Quote:Thanks for the notification.I think I once caught a virus from an old Russian binocular that had been kept shut up in a fusty case for around 30 years!
Quote:I just refreshed my search list and the items are now gone, so eBay again caught them and removed them after about 30 minutes or so. But these scamsters are being persistent so I'm sure they will be back again soon.

Quote:Not a week ago my wife's eBay account was hacked and taken over for the purpose of buying cellphones with stolen Paypal accounts. Be careful out there!
Quote:Both items were just re-listed again, just as they were previously, except the new website that you get routed to is /127.0.0.1:2372/ which I have not looked up, but one of my anti-malware programs picked up on it right away.Just FYI...
"your signature is too long. Please use the back button to edit your signature" A scourge of equipment unpopular to most, but fun for me!

The call is coming... FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE!Seriously, that is the internal address for all computers.
Quote:My guess is that if an eBay listing is redirecting something to localhost, you do not want to make any online purchases until you have had several programs report back that you PC is clean or you have a professional look at it and do a thorough cleaning or you reinstall the OS on it.
