Just a heads up to any of you who use mtbr forum , there seems to be a trojan virus attached. Have healed my PC but now i have no desktop background and cant change it!

Bit OT i know but just wanted to warn. :evil:

I thought it was just me, but there was a recently thread on Singletrack about this.

I got a pop-up but my A-V isn't detecting anything.
But the MTBR homepage sometimes tries to redirect my browser.

All a bit dodgy, really.

There is definately some sort of some kind of 'dropper/hijacker' on there, don't think it has a payload as such cos my F-Secure would have 'done one' but they should clean their act up a bit IMHO :roll: :roll:

Just checked with the MTBR admins.

They're aware of the situation and working to resolve it.
