Today
at school, I was just googling some stuff, clicked on a google search
result, and it redirected me to a
filestore72.info/download=idxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (don't know exact link/dl
id).



I went back, and reclicked on the same link, and it brought me to the actual website this time.



I did a quick google, didn't find much but apparently it's a vBulletin exploit, and someone said it silently installs a trojan.



I got this a few months ago at home as well, and I just reformatted
to be safe, but this time it was at school, can't simply reformat. I go
to a pretty bleepty High school, not sure how good security is, do you
think I should be worried that the network got infected or something,
and I get in trouble?



Also, lately my home network has been pretty slow at random times,
could my previous encounter with this redirect be related? (Even though I
reformatted, maybe it spread to another computer in my house, then
after i reformmatted, it came bck to this comp? lolol)

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Same machine yes, but I have reformatted since I posted this topic. My only concern would be for the school network. Was wondering if anyone has heard of the filestore72 thing.
