    I was reading a few things and found that there's a php virus that attacks the sites that use it. I'll bet the owner of the site doesn't have a clue that it's even infected.

    I know it's infected for sure. It throws the virus files into my windows\application_data\sun directory. My virus software cleans the virus software out (java_byte) and then I go back and click on the site and it throws the same files right back in the same directory on my drive.

    I'm going to check into the Mozilla update and see if they've closed that hole.

    Is this what your getting?

    If so, as long as Windows is up to date with security updates I dont think you have to worry about that, the security hole that virus exploits will be closed

    After updating my old version of Firefox to the new 1.01 when I click on the infected website a dialog box comes up and says:
    The connection was refused when attempting to contact http://www.qksrv.net. That's wierd.

    On Mozilla website, there are numerous security issues involved with the older versions. Any of you using older versions should go there to update.
