For the last few times I have gone to visit Photobucket, I have gotten a warning message from Avast telling me that there is malicious spyware on the sight that is going to steal my identity. Is anyone else getting his message? Is it a problem with Photobucket, or with my computer?

I so far haven't gotten a message like that... And usually DH will tell me if something is wrong with a site since he was an IT tech...

I haven't had an issue with it, BUT there are a few crappy malware things floating around that I have gotten off good sites, like CNN, and I had a work PC this week get it just off a google search that I had to rebuild because it was so far gone. While our antivirus is up to date it was brand spankin new so it didn't clean it properly.

I would say as long as your antivirus is catching it and dealing with it you should be ok. Just make sure your antivirus software is up to date with its patches.

Does it say the name of the virus/malware?

Hmm...that doesn't sound good, ladies. Guess I'll have to have my DH check it out later (I'm lost with this stuff).

Sometimes I've seen the ads that have the spyware/malware. I know that 4shared had one on their front page not too long ago. I use Firefox and have the AdBlock Plus add on so I don't have to worry about any of those viruses. I LOVE Firefox!
