Just to let all my friends at MyLot know, my McAfee security suite caught a J/S Exploit Trojan on Egold-World, and Egold-World forums when I went to sign on last week. It was frustrating because I was referred to that site by someone here on MyLot. I know that they did not do that on purpose, but I wanted to let everybody know before you went to the site and picked up the Trojan. I hope someone can get it cleaned up before it spreads to many others. Apparently this Trojan will automatically download other Trojans from another site, and then use them to gather personal information from you. I am not sure if it is for Spyware reasons, or simpily to count keystrokes, but it looks like a bad one. Make sure you have your security software on before signing on to Egold-World. Good luck you guys.

Hi, will definately take head to your warning. also if you get one that your computer can't remove best thing to do is to look at the name of the trojan which is usually given by your virus protection even if it can't remove it then go to start, run, type in regedit, and remove it from there, that should solve the problem and also will save a bomb in call out fees from these guys taht will rip you off.
