Spam from Titan poker.com

Recommended Posts

When I first access WP forums, I get a pop-up from TitanPoker.com. This happens both at work and at home. It sometimes happens when I switch from one forum to another as well.

This started a few days ago.

 

Anyone else get this or something similar?

How do you stop it?

 

thanks,

dave

Hi Dave,

 

I don't get this, and have never heard of it happening.

 

I think (and may be wrong) this may be to do with some issues with your browser and/or a malware that your have inadvertently downloaded. I'm pretty sure it is not Wetpixel related:)

I've also had a Titan Poker pop-up in last few days when opening WP forum on my browser. Has only happened once with no repeats.

 

Cheers,

Jim.

Has anyone else seen this? We haven't had any issues with security lately.

I'm sorry if this is way off topic but I can't seem to find help elsewhere. I tried to contact the admin help but the email was kicked back. Is there something else besides email validations that I need to do before I can actually post in the forums? I would like to ask some questions in the Gear section about lenses and ports but it won't let me, :(

 

Please help!

The Titan Poker pop up is real and I've got it three times in the last week. It showed up today on a brand new clean version of windows 7 on a new hard drive. My protection software caught the link and referenced this;

The next time this happens to someone, can you please post the URL from which it happened? We can look for it.

Can people that see this post their operating system and browser? There is actually a virus going on that injects ads into your browser, but I think thats IE only.

Using IE9 on a new Windows 7 load. I've only seen it the 3 times I noted above and non in the last week.

Well, fresh Win7 means nothing. The average re-infection of an unpatched (fresh) Windows 7 is measured in minutes. Anyways, it could very well be something on wetpixel. A bad ad, or worse. But it could also be something totally different. Right now we just dont know.

Not sure if that' s the data you need to track down but HTH. I've now blocked from that address.

It only seems to happen when I come into Wetpixel from using a Google search. Got it again;

SNAP!

 

Yes I should have mentioned that was how my last pop-up occurred. Think my other event was just via bookmark.

 

Cheers,

Jim.

Me, too, i.e. not when I enter wetpixel directly through my bookmarks. Also it's only happening the first time I get in through Google. Dismissing the popup downloads a PDF which my antivirus program flags as infected. If I hit the "back" button and enter again through Google, I don't get the popup.

 

Opera 12.10, Windows XPSP3 (IIRC, also on my Win7SP1 computer, still Opera 12.10)
