    Twice when I entered the Glock Talk this morning I got a Warning from my Norton anti-virus about Bloodhound.exploit.337. It may be from my connection to the cyber world.

    Yes, it appears that GlockTalk has a virus. I had to disable Java script as something called "BBBInvestigation.org" is trying to run scripts that among other things redirects one to a Google page, opens up Windows Media Player, and tries to download a file.

    The hackers have been hitting lots of websites these days - "drive by vulnerabilities" don't ya know - and those Drive By Ops are for the 3 major OS's... so they are pushing this agenda hard.

    What a great time to be alive! I sometimes dream of meeting a group of hackers at the shooting range... It's a good dream... For me anyway...:supergrin:

    Know what I mean???

    Just reading Eric's post..(there's a big thread in GNG).. I think saying "Glocktalk had a virus" is stretching it a bit... If I'm understanding his post correctly, someone manipulated a hole/bug in the Vbulletin software that runs GT... it could have happened to any site running VB.

    Egads, this is running, so to speak, on a Windows system.
    Glad I use a onetime username and passwd.

    Someone manipulated one of the flash games in the arcade area...

    Eric posted about it in GNG.

    That's why I don't understand when a newscaster says the death rate in an area has increased.
    The death rate is always the same. One per person, sooner or later.
