Were you not trying to imply that was going on kiddy fiddler sites?


Yes Child pornography sites is included in the category of "shady".


I am certainly NOT a paedophile, nor have I or would I ever go anywhere near a child porn site.
I would also appreciate it if you would watch your insinuations.

Someones a bit on the defensive side huh?
I never pointed a finger at you.
You were the one who assumed shady meant child pornography.
Blow the flames and smoke at someone else.
Maybe you are a paedophile.

My kids use ubuntu, so does my mum who's as computer literate as my cat.

I've been running one flavour or another of Linux since I had a 486.
I'm not 1337 I just find it less of a pain in the neck than windoze. My Mrs has a laptop with xp, damn things always going belly up.

Make the jump, folks. You don't need Microsoft.


I agree,
It started with ubuntu and I haven't even thought about going back to windows.
Except for netflix lol.

I have lovefilm on the ps3 and transmission on Linux ;-)

I wonder how many people just doublechecked their virus protection. I did

It was not a virus regarding child pornography, but I did acquire one that bumped me over and over again to porn sites when I visited a site on archeology. My husband was dragged into a site for Asian porn from netscape. People embed virus's and worms with explicit content all over the place. You do not need to visit anywhere "shady".

Thank you, I don't actually remember what site I got it from, but I do know that it was not a "shady" site.
I don't go on "shady" sites.
I'm a 40 year old father of 4 and in no way a pervert of any kind.
I had a brand new laptop for xmas and was installing shareware and getting it all set up.
Then I was hit.
So, again, thank you for highlighting the fact that you don't have to be doing something dodgy to be at risk from this threat.

Defensive! Too bloody right I'm defensive, you have implied that I have been visiting child porn sites. (or other "shady" sites, whatever that might mean).
You have also said that "Maybe you are a paedophile".
I do take immense offence at that.
Nothing that I have said in this thread has implied any improper behavior by myself.
I think you have been completely "out of order" and if you had an ounce of decency you would appologise and retract your previous statements.

Wow, it didn't take long for this thread so sink to the lowest possible level. I see nothing wrong with cautioning people to avoid shady sites. When I read the word "Shady" I immediately thought of torrents and movie download sites. I remember getting some virus's from these kind of sites.
It didn't even cross my mind to think the poster was implying Pedophile sites. Oh well. This could have been an interesting discussion about virus's, extortion and the latest trends designed to scam computer users. Oh well.....

I will check back in a few days to see if the atmosphere has improved.

Yeah, I didn't mean pedophile sites when I said "shady" even though they do fall in that category.
I was referring to torrent and movie download sites as well.
The guy assumed that's what I was talking about so I just went along with it.
The funny thing is, I was stating that EVERYONE should stay off of shady websites and he took it as a personal attack. lol

I could remove it, I doubt I'll ever have to deal with it though.


speaking in case of the german version called "BKA trojaner" - it was EVERYWHERE, it was soo popular that every 1-2 months they warned about it in nearly every news channel, news paper and consumer-show...

bka-trojaner.de... here are pics of some versions...

Ugh... This sort of thing pee's me off no end.
Some time ago (2003/4 ish) while browsing the internet with a friend and my girlfriend, a nasty flashing pop-up appeared on my screen saying something along the lines of 'The FBI knows you have been viewing Child Porn. Click here to buy our evidence eliminating software for only $39.99'

It took some explaining to convince my gf that it was a scam.... why would the FBI tell a small software company that I was on their 'list' and give me a chance to wipe the evidence, they would just kick my door in.
Also I'm in the UK.
Luckily my other friend knew the score, asked me if I'd tried installing Java recently, and it turns out I had for something totally unrelated (another friend wanted to show me some pics from a festival he went to) and it turns out that was to blame, some security hole in a release that got targeted by the scammers.
Even after we had explained to my gf it was an advert and a scam.... she still looked at me with shifty eyes for a while after. What if my mate hadn't been there to help with the rational explanations?

The people behind scams like this are the scum of the earth. In this age of knee-jerk, no smoke with out fire reactions, I wonder how many lives have been ruined unjustly.
