Virus'

Recommended Posts

Having just signed up to AVSIM, was disappointed that some computer users still don't have adequate virus protection in what is fundamentally a computer based flight forum!!!Just downloaded a Seabee aircraft and a Cessna 172M from an "aussie" site ( I am an aussie and Jan 26th is Australia day)and 1. had my home page hijacked and 2. a virus. I do a live update weekly and was able to block the virus however not the home page hijack!!!It may be timely to place a reminder in all forums, e-mails etc etc that especially with a simulation site we are all responsible for what is on our systems and should take all necessary precautions. A bit like doing a safety check on your aircraft before every flight!!!
