    My anti-virus Kaspersky says that the FileTrip.net is used to steal passwords, phone numbers, credit card or other sensitive data. We rely on FileTrip or is it just a bug?

    Heh, double post while apologising about the double thread [​IMG]

    I wouldn't have thought FileTrip has any problems...why would it steal credit card numbers? (Unless Costello isn't telling us something [​IMG] [​IMG])

    Don't worry its not like they are going to kill you. Most they could do to harm you is steel passwords, phone numbers, credit card

    I'm guessing it isn't anything much, just maybe some bad links or something. But I wouldn't know.

    it doesn't do any of those things [​IMG] Filetrip is an advanced version of the GBAtemp download center which has been running for ages.
    do you get that on every page?

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, you didn't know nothing. [​IMG]

    I think this guy has a virus on his PC and it's messing with his AV.

    Lets put it this way?
    No one else appears to have got this 'Virus' Message, correct?
    It is obviously not FileTrip?
    Hey, i dont REALLY like FileTrip, but ill defend it XD
    What i believe it might be, is you have obtained a virus/malware/spyware or something along those lines, and it has placed itself in your temp net files on your cookies or something, and it just so happens to be in the Filetrip one, It'll be interesting to see if you clear your cookies and history and see if it resolves the problem, alos , keep off the pr0n XD
