Windows 7: WARNING: Redirects from RLSLOG

19 Sep 2009   #1

WARNING: Redirects from RLSLOG

I'm a active user of and have just been redirected to a site containing the 'Personal Antivirus' fake AV looking malware.
warning   Warning
Do not browse http://**** unless you have adequate security features installed

Here a pic of the page I was redirected to

WARNING: Redirects from RLSLOG-virus-warning.jpg

The site then acts as if it's performing a scan of your system, reporting several 1000 trojans & malware. I have sent (at personaly risk to my system, keeping the site open ) an 'Unsafe' feedback report to microsoft regarding this site.

Thought i'd give you all a heads up

Sorry, Jacee, I had to edit your post - even though yo tried to make it not clickable with the **s it was still a live link - so I removed the URL tags with the original URL so it is not clickable anymore.

You are probably using the Rich Editor mode - if you click the A in the top right corner it switches the editor mode to pure basic mode - complete with all the tags and stuff.

The board has software running that automagically parses URLs and applies BBCode URL tags to them - but in the Rich edit mode it conveniently 'hides' the tags from you, so you never actually see the BBCode tags. I have set my options to always use the Basic editor and only switch to the rich editor when I want to check that a link got parsed correctly - as in when linking to a users name, like so - Jacee

Okay, did that! I'm definitely not familiar with type of board.
