No, it's still here.
I am furious that Aquarium Advice has known about this trojan for MONTHS now and STILL has not fixed the ****ed thing.
I moved this month, so have not been to AA for awhile. Today I logged back on, and POOF....I have a trojan downloader ("agent downloader") on my system. I googled and consulted tech support and was advised that I will now have to spend days of my time reinstalling my operating system and getting all my updates and settings back up to date, because my antivirus program (a well-known, popular AV) can't do a ****ed thing about this trojan. I also at this point am unable to reinstall using system disks, because the trojan shut down settings that are needed to boot from disk. This is going to be a messy and lengthy and possibly expensive fix. Thanks a lot, AA.
I am ANGRY. People run forums all over the internet. When you find out that your site is harming people's computers, you do something about it. This has been a problem now for MONTHS. At a certain point, you scrap the website and start over from scratch if you have to. That is the responsible thing to do, rather than relying on half-fixes and continuing to put people at risk.
I will not be back to this site, even though it is full of the some of the most wonderful people and fish lovers I have found online. I am angry that you have done this to my computer, and that you have separated me from a site I love.
For their sake, I hope you do something about this, finally. In the meantime, I will spread the word among my fishy friends NOT to visit AA, if they care about their computers.
