Hey guys, in the last couple of weeks the amount of trojans and viruses being packed into files is an absolute nightmare!! So far in the last month i've had to re-install twice and recover once from these nastys!! You may think you're downloading a legit file and if like me you're using comodo you'll get asked if you wanna install or whatever and because you think yes i am installing a legit item you go ahead and screw yourself in the process!!
For some unknow reason this crap seems to be bypassing MOST malware/adware/virus protection systems! I've read on a number of forums of guys getting nailed by this crap. I'll give you one example, i saw this on my torrent site:
Cool you think to yourself, i'll save my ratio and i'll get it from a newsgroup
off you go to newzleech and do your search and you download it...
Low and behold it seems all good but when you extract it you see its a WMV file,
try and watch it and oh no you don't have the right codec!! Oh and now windows offers to get the right codec for you, sweet i'll let windows media get it for me,
download, install and crap movie still won't work!! OH well screw it i'll wait for another release!!
AND now the fun begins when you reboot your PC!! Shit i've been locked out, shit oh no somethings wrong!! YOU BET there's something wrong!!
See how an innocent mistake like that can screw you over?!
Be very VERY aware of what you're downloading if you're not sure about the source BUT also LOOK at what newsgroup has upped the file!
I mean PUKKA files i would say are 100% safe BUT in this case
some do good for nothing is tarnishing the PUKKA name and uploading this crap!!
Glad to see now on newzleech someone has posted that the above file is trojaned!
ALSO guys getting stuff from DEMONOID pay attention as there is a a number of posters of files waiting to screw you over!!
So guys be safe when d/l stuff out there.....
