Okay...um...Well I went to click the best video games thread and it said that loading this page may be harmful to your computer.

Britani Knight.net was the name of it.

So I click the BK thread and it comes up again.

Whats going on? :S

That happens to me every once in a while, but I just continue onto the site and nothing happens.

I cannot reproduce this... are you all who's getting the virus from the UK?? and I need a screen shot of this to resolve this issue... I cannot help trouble shoot if no one is able to do that.

Thanks

Nah I haven't been affected. I do have a damn good immune system though! BOOYA!

No problems here but I'm always on my phone rather than laptop!

I think it has more to do with your computer then EWN itself, but the fact that the site is based off of BK is somewhat suspicious. I'd do a system restore on your computer just to be safe, going back at least a week.

If others are experiencing it too, it could be a problem. The good thing is, it looks like Frank is on it.

I suggest to the others NOT to try it out themselves, because it may end up harming your computers too.

Edit: Very oddly, when I made this post, I got the EXACT same message. I preceded anyways though. I hope Frank can sort this out, it doesn't have anything to do with the new server does it? Why Ms. Knight though? I blame you BK fanboys....

It is traced to Wade Barret. I got the same malware page every single time I viewed his profile. Maybe it will go away if you change your signature.

Well he does that like every 5 minutes anyway, so I don't think we have anything to worry about :D

Sully

It makes sense if it's traced to Wade, because it seems like it only happens in the threads he's involved in. I think he just fixed his sig now, and I'm no longer being redirected to the other page. Hopefully everything is in the clear, but I suggest everyone does a system restore and backs up their computers a day or two.

100 plus awesome points to Panda for catching it! :D I never knew that a sig pic would cause a problem but I didn't encounter the problem in the BK thread.

Rather interesting turn of events with Miss Knight threads and WB79.

At least that is over with but if any viral problems persist, this is the place.

Maybe this is a sign that Knight has a few "viruses" herself. Maybe I should stay away from her...

Yup! I think from now up, if I'm going to upload pics, vids or change sig pics I'm going to do it from my laptop rather than phone! I'll have more protection that way!

People attach viruses to images and links so you may accidentally post something that's going to be infected. If you don't have a good security scanner on your comp or are using EWN via phone, you may not be able to be made aware of any suspect files. Don't post pics from a phone at all, I have a feeling that's where a lot of viruses are being leaked from

Yup, duly noted! No more posting pics and vids from my phone! I have good security for my laptop, so I'll only post certain things from there in future!

I'm actually still experiencing the message when viewing the Knight thread. Maybe you should close it and start another one?
