    how do you pick up a virus from a website?

    Try using Chrome instead?

    yes I agree FD , though to be fair I am not 100% sure it was from ST, but quite likely imo, and with you raising the issue I think I can assume it was ST now.

    CJ , websites can transmit virii, no question.

    Chrome is likely a virus itself knowing Google ;+)

    FD & peat maybe it is a website that a link has been posted to on sharetrader. I do not follow links from one website to another. I have had no problems

    I am now more certain than I was before that sharetrader is either the source or the vector for malware attacks.


    PTC - note that the absence of problems is not a useful indicator in this situation

    I use a mac so no probs with attacks ---anti-virus companies only care about windows users(aka they make most of the virus it's good for business)
