Hacker using this site for malware

Postby tokle on Thu Oct 25, 2012 10:57 am

The fake user tribalfusion009 is using this site site to upload malware to our computers.
The powers that be are saying this is nothing to be concerned about, and that he is not accessing any personal information.
But he is still managing to upload files onto my computer, so I still feel like this is something I should be concerned about.

All the solutions I have been given (i.e. anti-malware software, clearing cache, deleting cookies) only deal with the symptoms of the illness, the cause is still there. I feel like trying to mop up the water from the floor while the sink is overflowing. I can clean my computer as well as I can, but the next day the malware returns.

Isn't this something this site should be concerned about?

If it's not a troll, I don't think the OP realizes that the only way this happens is if he either gives info that he shouldn't be giving or clicking on links he shouldn't be clicking.

It's like I tell my grandma that I regrettably introduced to the internet. Never click anything you aren't 100% sure is safe. And even then, don't click it.

Ahoy Tokle (and everyone else),

In regards to Tribal Fusion---it looks to be spyware, most likely picked up outside of CC.

TribalFusion is a spyware tracking cookie that installs on your computer and tracks your browsing habits; it sends the information to its main server and other third-party advertisers. It gathers potentially sensitive information such as email addresses, usernames, where you shop and how many times you shop, and it exposes this information to others. TribalFusion tracking cookies can be removed manually or using a power anti-virus program with spyware removal. This ensures that vital information remains protected.


Here are instructions on how to remove the spyware: http://www.ehow.com/how_5150285_rid-tribalfusion.html

He's not posting any links, so it is not because we have clicked on something.

It's not just me, though, a lot of my clan-mates have found it too.
