Pasting from my journal: "Okay, so everyone, I thought you should know about this...please read this and trust me, it's true.

There's this site that seems to pop up while you browse deviant, just out of nowhere, it says it's scanning your computer for viruses. How many of you have seen it? How many have had problems because of it?
I know at least four people who have gotten viruses, they all go on deviant, seems pretty strange considering dare2beme14 has been having problems with her computer since that popped up. At least one of the other people is positive her virus came from deviant and I haven't talked to anyone else about it. ~Random update that I'm adding after I typed this. I also know of another computer infected.~ We're not saying to boycott Deviant so don't flame this journal. I'm jsut warning everyone that it's somethign to be aware of and careful of. If you get the "scanning" screen then close it immediately. If you have good virus protection it probably won't be a problem but it's definitely something to watch out for.

~If the "Antivirus Protection" scanning screen comes up get the URL and close the window
~Report it to the moderators

What we know about the virus:
~It gets worse
~I can not be manually deleted
~They want you to buy their software
~It brings up...umm...innapropriate sites. That's all you need to know. You can figure it out from there.
~They come in the form of pop-ups. The sites get worse as they continue
~It will infect programs on your computer that are needed to shut down and do other normal functions
~The pop-ups make it nearly impossible to do anything

Comment with any questions you have! I will update this when I have more information. As of now I know of one case where leaving the computer sit for a 2+weeks made it work okay afterwards, but only after deleting the many infected things in the computer.

IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME. THEN JUST IGNORE THIS, K?"

There should be a spot that says "Submit art" or something of the sort towards the top of the page :)
