Beat the Trolls!

A dear blogging friend Judy has been having problems. Her blog Imagine has been attacked by malware and she has been unable to obliterate the problem. She had now gone back to her original blog Just ask Judy. This is a rotten thing to happen to anyone but outrageous to someone of Judy's standing. Please show your support and solidarity by visiting her. Just click on Judy

It's insidious. One has to be careful these days.

Cheers.

I think it is horrific! But, I'm glad she still had JUST ASK JUDY and has gone back to it....I saw her comment on 'Arkansas Patti' and that's how I knew what had happened.....

As to your comment---I would love to know how you will managa "following"....Do let me know. Maybe it is something I can do, too...!

I got a message as I went to another blog, that the blog 'contains content' from a site that's know to distribute malware. Yet the anti-virus thingie I have says that the site is safe. Oh man, I'm confused.

Pat said...

Randall: I think it helps to have a good anti- virus protection.

Naomi: I believe I just put the URL in 'Friends you would like to follow' on Dashboard. It worked with Judy. I'll let you know.

GG: my anti- virus seemed to work but Judy lost a lot of her normal commenters.

It's happened to me twice recently, but now I've switched to a Linux operating system which is not so suseptible to viruses etc.

What sort of sick person gets pleasure out of ruining other peoples pleasure on the internet?

P.S. I'm still keeping a weather eye on Waterstones autobiography shelves for a certain book. No luck as yet!

Pat said...

Keith: at least you know what you are doing. Some of us are babes in the wood.
I am working on the book shelves but patience is the name of the game.

I'm now following Judy's old blog too. I got the message every time I went on her blog too.

Does make you feel that you ought to have a back up option if things go wrong!

Deep sympathy with anyone whose blog is attacked in any way. Rushed off to express same + solidarity with Judy; but sadly the linky doesn't appear to work.

Pat said...

Minnie: sorry - my fault. the first Judy works but not the second - goodness knows why.

LL Cool Joe: I put my faith in Norton. so far so good. The stuff for my book is backed up and copied ad nauseum.
