Warning to all GSOMers, there is still a virus on GSOM



I feel that I am taking a chance to even put up this post but here goes. date: March 1rst.

Several days ago I tried to access GSOM but my computer would not let me with a message that it had been reported to Microsoft that this site contained a virus. So I stayed  for a few days and figured that if it was true it would be taken care of. So today I was back and got in with no problem. At the moment that I clicked on Brit Warriors post a fake AVG warning came on telling me that multiple trogans etc. had hit my computer and I needed to press "fix"(or whatever) to kill the viruses. I recognised this fake warning for what it was ie: if you do what it says you have just open the door for the real virus. So I jumped straight out and started my scan with my real AVG anti virus program. In my experience this is the kind of virus that will kill your computer so look out for this and stay off GSOM untill someone actually fixes this.

I do not know for sure that the virus is only in Brits post but I had been on GSOM for awhile on different threads and it happened the second that I clicked his. This is not a joke...it happen you are warned.
