Evening, was trying to replicate an issue my wife ran into whilst looking at pictures of George Clooney (bless her LOL).
Clicked on the photo in an attempt to see the pop up(s) she got and Firefox appeared to get hijacked. Tried to ALT/F4 my way out of the pop up but did not work, eventually used the Task Manager to close Firefox.
Only managed to catch one screen shot - which I'm trying to attach but also wanted to try and discover what this nasty little creature was/is. Tried running the address through Site Advisor and also doin some generic searches via Google and these forums but did come up with anything.
I'm running Vista Home Basic on an eMachine and was running Firefox. Also (once everything was closed) ran a Malwarebytes scan as well as a full scan with my Avira with nothing being detected or remarked.
So, a couple of questions; does any have any information about this pesky website? (www)1.defast-protection.in
Malwarebytes & Avira (and all the Windows Updates) - does that seem to be enough, or are there other apps that are recommended?
Photobucket removed my cool flag - idiots!
Every calculation based on experience elsewhere fails in New Mexico.
