SBS Le Tour site not working tonight ???

Postby Nitram » Sun Jul 17, 2011 9:55 pm

I've got no TV here and have been following the Tour with SBS on-line streaming on the computer which has been pretty good. But tonight this warning comes up saying it's been blocked because of some virus scare. Is it just my computer, or more widespread ?

I got a virus scare a couple of hours ago when connecting.
Though all seems fine now.

I run these two links concurrently.

The virus problem has been popping up on the fantasy website for the last couple of days. You can still proceed to the website if you want to - it's just that "you have been warned". Reading the Google safe site page that I get directed to has never shown any active problems - apparently there are status updates on SBSs Facebook site - but I don't facebook so wouldn't know what the latest was.

I had something similar occur on my Win XP system while trying to use the sbs tdf web-site; Internet Explorer then just started crashing with no error report when re-trying. Had not been using any other unusual web-sites - just the sbs and smh.

I discovered my virus checker (AVG) had been disabled. Spent a fair part of today cleaning out a trojan/virus that runs Pro-shield Online and presents a large volume of fake alerts. No idea how the trojan/virus evaded my normal virus checker (AVG). Had to boot into safe mode and hack the registry to kill it as could not start my virus checkers.

The cycling tracker was working fine on my android phone.

Ohh thats nice so it wasnt just me then :roll: I had been on a couple of sites but definitely the SBS Fantasy site was on of those. Same thing got rid of AVG and Pro shield came up.
