A couple of days back I found my browser (firefox) open to a webpage
http://dailyjobsnews.tk/ that I know I did not open. It was what was
obviously a fake webpage made to look like a news site with a story
about google offering free jobs to the public or something like
Today, a friend on facebook is posting links to this site on his wall.
I can't seem to find any refrence to this using the search engines but
I think my computer may be infected.
Does anyone know about this and how to detect if I have been infected
and how to disinfect?
Thanks for any assistance.
Re: New Virus?
The website you visited redirected FF to that suspect one. (A redirect
is a request from a server to FF to connect to a different URL (website
address.) You should set FF to accept redirects only with your permission:
Tools > Options > Advanced > General tab > Accessibility > check the box
next to "Warn me when web sites try to redirect or reload the page."
Advise your friend to remove the links to that suspect website.
