    MY Pc at work got infected with this today but I had 6 different websites open, Using google chrome, I got this message and found that I had it open with IE and that is why I am typing this message. It got past IE with no problem. I love Google Chrome and do not thing I am going to use IE anymore as it just sucks. It is slow, annoying and just never as quick or nice to use a Chrome. If your using IE....Sorry to say you are probably infected too :(



    Sucks to be on the attack guys, sorry to be the one to have to notify on this. Possible it is a false positive....NOT PROBABLE :(

    Re: Malware on NYCAviaion...... woops... too late

    Thanks for the heads up, Fred.

    Just to confirm, you are just receiving a warning, correct? You have not actually been infected?

    This is related to the attack we suffered a couple of weeks ago. While we removed all the offending code that we could, there is apparently still be some difficult-to-trace badness buried somewhere.

    From the best we can tell:

    a.) Nothing from NYCA is actually infecting anyone!

    b.) Occasionally, pages on NYCA (both the forums and the main site) are attempting to load a file from altunbilgisayar.com, but the altunbilgisayar site is down and nothing is actually being downloaded, which is good.

    c.) It seems Chrome and Firefox have recently added the altunbilgisayar.com url to their blacklists, so if nyca attempts to download a file from there, you'll see a warning, even if the load fails.

    d.) Obviously, we don't want our site attempting to download anything we didn't ask it to, even if it's not successful

    e.) Unfortunately we've been unable to track down the problem, up to now. Now that blacklists are involved this will be the toppest of top priorities. Thankfully, my schedule should allow more time for this to happen this week than the past couple of weeks.

    f.) We would never knowingly put you in danger. If we have to shut down the site for a few days to fix it, we will. But hopefully we won't have to.

    Re: Malware on NYCAviaion...... woops... too late

    pc at work was infected with a Trojan but the security found it and deleted it and gave me notification. When using Google chrome I CURRENTLY get a big red STOP page that the website is currently infected and that is the info I pasted above. I still get the same message this morning and will not attemp with IE as it let's me in with no issues. My security has not seen the infection or is not picking it up. Until Google says it is safe I will post from my IPhone.

    I would just like to clarify that it is not sure that what Derf encountered was caused by NYCAviation. We have no other indication that there is a threat to anyone by coming to the site. regardless, we are working to cleanse the entire site.

    Re: Malware on NYCAviaion...... woops... too late

    Actually, our IT at work said I had a trojan virus on my PC. Of the dozen in my office, only my personal PC was affected. This was found on ....last Firday 10/30. NO idea on whether or not its site related.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Re: Malware on NYCAviaion...... woops... too late

    Now the homepage is going to a different site...the same one that had given me the trojan a few days ago.
    IT notified me at work ad asked that I not visit the site. I told them off ten ways to China (on the inside).

    There was another attack today..... If you visited this site and you were unprotected I strongly recommend that you download these two programs to make sure you did not pick anything up.

    Re: Malware on NYCAviaion...... woops... too late

    You guys...if you go to the homepage and are redirected to that strange site, just don't click anything. The "warning" that it gives you is not a virus software, it's just the homepage to the bot site. You can't get infected if you don't click anything. Do people realize this? In the meantime, just come straight to the forums: www.nycaviation.com/forum

    Re: Malware on NYCAviaion...... woops... too late

    Mellyrose I am not trying to knock you down or anything but malware is designed to loads itself on to your computer without user consent, so you just have to visit a malware infected website to get it on your computer. This is why I stress having protection. Anyway I bet the NYCA team is working around the clock to get this issue sorted out.

    btw- Im not talking about www.nycaviation.com but malware in general.

    Re: Malware on NYCAviaion...... woops... too late

    I know you aren't trying to knock me down...what I meant though, is that some people are quoting the warning that the website is giving, as what their anti-virus is giving as a warning. If your virus software isn't showing something, I don't think you have reason to worry.

    And yes, I can vouch that the NYCAviation staff is working diligently to fix this problem...I live at NYCA HQ :)
