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

Good luck trying to hack my computer.


What most people don't understand is that Linux (and Unix) are certainly hackable. In fact, it's no different that any other system in that regard (there is no such thing as a fully-protected system unless it's turned off).

However, as regards viruses, what you say is true. But Linux (and Unix) can have viruses run on their system...it's simply that the user must aid in the hacking in a small part by doing something they shouldn't, whereas on systems such as Windows, "the system does the helping". Typically, this is done via the trojan horse method on Unix-based systems.

Is this the conjecture thread? Awesome!


The fake user tokle was using a site that uploaded pictures of Big Breasted Women to his computer.
The powers that be are saying this is nothing to be concerned about, and that he is not accessing any personal information.
But he managed to click on links he shouldn't have clicked on the BBW website, so I still feel like this is something he should be concerned about.

He thinks that he has tried all the solutions (i.e. anti-malware software, clearing cache, deleting cookies), but he can only manage to deal with the symptoms of the illness, the cause is still there. He feels like trying to mop up the water from the floor while the sink is overflowing. He can clean my computer as well as he can, but the next day the malware returns.

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

or

Is tokle failing to use the correct means to resolve his problem and to mitigate the future risks of unintentionally downloading malware?

If you want to avoid leprosy on the internet you have to religiously avoid the three Ps: Politcs, Porn, and Pirates.

Unfortunately, those are exactly the three things that 95% of Internet users are searching for, so of course 95% of Internet users contract virii.

Helpin my buddy tokle out here to better explain the situation.......

The user in the OP, has been seen browsing our Clan forums multiple times, even though he is not in our clan. check out his wall, it has happened to multiple clans as well, not JUST TNC.

And he has been here for months and moths. Only played like 3 games or something, and deadbeated all of them. (somehow won while deadbeating :lol: ). So whatever he is, he must be a robot or something crawling through all forums of CC.

However, I am pretty sure I searched my computer and could not find any files on my computer.

This does make one wonder.

He has no forum posts, so he couldn't have joined any tournaments through the appropriate methods. So, either some TO put him in without following proper protocols, or he hacked his way into (password-protected) tournament games. Not a huge challenge, I realize, since a lot of TOs use really simple and predictable passwords, but still somewhat a concern.

What I think is really funny. He hasn't taken a single turn, and yet he has a 4.0 rating. :roll:

This guy isn't a threat, although I have no idea why he is hitting clan forum pages. (No, he can't actually see your forum -- this has been explained several times)

Maybe he's looking for tokle's Big Breasted Women pics?

Can a brother get some love?
