[url]www.avg.com[/url] Some Palestine message is just displayed. Quite funny. Sorry for not linking any articles, I actually can't find any currently. If you find any articles please link them in this thread. [editline]8th October 2013[/editline] Seems like they fixed it, pretty much straight after I posted this. Daym, wish I'd got a screenshot. [editline]8th October 2013[/editline] New link [url]http://avg.com/gb-en/homepage[/url] Hackers apparently responsible: [url]https://twitter.com/KdmsTeam[/url] [img]http://i.imgur.com/J3UZW5D.png[/img] [editline]8th October 2013[/editline] Whatsapp and Avira have also been hacked today by the same group. Article on CNET suggests that traffic from Whatsapp servers may have also been redirected to the hackers server. [url]http://crave.cnet.co.uk/software/wha...aced-50012438/[/url]
You should have taken a screenshot

Weird spelling sometimes and what do they think they will gain from this?
[QUOTE=Valiantttt;42452571]Weird spelling sometimes and what do they think they will gain from this?[/QUOTE] Probably because English isn't their first language, and masses of media exposure was probably their first thought.
[QUOTE=Gustafa;42452577]Probably because English isn't their first language, and masses of media exposure was probably their first thought.[/QUOTE] Clearly they've never seen Reddit/FP. Bad grammar and sentence structure makes everyone disregard your message. :v:
[QUOTE=Del91;42452537]Good. AVG is garbage. :colbert:[/QUOTE] Recently stopped using AVG after looking up what people had been saying about it more recently and I never realized just how much it was slowing my system down. I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials right now but if anyone could recommend a better antivirus to me or whatever you happen to be using right now, please do.
[QUOTE=Gustafa;42452468]Some Palestine message is just displayed. Quite funny.[/QUOTE] The message isn't funny.
MSE is perfect, I don't even notice it.
[QUOTE=MelonGuy;42452614]MSE is perfect, I don't even notice it.[/QUOTE] This. But maybe we do not notice it because it doesn't do shit? :v:
AVG is ass
[QUOTE=Scot;42452611]The message isn't funny.[/QUOTE] Didn't say it was.

who can i trust?
[QUOTE=CommanderPT;42452632]This. But maybe we do not notice it because it doesn't do shit? :v:[/QUOTE] Open notepad or anything. Paste: [code]X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*[/code] Save as anything, probably ending in .exe MSE (should work for any virusscanner thats decent) should remove it nearly instantly after saving.
i use avg what should i use instead

If you want to change you could always try Avast, that's what I use.
[QUOTE=Del91;42452537]Good. AVG is garbage. :colbert:[/QUOTE] AVG is good for mobile devices imo, at least for Android devices.

I feel bad because I just recommended AVG to a coworker the other day.
[QUOTE=Elstumpo;42452776]i use avg what should i use instead[/QUOTE] norton install it atleast 7 times
This isn't a security flaw with AVG itself, it's with their domain registrar.
[QUOTE=Paramud;42452911]I feel bad because I just recommended AVG to a coworker the other day.[/QUOTE] The only recommendation I ever give pertaining to AVG centers around the word "uninstall"

As it should :v:.
[QUOTE=Teddybeer;42452982]As it should :v:.[/QUOTE]"WHAT ARE YOU DOING NO DON'T DO THAT NOW I HAVE TO CLEAN IT UP." It's like I just took a shit on the floor right in front of a janitor.
