    second time in the last 2 days an antivirus prevented downloading a virus when priuschat webside was accessed.
    2 different SP3 XP PCs with firefox, bur different AV software and all security measures up to date.
    the latest problem is logged by symantec as ms0cfg32.exe saved in temp folder.
    I didn't record the previous warning by AVG.

    I posted 2 screenshots from 3 virus encounters at Priuschat in the virus screenshot thread.
    Is anyone going to clean the Priuschat from viruses?

    Me either. Not being smug - just another suggestion that maybe it's your computer, Jacek.

    The problem continues.
    Every time I visit Priuschat i get several Symantec warnings. Now, I have 4 after short time on Priuschat and they are very similar.

    XXXXXXXX is variable numbers.

    I'm saved by Symantec, right?

    That's just a Symantec generic name for a malicious Java file, or what may be a malicious file. It may be a perfectly fine Java file, or it could be bad; you can't really tell. If your system is up to date, you would be okay even without Symantec. If it's not really a bad file you would be okay as well.

    It's hard to say whether Symantec saved you or not.
