    Is it just me or are you guys getting this too? In all of the texts on this site there are random words that are underlined and green. When you scroll over them an add pops up. Just me or is this some new advertising that NWFA is doing?

    Yup, your browser has a virus... It has attached it self and turns everything into ads. I had to uninstall and reinstall when it happened to me.

    Nothing like a false sense of security. ;)

    Trojan Virus targets Mac OS


    EDIT: I know in general Mac's are more secure, but the hacker/virus community is learning people are lead to assume a Mac computer is a secure computer, so they are prime for MalWare. More and more they are exploiting that. Running any machine with out some form of MalWare/Virus software is idiotic. There are multiple solutions out there for FREE that work extremely well. I am a minor Apple hater, but I am not going to knock someone for a choice they've made.
