    Malware Attack

    Well I'm using MalwareBytes and AVG with Outpost Firewall. Now hear there is possible malware attack coming this Monday. When I googled it there are many places to check but would rather get info here. Hope this is right place to post this inquiry.

    Thank you, did the DNS check and all was green for go. That was part of my problem was there was Norton and McCaffee that were also offering stuff and I don't want either one near my PC.

    This whole issue is overblown by the media predicting disaster come Monday. I've yet to run across anyone who failed the website check mentioned by RG. And if you do happen to be infected, it can be cleaned easily by using Malwarebytes and/or any reputable Antivirus app.
