    So i've had SENuke for quite some time. I haven't used it in months.

    Well I used it 2 days ago, only used the Social Bookmarking Nuke

    While Running it one of the websites in the list downloaded one of those annoyingly hard to get rid of Fake Anti-Virus Viruses.

    Thankfully I was able to use system restore.

    Computer had been running fine for the past 2 days, haven't used SENuke.

    Ran SENuke again just now, using only the social bookmarking nuke....

    SURE ENOUGH... computer was infected again!

    This time it was harder to remove as it wiped all my restore points, thankfully I was a sys admin for years so I was able to manually remove it.

    So this is not Nocking SENuke... It's a great powerful tool... Just an FYI that one of the sites in the social Bookmarking Nuke is infecting my computer, and possible yours too?

    Am I the only on that has noticed this?

    Have you let the guys as SENuke Know?
    I'm sure they don't want this happening to their subscribers.
    Have you checked their forums for any other complaints?

    Or are you using one of the cracked versions?

    Run with SEnuke almost every day ... never had an issue like this, and ESET Smart Security has never even hinted at a problem.

    All the sites in the social bookmarking module are well known sites, I find it hard to belive any of those would do anything like that ever!

    nope, its only when i run the Social Bookmarking Nuke module. I know its not the computer, virus free prior to running it, and after cleaning the infection, I can use IE no problems. It's only when I run SENuke.

    No this is not a cracked version either.

    Damn, I never noticed it either, but I haven't created any accounts for like 2 weeks.

    If it were the profiles section I might think yes, but he says its only the Bookmarking section and they are all pretty well established companies. Pushing a virus on people would be a PR and legal nightmare for them.
