Do Scrapebox and Senuke give your computer viruses?

    Recently, my computer keeps getting some bad viruses. To make things worse, some of them have found their way onto my websites.

    The only things I download are from BHW and all my Firefox downloads go through a virus scan. I have a real time virus scan and malware scan running at all times.

    I'm curious if the reason that I am getting viruses is because of Senuke and Scrapebox. After all, they visit tons of sites and they could be potentially dangerous sites. Is this the reason? Any solutions?

    No but the hacker that attaches malware to torrents and porn sites could be the cause of your recent attacks. Recommend running an up to date anti-malware package and that you install malware bytes on your machine. Also, use a sandbox with unknown programs and keygens.

    There is a risk of getting hit, yes...
    I've never had anything actually infect my machine tho..

    I've had several cases where my anti-virus has squashed various site access and/or page content when using SB - can't remember exactly what I was doing, but I think when checking after posting or blog analyser.

    Just ensure you've got decent AV software and you're fine.

    Are you referring for our websites or our computers? Do most of the standard AV software have anti-malware built in?
