Hey ya'll,

The kids go on Myspace alot... Recently, I noticed one of them was opening and closing the browser repeatedly, and said "Why won't this stupid thing work?!!!". LOL... Below is a screenshot...
When you get time, I would appreciate it if you could look this over... :thumbsup:
Thanks

Hello,

There's nothing malware related in your log.
The problem is MySpace itself.
MySpace is unsafe and that's why most scanners block certain contents of MySpace.

You may also want to read these blogs:
MySpace malware -- for the unpatched
Hacked Ad Seen on MySpace Served Spyware to a Million
MySpace users hit by hacker virus

Other reasons why not using MySpace.com:

1. It contains suggestive and pornographic images
2. It allows for the easy posting of way too much personal information
3. It is a context for dating and personal ads
4. It can be and has been used to exploit children and teenagers.

So if you want to keep your system clean, do not use MySpace. :thumbsup:

Thank you miekiemoes,

Your time is appreciated, and I will use the information you provided, hopefully it will give enough weight to be rid of Myspace altogether. This has been an ongoing conflict since it was first found by our children. Everyone here thinks I'm just paranoid about the malware/crapware out there. "Why do we have to have all these scanning things?", "This slows down everything, and it won't let me go to this page!"...etc

The kids are NOT allowed on my computer, so NO Myspace here! But, unfortunately the wife is not as convinced as I am about the dangers of Myspace.

Hopefully, this will be resolved soon, as I have blocked both kids off their computer, demanding ALL user names and passwords for any and every site they are registered with. We will look at ALL of these before they will be allowed to revisit any of them. "Day late and a dollar short?"....maybe.

Anyway...thanks again for your time...

Hi,

Well, what you can do is block the site MySpace. It's explained here with images how to do this:
http://www.theparentsedge.com/Block_Myspace.html

You really should convince your wife as well. Let her read the links I posted in my previous reply.

No, you're not paranoid.
Trust me, many logs are being posted here after a visit to my space, because they got infected. (this happens mainly when no Antivirus, antispyware and Firewall is present + Windows unpatched)

I will show her these articles, you can bet! And will be looking for more like it!

What I have learned here is invaluable. NEVER will I have another computer without all the security in place.

They hate it....but that's tough. :thumbsup:

Yes, Security is really needed nowadays. You can't compare it anymore with a couple of years ago. Malware is lurking EVERYWHERE nowadays. :thumbsup:
