The other day one of our members accounts got stolen and the hacker tried using his account to promote a hack that was posted in the SC2 section. It was a new member's post and everything listed was clearly impossible to do. Then he (stolden user account) comes into the chat and starts trying to say the hack is legit, but then starts saying "WTF WHY DID I SAY THAT HACK WORKS? SOMEONE HACKED MY ACCOUNT". Makes me worry even trusted users could be used to spread viruses.
Be sure to scan everything you download to be safe.
My antivirus is paranoid, it sandboxes unrecognized programs. Sometimes annoying to deal with but better safe than sorry right? I have had to pass on several programs that I wanted simply because my anti-virus would not allow it.Such as JassNewGen editor.It kept taking key files from the folder whenever I tried to start it up even when I flagged the files as safe, just tossed them into quarantine. Any new files are scanned immediately after they get added and if they have a virus or malware it gets tossed into quarantine. If you are wondering what anti-virus I have, I have Comodo.The firewall is kick-ass. It is nice not having to worry about the viruses or malware though.
