To discuss anything which relates to the FLYER Airportal or the magazine
I am having issues logging on to view a newsfeed story.
Firefox is flagging this as an attack site (pick on facebook flyer page)
PPL (A) + Night + Complex + (IMC & MEP in progress)
I am now an official iPad Forum user.
Google Chrome flagging this URL up
I don't know why this is but the flyer.co.uk server is getting infected rather often.
One wonders how many peoples' PC end up with trojans installed as a result.
I know attackers like to attack sites that use the standard off the shelf forum/blog software but e.g. Pprune doesn't seem to have been hit successfully for a very long time and that is off the shelf too.
The last Flyer infection I had a look at used the advertising feeds. I now have them blocked in Firefox.
The last one had nothing to do with the advertising. We believe it was a targeted attack, we have fixed it and we're working on the whole security question.
If the malicious eejits doing this can hack (for example) the Pentagon and police computers, what chance has the Flyer site got if they choose to go after it?
The fact that most people's PCs warned them that there was some "package" on the website is enough evidence that every PC should have decent security and protection software. There's plenty of good, capable free stuff out there.
None of which applies to iPads and their ilk, which are invulnerable.
