    I get the same warning.
    Never got it yesterday only to day and only this site.
    js: pdfka-gen Is the warning I get.

    Did a scan on my PC just in case and it comes up clean.
    So It must be the forum. :(

    Will it ever end?

    The site looks fine. If it was not for the AV I would not even know there was an issue.

    The said it was a classifieds was at fault or was it adverts?
    If its the first one, scrap it and go with was works for every other forum on the web. :)

    Is it safe to hang around, or should we leave the site for the time being?

    This should not be happening We deleted the plug in/exploit completely and have not re installed it at all.

    I see SRS have been hit too, and they have a different system to us.

    Don't download anything from here, and if people can post the messages, or locations it finds the problem so as to narrow the search.

    Admin are aware...

    First time I've been able to get on here on my desktop in ages. My antivirus software had blocked the site completely as it had seen several Google related virus/spyware reports. Been fine on my mobile though

    We have had a few issues but if you have a few access points you would still get on.

    When i was running Norton had nothing but problems my friend who runs his own computer business put ESET Security on mine has not had 1 single problem since

    Think its supposed to be one of the best business security systems but runs fine with no slowing issues on home pc.

    There has been some issue world wide with forums as there was a glitch allowing access / weakness. If you do not download anything you will be fine,

    It worries me how many people are surfing from work with such poor security. Most home users seem to be better protected.

    The issue is ongoing. The malicious software has been removed, but the damage done seems to be database deep.

    That needs to be pulled apart and re constructed if i understand correctly.

    I will get admin to update tomorrow as to course of action etc

    Cheers guys.
