Tom Gibson's site...

Recommended Posts

is afflicted with a malware and I thought a warning of some sort was in order for those without anti-virus protection .I think it is anyway,unless it's something in my computer which only wakes up at the thought of Tom's site!Andy.

Andy, what AV software are you using? Either other folks are seeing cached pages, their AV is not catching it or ours is catching an erroneous bit of data.Dave

Hi,Someone managed to upload a couple of .js files into my main folder; I've deleted them. I've also uploaded fresh versions of my index page and style sheet. I hope that was the extent of the problem. Let me know if you still have any warnings.BTW, a note to me would have been welcome.Take care,--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

Tom, my apologies for not e-mailing you first but avast said to abort the connection and so I didn't scroll down to the e-mail bit in case something went awry on the way there.I'm going to try the site again and see what happens.All gone this time.My apologies again,Andy.ps.What are .js files and are they always malware?

Tom,are you on a Microsoft server? How about moving over to an ISP with a Linux Box? Anyway, your ISP has severe security problems if .js files can end up in YOUR login, surely you can't accept that! It's sad if your good-intention-site is the cause of peoples damaged systems due to evil hackers and lack of security precautions at your ISP.Eagle(Web-developer)

So, those of you that indicated no problem shortly after Andy announced the issue (and I confirmed it) might want to take a look at your anti-virus situation. You may not be as protected as you thought. Just a word of caution.Andy mentioned he was using Avast. I am also. I highly recommend it.Tom, glad to see you found the issue.-DC

Hey Tom and all,I've been meaning to bring this to your attention. All of a sudden several months ago, I started getting a good 30 second delay opening your site. I love the classics and go there pretty often. I just checked it again. It took 32 seconds to open. I'm not complaining. Your site is well worth the wait. Just wanted you to know.... and I'm a little curious why it does that and why all of a sudden....Oh well, thanks fopr the great site and for all those fantastic classics. I wish I had the smarts to enable me to come up with a 40s to 60 something era simulator. Much like the Golden Wings except for a little later period. Looks like you aren't far from it with all those great sceneries.Tom Thanks!Earl

Maybe twice a week(it seems like anyway) I get a notification that the software for Avast has been updated! and it should be borne in mind this is freeware. At the moment there are a variety of offensive thingies locked up in the vault, and long may they stay there. This one incident shows that Avast is well worth checking out. It comes from www.alwilsoftware.comAndy.

Hi,It's probably because I have so many pictures currently on the main page (I hope!). I need to remove most of the old ones so it loads faster.Thanks,
