I do not exclude such a possibility!

I have Symantec Antivirus Corporate edition.
I've been using different versions of Norton Antivitus and Norton Internet Security Suits and other Symantec software since 1998... and I've never had any serious problems with viruses!

Sometimes I received warnings from Antivirus software about threats when I visited some seemingly innocent pages but it happened mainly when I used to browse the Net with Internet Explorer.. and since some time ago I haven't ever used IE.

Please report if you see further evidence of this; tech has addressed it and the alerts should not be occurring any longer.

Thank you for your reports and vigilance

I write for Marine Rebillout, eversmile, who having undergone the attack of the virus yesterday morning, lost all her photos on her Pc and also on its hard disk which was connected at this moment there.Now , she can't either connect to internet any more. Attention, the attack seems serious, it would be good to prevent all the members. As for me, the virus is blocked by "norton".

Default system check virus

For those who got attacked (Marine, ThierryA), t seems the "system check" virus damage is reversible and it only hides the files from the user.... until it is removed... check your antivirus forums....

Pour les victimes de l'attaque, rassurez vous... ce virus (system check) ne fait que "cacher" les fichiers qui pourront finalement etre rcuprs aprs dsinfection... consulter les forums de vos antivirus....

Its really spreading like wild fire.

Our friend Sayeed Rahman lost all his files on his computer. All his picture files from years of hard work and travel has simply wiped out in a flash of second.

I really wish the issue to be fixed as soon as possible.

I'm getting updates from our tech team regularly on this; I hope to have an update soon.

Meanwhile we have already added a CAPTCHA to the registration system.
