I Can Has Cheezburger is Tainted

Post by Crazy Healer Lady » Tue Mar 23, 2010 8:36 am

Jus to let you all know, the site I Can Has Cheezburger.com is riddled with a very persistent virus which doesn't seem to be leaving the site anytime soon. It's all subpages as well. Even good antivirus systems (i.e. NOT Norton) are being fooled. It digs its way into your "windows antivirus" and into system restore, so even with tweaking the registry your only hope (or our only hope, anyway) is(was) to reformat.

Just a heads up. I'd stay away from the site for a while. No more laughing kitties.

I can't even go on the website to check. 1 or 2 clicks is all it takes.

McAfee site advisor has two recent posts about possible virus activity on that site.

That's the closest to a news report that I can find.
