Someone has put hotlinks in my post in Hobbit Board Can't Post

http://newboards.theonering.net/...=forum_view_expanded;

There are 2 of them. The first one takes you to some ad... but I did not put those links in there and worry they may have nasty intestions. Could someone please remove those links? THANKS LOTS *mini panic mode*

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

I think this has happened before and it might be a virus on your computer, gramma [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not sure I'll be able to come up with good search parameters to find old posts on Feedback. But I'm sure someone who knows will be by to help shortly.

I found one post asking about this and it's yours, gramma! [In reply to] Can't Post

http://newboards.theonering.net/...i?post=254863#254863

responses to your plea for help included:

GAndyalf : If I had to guess... I'd say that gramma's Mum's comp has adware on it. I'd recommend a good spybot to wipe that stuff out.

Kangi Ska : It could also be viral.Microsoft Security Essentials is a great antiivirus/antispyware. It is free from Microsoft and works with XP , Vista or Win 7.

Silverlode : Yep. Sounds like adware or virus to me. Running an anti-virus/spyware program should get rid of it. Could be worse - at least it's not the one that automatically inserts a porn link into every open URL box. We've had that one show up here a couple times

I agree [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't see any links in either gramma's or Daniel's posts. If gramma is the only one seeing them, it's almost certainly something happening on her end.

gramma, do a good virus scan and don't click on any of the links!
