.wmf virus on this forum

Recommended Posts

On my home PC, when visiting this site, avast antivirus picks up a .wmf virus file. On deleting this file, IE crashes so I am unable to view this forum.

Any others experienced the same problem ?

I wonder if I picked up this from here too yesterday .... runing NOD32 anti virus.... after this event I immediately restored a backup image.

Thankyou for the report

Please take a look at this thread. If the browser is still trying to download a WMF, it may be from cache. Hit CTRL-F5 or equivalent to refresh.

It killed my laptop that had all but MS's Tuesday patches and PC-Cillian antivirus and I had to restore a ghost backup. It also bluescreened my main box that had all but MS's Tuesday patches but no AV. See my post in the thread Sivar linked to for more details.
