I was viewing my watchlist on Ebay, when the whole page was replaced by a page saying I had 11 viruses in My Docs, 3 viruses in Files and 11 on my hard-drive. The options to "remove" or "cancel" resulted in "You have chosen to open Best Antivirus 2011"...which meant I had now downloaded it! I scanned the computer with my antivirus program and sure enough, IT found 3 threats...each being "Best Anti Virus 2011". I have repeated scan/removal 5 times, but it is re-embedding itself each time. SO MUCH FOR FIREFOX SECURITY! YOU have been hacked!

Thank you Xircal...it certainly IS "scareware! They didn't ask for a fee though...and as stated earlier, at least 12 Files (including Firefox) had been "modified" at the exact time of the infiltration.

@Xircal: you are correct but a bit wrong , since Miss.dreamer security was not up to mark virus had entered as i already mention they aren't all virus but a hacking tool. yeah the thing is that Kaspersky IS , Avast IS , Norton IS all failed to detect a Viruse because it isn't virus hehehhehehe :p , url auto-dialer (hacking tool) is well detected by spyware scanner (there are many spyware remover but for this case i recommended Miss. dreamer to opt for a best PC cleanning tool Advance system care pro 3 ). hey dude thx for that line to site its nice i am reading it
