No accuation directed at you, but when I click on your thread below my computer takes offense...

Life is strange, indeed, but be warned brethren...

The OP below has but eight posts to his credit, and his thread is causing my rig some heartburn.

Approach at your own risk...

And let's not get taken down like Slitherine!

Which thread are you referring to? The one with WW2 naval photos, or the one with WW2 bombers?

This one:

edit: Deleted link to apparently infected thread.

However, I went on to apologize in the same thread. I describe, briefly, what led me to post this thread. The only instances where I've ever experienced something like that was malware related. But, that doesn't appear to have been the case as regards to the thread in question. Again, my regrets to the OP, as he doesn't appear to have done anything wrong.

Well, in my own inimitable way, let my muddy the water with the following:

I ran the same scan a week ago, and didn't find anything.

So, who was it that was so ungraciously dumping on the graves of HMS Repulse recently?

Ahh the dreaded sality virus. We got that one around work a few weeks ago. Big panic, endless scans and specialty exe's to kill it off. We won.

Any chance at all that we can get the forum staff/admins to take a look at the links in the suspect thread?

Edit: and some of the new members, HMS Repulse and Frohmankf1, for instance. This can get pretty ugly, IMO. I suspect that my LAN is gonna be ok because it was properly patched. Others may not be so lucky.

I dont know what it is youre complaining about. None of those photos caused me any problems. Its possible that a virus could have attached itself to you from any number of sources.

Respectfully, Firefox didn't lockup somewhere else. My display didn't change color somewhere else. And the system didn't emit a high-pitched squeal while accessing another webpage. All that happened when I was browsing your thread on WW2 aircraft. One of the ways that sailty.virus propagates is through infected links embedded in posts to forums like this one. BTW, most people who acquire this little critter, don't realize that their system is infected, particularly Windows XP users.

Since I was running Ubuntu from a work comp when I loaded those I seriously doubt that virus couldve piggy-backed from there. It might have trojaned in from some other source because my home comp is XP and Ive loaded the photos onto it but there hasnt been an alarm from AVG about it. Usually AVG finds these from my experience.


I think I caught the Beet yellows virus from your links.

Which one? Most of those photos Ive either had saved for years or some I loaded from wiki or collectors that have also had them for years. Ive examined them repeatedly but I have no alarms or viruses loading on my home comp at all. I would know it since this system is old and not virus-proof by any stretch.


I thought my JOKE would get a chuckle. I do not even know what the Beet yellows virus is.
