Savage Shooters Forum

Does anyone else get a virus warning and the browser shuts down when you go to Savage Shooters Forum? Just started happening to me last night.

The virus shows as "Trojan.Pidief.C" and the browser is Firefox. I have not tried it yet with IE, not sure if I want to actually...

I was just all over that site and no warnings of any kind. I use Firefox Ver. 3.0.4. Below is some info from Symantec's website. What anti-virus software are you using?

Re: Savage Shooters Forum

Very strange, it shows as having been "cleaned by deletion" I have Symantec antivirus and Firefox 3.0.4 as well.

Edited to add: After further reading it seems it may be related to the version of Acrobat you are running. I will try updating that and see what happens.

Re: Savage Shooters Forum

Lately the site has been plagued by hackers and server problems. Jim has been working diligently getting everything cleaned up and is moving to a new server tomorrow.

Hopefully, everything goes smooth.

Re: Savage Shooters Forum

I got it to open in IE and read the thread about the server and hacker issues while the error message wanting to close the program was on the screen.

Hopefully they will get it straightened out in the near future.
