Slyck connecting to Peer 1 Network

Postby sixruns » Fri Mar 18, 2005 2:39 pm

Since today, I've notice that when I come on to this site, it tries to connect to Peer 1 Network. This only started today or very recently.

Can someone explain whats going on?

Weird. Since few or no one else sees this then could it be spyware or pop up related?

Found an article about malware and took this extract from the bottom of the page

This is either useful or useless depending on the circumstances

Edit: what's your OS sixruns, if it's XP do you have SP2 installed :?:

Damn, if it had been previous to SP2 it could have been some hidden spyware VMX2.

What type of problem are you having?

Pop-ups ? (on and offline)
If your connecting to Slyck and then it's redirecting i'd still assume some sort of spyware. Let us know and i'll do some more digging :idea:

It's not redirecting because I have PeerGuardian and it blocks it. I see it in my Sygate logs and my PeerGuardian logs. Funny thing though, I dont see it anymore.
