Subject: [USGENWEB-NW] USGenWeb still under attack...
Date: Tue, 20 Oct 2009 17:23:37 -0400 (EDT)
Contrary to last night's message from National saying the virus attacks were finally cleaned up, it seems that the National <usgenweb.org> site and the MTGenWeb State and some of their county sites are still infected.
Also being reported are infections of sites hosted by IX Web Hosting. At least some of the sites hosted on <theusgenweb.org> are infected - the free pages that Joy Fisher offered when we all started moving off from RW. I believe, but am not sure, that MTGenWeb is hosted there.
The infection is a flash player that pops up.
We are being advised to stay off the USGenWeb and other state websites while the systems gurus figure out the best way to deal with this. I ran a scan with Malwarebytes this morning to check out my computer. You might want to ensure your virus protection is updated and run a scan as well.
