Default "Virus" Pop-Up

I'm pretty sure there was like a 1/100th chance of getting it but

As I opened pages I get some random "free" virus check from ijji.com. Now when I visited /ggftw (did just right before making this thread), it tried to give me a virus check and a spammed download of a virus.

Something called, Green...or whatever.

So must ggftw/I have to worry of this?

Might, or might not be.

There's possibility that your HOSTS file being hijacked, or browser hijacker exists in your computer.

Try post a new thread on Technical Issues section, and please provide the info based on this thread.

Well I closed out of ggftw's virus bypass and after I scanned my computer (with Microsoft Forefront Client Security) I had no virus, so I should be fine.

I'm not sure about ggftw.

Possible, but do posts about it for sure.

Also, do you remember which page you're on when you got that pops-up? Also, do you open other websites or tabbed windows as well?

Still, this will be notified to Noejeko for verifications.

I used Mozilla Firefox and set-upped a click shortcut on my bar (the one under the URL box). Yes I opened tabs. Everytime I open Firefox I open Ijji, then YouTube, then here.

The site I opened was leading to this :

/gg FTW! - Powered by vBulletin

The main head of all sections.

It would be helpful if there's other info such as the url of the pop-up, or screenshot of it.

Also, you might want to run a spybot scan just for making sure, and this issue has been notified to the site owner [Noejeko].

Also, probably it may come from ijji website itself, as you mentioned

You might want to send them email about this, too.

Sadly I did not get the URL of the pop-up, because I forgot and the stupid rogue kept spamming me to install it `-`

I'll be posting this in the Technical Section too.

I've run a check on code displaying on /gg FTW and there's nothing here you have to worry about. Please continue to engage this with Miyuki as there's a possibility another site has installed something/hijacked browsers or network settings/etc.

Highly chances that the malware script is on ijji's site, or certain scripts on ijji forums.

Yea...I get those "virus" pop-ups on ijji.com forums as well, anywhere else that I go to (ggftw, youtube and etc.) no viruses. I think it's the 3rd party ads from the ijji website that generates those malware scripts...because even I get it on lunia.ijji.com sometimes.

Yup, I've been getting 'malicious' detections from Ijji Forums too. As Allea said, it's most likely the ads.

Seems like there's security exploit in ijji. If possible, try minimizes your access to ijji forum, or uses Firefox with no-script addon so you can allow scripts on certain websites you allowed in the lists to work
Firefox - Firefox Browser | Free ways to customize your Internet
No-script - NoScript - JavaScript/Java/Flash blocker for a safer Firefox experience! - what is it? - InformAction

Try to notifies ijji admins about this as well.

DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS ON THE POPS-UP ON IJJI FORUMS.
