Posted on 12/31/2010 4:19:24 PM PST by Celtic Cross
I need some help! Lately, I've been getting a vile pop up. Its far beyond any other ad I've encountered on the web. Appearing randomly, in the sidebars and ad spaces of completely innocuous websites, is an ad which says 'sl*ts of facebook', or some other offensive message, but always referring to facebook. In every ad is an uncensored image of a completely naked woman.
I don't know is there's some virus on my computer; I've tried running spybot several times, with no result.
If any other FReeper has faced such a problem, and/or knows how to stop it from happening, please lend a hand. I'm getting darn tired of it.
If you still get the crap after running Malwarebytes, try booting into Safe Mode and running it.
Laz, your expertise is required... ;-)
There’s completely naked women popping up on your computer?
I fail to see the problem.....
I just did a google search on your behalf and came across a posting about an app which causes your computer to display “facebook sluts,” as well as advice about getting rid of it. My guess is that you’re the victim of some kind of malware... good luck trying to get rid of it. I think that concentrated efforts with better experts than me can help you out.
Thanks all! I’ll try your suggestions.
Restore the OS to a date prior to the sl*t popup.
ShadowAce, this sounds like a job for your Tech Ping List. Celtic Cross complains of naked women popping up on his screen. Probably has some malware.
Obviously, if Celtic Cross were me, there would be no problem. Women run away when I am around — they never have time to get naked.
Perhaps the TP list has a better solution.
Happy New Year
Because the naked chick is Helen Thomas.
Thanks for sparing us the picture ;-)
We have, but it was beyond us; so we took the computer to get the professionals to clean it up. - Maybe some site you were on dropped some advertising cookies on you.
“Thanks for sparing us the picture ;-)”
One Who Will Remain Nameless responded to a query with, “Let me illustrate my point with this graph.” I clicked on the link and up popped a two-headed Helen Thomas (like one wouldn’t be enough). Ack!
Dear, someone in your house is looking at porn to get that malware.
One thing, though; roughly half the time I search using google, and click a result, google or something automatically redirects me to a random page. Its never tried to redirected me a porn site, as far as I remember, but I always close the browser pretty quick, so I don't know for sure.
use “hijack this” as well as malwarebytes. Also a rootkit detector can be run. Combofix works best on pre vista windows O/S
“One thing, though; roughly half the time I search using google, and click a result, google or something automatically redirects me to a random page.”
Google won’t do that unless you hit the “I’m feeling lucky” button.
If you’re getting redirected like that, it’s malware that’s doing it. Definitely download Malwarebytes. The virus might prevent you from doing this, in which case you’ll need to download it from another computer onto a usb drive to get it on your computer.
I have a friend that is having the same problem and I promise you she is not looking a porn.
for future ref. if needed .... thank-you !
Just not my style. ;)
what antivirus are you using?
superantispyware is a great anti malware.
hitman pro3.5 is a great antivirus/rootkit, package free for 30 days, and can be run from a usbstick, with other installed antivirus packages. Also secunia psi(free) will keep other programs on system up to date, minimizing other attack vectors.
