Warning for those doing status updates via URL
« on: December 12, 2012, 08:02:53 PM »
Hi everyone,

I just experienced a sh*tstorm of a headache. I think my wife or daughter got into my computer that I use for webpage making, javascripting, PS, etc.

I went to view my website today to see how the Status Updates were working. When I got there I noticed the site had adds all over it, Blinds and Cash had hyperlinks to adds.

I found that they downloaded something that injects this code into your HTML. It's called Yontoo. You need to uninstall it, and also kill it from your browser. I use chrome, so it was in the tools, extensions.

I hope this helps the people that do status updates to url.
