Webman,

While playing the monthly game king contest i keep getting redirected to a malicious site driverfixersoftware.com. Can you change my ad package so this does not keep happening? Thank you.

Those should be scanned and blocked. Please let me know if it's better now.

Move to a cave in New Mexico and cut off all contact with the outside world.

haha that's pretty good poster tedlark.

poster faa, what makes you think the hack instagram has anything to do with this website, vp.com? my niece's boyfriend is a computer security administrator for a large well known gaming company, and he says most americans have no clue how often and how extensive the hack attacks and cyber threats the usa faces everyday truly are. its a huge business albeit criminal. russia ukraine & eastern europe, china, india, africa, and numerous other locations are where people operate 24/7 doing nothing except hacking and looking for vulnerable inlets to american systems and data. its the wild wild cyber world.

A R, you are spot on with your response. My first guess was that the instragram attack on FAA had absolutely nothing to do with this website and he was just posting here. He also posted this same info in a different forum thread as well.

Cyber attackers have gotten very good at disguising the attack and to the untrained eye the intended target of the attack may think it is an authentic email or inquiry. In order to authenticate the email an inside search can be made by someone with an IT background to determine the true source of the email. Hundreds of millions of these attacks are made daily.
