Hmmm, my antivirus warning on Wigan Rejects

Started by: Don GB (242)

I thought I would have a look at that other site today but when I logged on (and every few seconds) my antivirus warned me that it kept blocking a site named geniusdexchange.com. When I logged off it stopped. Apparently it said danger of software download (I can't remember if it said "malicious" software download).

It's a shame as WR looks like a decent site.

Does anyone know if the warning is genuine and something one should be concerned about? Thankfully my antivirus seemed to block every attempt.

Many thanks for the explanation Arfur, that's good to know, you can't be too careful.

TBH I go on regularly and have never seen anything like that. Better to be safe than sorry.

I'd run an antivirues scan. It looks like a browser hijacker.

Good advice First Mate,

I have done a Kaspersky full Total antivirus, Malwarebytes Premium, Superantispyware, Spybot Search and Destroy scans and nothing found. The fact that I haven't had the alerts on any other websites accessed by the same browser suggests it is the Wigan Rejects site that has the issue.

Cheers, Don.

If you call 2 posts in 24 hours, "doing very well" that is, Don.

you only see 2 posts because you are banned, The posts you can't see are interesting, informative and troll free and you know that because, if you know the door is locked, you must have tried it, if you tried it you must want to come in,
But you cannot,

I must be banned off Wigan Rejects too, because I only see 2 posts every 24 hours.

Hang on, I can't be banned! I've seen 6 posts today and only 2 of them are mine!

As did those that have been banned multiple times. You are a prime example.
