      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

Bloodhound.6

10 posts in this topic

Hi

 

I had this problem, i kept having to do the fix as well. I noticed it kept happening when i cclicked on an thread on the old message board. I did put a warning on the thread not to click on it as this bloodhound exploit kept happening. I wondered if was just a bug in norton??? all my updates were inplace, i did complete scan & system check and found nothing???

If you cannot find it, you need to do a "Highjack This". This runs all of your start up programs and allows you to see what is stored there. 75% of all spyware is taken care of under this program.

I ran hijack this and it did not show up anything, but then my anti virus quarantined it & i just deleted it from my system.

 

However there was a thread on the old board i put a warning on , because if i clicked on the link in the topic another member posted i got a warning from my antivirus program that this expolit was detected ?? I thought it odd that this link given by someone should keep triggering this exploit.

I got the same warning from Norton.

When I ran a check bloodhound didn't show up.

 

I then did a manual search and didn't find the file / app anywhere on my computer.

 

thyme ... you said you just deleted it from your system. How did you locate it ?

Hi preston

 

My norton put it straight into quarantine.

I had the settings set as try to repair & quarantine then if unsuccessful. (i have since changed that setting to deny access)

I went into quarantine & clicked on file it gave me option of deleting from system (which i chose, as it was isolated) or repair or submit file.

 

If you go into reports, then activity log , virus alerts, it tells you exactly where the infected file was found, and how norton tried to deal with.

thyme,

 

I've got nothing in my quarantine folder.

What I'm thinking happened is that Norton was issuing a warning that bloodhound was attempting to infect me.

I've got my security set so nothing gets installed without my letting it.

So this was an unsuccessful attempt.

 

Does that sound plausible ?

 

I've had the same thing happen with another trojan, and again ... I got a warning from Norton but it never actually got into my computer.

Hi preston

 

yes sounds plausible, your settings prob set to deny access so wouldnt even hit quarantine. If you look in your activity log, then virus alerts it will prob say access denied & name of virus etc

ok, there it is ...

 

Repair failed / access denied.

 

I think I'll just set my Auto-Protect option to deny access.

I don't really see any reason to attempt to repair it or quarantine it.
