there seems to be a virus attached to this website. i noticed at home when i logged on that my antivirus was stopping something and now my trendmicro scanner stopped 5 trojan virus attempts.March 18, 2010 at 9:53 pm #80411
I haven’t had any problems and I’m using Avast Internet Suite. I did find something did try to download over on the main KM website and I reported it to the admin.
I suggest since you say it’s coming from the forum, copy and paste the messages to a post to the forum Admin so it can be checked out.March 18, 2010 at 10:55 pm #80413psyopsMember
It’s true. There is something wrong. My anti virus software has traced the source of the trojan back to the website.March 18, 2010 at 10:58 pm #80414
That’s probably the same one I got from Avast. The forum itself that I see from Avast is fine but yes KMWW’s main site has something going on.March 18, 2010 at 11:33 pm #80416david-robersonMember
I have tried to get online twice today from two different computers. The antivirus on one computer blocked access to this site; the antivirus on this computer gave me a warning but allowed me to continue. Something is definitely wrong and I will do a system scan as soon as I log off here.

Ok, folks-got in touch with the folks at KMMW-word has been sent to their web person to check this out.March 19, 2010 at 2:43 pm #80422bradmMember
Thanks mara-jade. I’ve also picked up a warning when I log onto the forum. My anti-virus lets me continue if I choose to.March 19, 2010 at 9:27 pm #80433
Oh me too Brad. Avast blocked the offending file from the main site and I could get in fine.
Folks-just make sure your antivirus is updated and if you want some extra protection, I highly recommend Malwarebytes. The free version is great but to be able to schedule (updates,scan) and real-time protection, the extra $$ is well spent:wav:March 19, 2010 at 9:42 pm #80435AnonymousGuest
Thanks for the alerts everybody,
Please accept our apologies! Our security team is trying to find the culprit. We think we may have found it, but we need to check into a few more things.
If you continue to get warnings please let us know the details and we’ll try to clamp down on it asap!:
