Default Hybris Virus attacks to MSN communities

Has anyone here encountered a SCAN ATTACK on your computer by the Hybris virus? I was having erratic action on my computer and having failures, I bought the McAfee Virus program and Firewall. I found out that my PC was infected with Hybris Virus what ever that is. On the discription it is obtained from News groups or communities like Bikerforums but only reasentlly reported on the MSN communities. After installing firewall and ridding my self of the Virus, while visiting the MSN communities my fire wall reports several SCAN ATTACKS by the Hybris virus every 10 minutes, from those communities. Never happened before and is not happening on this site but thought you fellow bikers might want to know about this kinda trouble. You may want to invest into a Anti-Virus program and a Firewall. McAfee is about $20.00 after rebate. For me it is worth less chrome on my ride for this kinda of Condum.

just as an fyi to that:

bikerforums.org is hosted by Banjaku, Inc. a Info Security firm and secure web hosting company. You'll never get any 'security crap' from us, we're clean (that's what the dr.'s said), and banjaku runs a very tight ship. So put your minds to ease, this site will remain fast, clean from security breaches or virii, and contain good info.

Later.

Default VIRUS NOTE

Greetings from South Alabama

Lucky so far here, I have Norton Intenet security program in mine,and so far no problems, but program indicater let me know if someone is trying to attack the files, but the norton program stops it and deletes it, I am not aware of it, indicator tells me I can read about it etc if I want to, Had just the anti virus program before but you cannot beat the programs you and I have for better safety of our puters.

Thanks for the info,

It is sooooo true, ya always meet the nicest folks on a motorcycle, lol, guess we are indeed a "special breed"
