    Warning about website virus

    I just thought I would warn you all about something that happened last week to me while I was looking at the official Kubinka tank museum website my antivirus intercepted two virus's trying to infect my computer from that site and luckly destroyed them its the first time my antivirus has had to do anything like that and made me jump a bit .

    Just a quick side note to go along with this thread..

    We will never force you to download anything to view this website so if whilst browsing you are prompted to download anything - please cancel the download and alert either myself or spotter. (unless of course, its an intentional attachment on a post).

    Additionally we will never send you emails from this site requesting your login details so if ever you receive an email that appears to be from us asking for you to supply what should be confidential information.. then again - delete it and alert either myself of spotter.

    Additionally additionally.. I'd like to second Waff's recommendation of the AVG Free Antivirus software. I have found it to be an exceptional product and highly recommend it, It works well at its job protecting you from the nastys out there but is also not as invasive to your machine as some AV products out there can be, by this I mean that some of the other products out there tinker with your computer so much they cause more trouble than they are worth.
