Photobucket problem...!?!?!
« on: August 15, 2012, 09:02:00 PM »

I was uploading some pics today onto photobucket and then got a virus attack on my pc, this also happened about 2 years ago at work.

Anyone else had this occur?

I noticed this morning at work windows update had about 14 updates, wonder if they knew something was going on...

Not a single problem with viruses here, though this might have something to do with it...

Test pic from my photobucket

Some odd things going on with photobucket....
I was looking on another forum earlier and some of the linked pics from photobucket were showing as broken links, but not all

I've just been looking into this and it may be a Java problem, it may be worth going to Java.com and checking whether you have the correct version installed....

%) ......... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/apple/9355995/Apple-drops-virus-immunity-claim-for-Macs.html ... {-)

Still not entirely untrue, Macs aren't susceptible to many thousands of PC viruses, had my laptop for 6 years now, no anti-virus, and never had a problem despite being on the internet 99% of the time I'm using...

Not been having any problems with photobucket here, so doesn't seem to be something affecting all users.

There have been the usual monthly PC Microsoft updates, which included an I.E. one, as well as new Java one around. This combination possibly may be the problem that's affecting Photobucket on his browser, just an idea.  :-)
