I don't know to be honest as it wasn't me who reported the post, but they said that the link was labelled as risky by browser security applications such as SiteAdvisor, WOT etc..
There wasn't a link posted, I would not have opened that. It was a step by step procedure to cure the fault and ancilliary problems associated with the virus. It was simple and worked well so, if cleared by your board administrator, would be well worth publishing. With respect, was much simpler than going via bleepingcomputer.com, which I found complicated and McAffee was removing some of the downloads suggested by bleedingcomputer.com.
Well I don't know as I can't read it any more, sorry. It's gone from my view altogether. I PM'd har to tell him what to do. (Contact the forums Admin).Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 27/06/11 4:40:06 EDT PM

The link you posted is labelled dangerous by My Web of Trust (WOT).
XP Internet Security 2012 / XP Security Center 2012 / XP Antispyware 2012 / XP Antivirus 2012 / XP Security 2012 / XP Home Security 2012 all these are same spayware.
