We believe we had some potential viruses coming in through banner ads from one of our network offers, but that the ad should no longer be appearing. If you believe you may be getting a virus from our site please send an email to adreport@sparkpeople.com.

  I have had several virus attacks on the Sparks site in the last couple of weeks, today being the latest. I get these pop ups saying AVG has detected a virus and starts scanning. I don't have AVG virus software and I have immediately closed down computer. This happens very fast and I can't begin to tell you what part of Sparks I am on. Usually reading articles, though.

    I had just finished doing Trivia and the Poll today about 2:30pm pst, and I got a pop-up saying that there was a trojan virus threat and I needed to click for the next step in erasing it. I had already been warned by people in one of my teams that if that happened, click out of my browser immediately, which I did, then turned my computer off. When I turned it back on, my ESET NOD 32 antivirus scanned everything on start-up and I haven't had that message again...yet. This has been an ongoing problem for people on my team for a few weeks, but it is the first time it has shown up on my laptop.

    I had the same experience as Monty twice this past week. My security caught it and took care of it.

Something popped up the other night and said it was a virus, My computer then tried to remove it and was successful. It happened so fast that I don't remember where I was on Spark.

    I got my computer wiped out Friday, Norton anti virus did not get it. I got a new windows 7 and they put in Kaspersky, said it could catch more, so lets hope so. and I would not swear ro ir, but I am sure I got it right here in Sparks.

and Kaspersky has refused me opening 2 other sites here in Sparks since then

Good Morning; I guess I am an old softy but I was just on the royal web site that was just launched for the wedding. www.officialroyalwedding2011.org
I have been over to England many times. My BF lives there. Every one loves a wedding. It is the beginning of a life together. I got married in Germany. How did you get married? Where did you get married? It is over 30 years for me. Any ways, I am up and feeling great. I have been getting more exercise than expected each day. Need to get to my taxes - usually they are done by now but have been delayed due to care taking my son. I need to focus and had not been able to focus on taxes. How are you doing?
Are you able to exercise more than usual. Have you been consistent? I finally got the 2 lbs off I had gained. My secret is watching my calorie in take and exercise. It really is not a secret, but I was never able to execute it until about a year ago. Weight control is not a mystery. It is pretty straight forward. It is a discipline when your life might not be an easy journey. Every one have a wonderful day!! You deserve a great day!! Get up and exercise!! You are loved unconditionally!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi, I am running late as usual, My DH tells me, I am spending too much time on Sparks and exercising, I dont know if this is true or not,here it is 5:30 and I am just getting started on it, but I did get in like 4 hours exercise, so maybe he has a point, I know I am getting stressed out trying to get things done, and not succeeding.
I got married in Long Beach California, very very small wedding, the misister, his wife as witness and my DH and myself. and it will be 50 years in June, my family and his was all out of state, so we just got married, I would love to renew our vows on our 50th, but there again, I would go very small. so we will see.
I have had such a busy exercise day, yesterday was almost non-existant in that area, so I gotta make it up, right? Hugs, Mary
I also find the royal wedding very interesting.

Good Morning; I know there is concern about viruses every where but this site is ok. I click on a series of these sites for breast cancer, hunger, health and animal rescue. they just added veterans, homeless and ones that need a meal. It is a worthy cause. Please pass this link to your friends. Our veterans need to have a hot meal and a bed. www.theveteranssite.com/clickToGive/subscr

I did over 12000 steps yesterday, but have now incorporated my son as my personal trainer. He is bored and can not do much exercise except walking. He asked me, mom do you do any weights. I said not much, so now we are having a session a day. He is trying to keep busy. I was surprised that he knows so much. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon He is going to work my upper body. I just told him to take it easy with me. I have been incorporating him in chores around the house. He mopped my floor without bending. I did the bending but it was good. I am learning how flexible one can be and still get their exercise in. Get up and move today. Do not let events stop you for long. You deserve a healthy life style. Have a good day!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

What a morning! I was on Sparks and getting my points in like I did yesterday. I got a virus attack. I added a separate blog. I have decided to not go for points on any external sites with in Sparks. The community message boards are ok but Sparks brings in outside sources that is where there is potential viruses. My DH does this for a living. He says there is thousands of attacks a day on many sites. they are trying to take over our computers and get our personal information. Please protect your computer with Virus software, a good firewall and be careful of emails from unknown email address.
I will exercise today. I am a bit shaken but I will calm down and relax. I got in 12000 steps yesterday. The key words are to be aware and protect your computer and your personal information. Have a good day!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Good Morning, I read your other blog first, it happened to me, big time. although I do not really know what is a outside source, any pointers? I have my firewall set really low, because it blocks so much, maybe I better reset it. I got my 10,000 steps yesterday, in fact a little over 11,000. as I said earlier, I am going to try to stay around 10,000 a day, because I have been having trouble getting my legs to relax at night. and just cant sleep sound. It is a beautiful day out so far, so I will be getting out, maybe it will be dry enough to dig a little in my garden spot. Thanks for the information and have a great day. I just wish I had read it a few days earlier.

virus attacks real - window is fake - X out

Monday, February 28, 2011

I have had two virus attacks when I have been using Sparks.
yesterday- I was reading and getting points from Daily Blog and a virus attack. A window came up from Windows :it was telling me to press button to clear all. WARNING: Do not do what it says VIRUS window is an actual danger. Always use the X at the right of the window - X out. I am married to a security expert. He diagnosed it for me. So I know what to do. But today I got it again as I was getting points from a recipe. I got the same thing. I had to X - out and I ran a my virus scan. I tried reporting this to SPARKS but there is so many pages and not really an email address or phone number to call. Win32/Hoax.Renos.HX

    I keep getting signs that windows is closing because of a problem but it doesn't actually close. I wonder if that is because it is keeping what you have described from opening up.

    The very same thing happened to me Saturday or maybe Friday, it wiped out my windows completely, and I was on Sparks, I had to have a new one put in, so I went ahead and got windows 7, well, I am not too used to it yet, so yesterday I was on my lap top and in Sparks and the same thing happened to me, the very same as you have trojan horse, etc. I thought it was from windows the first time, because it had something that I thought I recognized, anyway, when I tried to get back on, when I turned it on, in big red letters, it said you have been infected, etc etc. I swear it is always something, last night, I just turned off my computer, and went back on later and it seemed to be okay.
