MeFi is showing me a "surprise her... with a bigger penis" ad. She looks pretty surprised, but not as surprised as me.

Can we not do this? I realise this is not on the level of Scientology or Suicide Girls in terms of potential offense, but this sort of stuff is a) bullshit, b) bogus, c) not a nice message to deliver to boy MeFites.

That sounds like an automated Google Ad. Can you remember what the URL was on the ad? Then I can block it and it won't show up again.

Matt, it's being displayed in the Federated Media ad block div at the top of the sidebar, so I don't think it's spyware. And yeah, I'm logged in. There are about six of these ads and they all point to naturomax [dot] com.

Thanks!

Argh. So I should have titled this post "If Dell will only sell you the laptop you want with Vista, which blows, and you get infected with malwear and start seeing penis enlargement ads on MetaFilter, you may be a complete moron like me."

Matt, I'm so sorry I wasted your time making you sift through the FM ads. I really was fooled by it appearing in exactly the right size in exactly the right spot, inside the FM ad code.

If you want to see the surprised lady, there's a bad screencap here. She's less surprised but probably brighter than me.

Doh.

PS: If you're seeing that ad on MeFi, congrats, you have Internet Clap! I'm so bummed; I don't even get too look at porn these days. I feel totally jipped.

"Oh. Jokes." and showed him.

dirigibleman, I have no idea. I handed this laptop to my 'nix-loving husband and went to load the dishwasher. When I came back, there was a screen on the laptop progressing something, at which he was staring intently.

I said, "Honey, you know that watching it doesn't do anything, right? It doesn't change the outcome of the virus scan or anything?"

He just glared at me and said, very grumpily, "This shit does not go down in my house" and went back to watching it as if it were television.

I think it was AdAware followed by HijackThis. I'll ask him to post but he's probably too humiliated by his clap-ridden spouse to cop to being married to me in this thread.

Judging from the look on the woman's face in the advertisement you could achieve basically the same effect by first striking your girlfriend a glancing blow to the side of the head and then pulling out your totally unchanged and perfectly average penis.

That ad is really, uh, something:

You see, a woman who is old enough to know how to give a man extremely good sex plus has a tight, moist, young-looking vagina, has an enormous advantage over every other woman.

I guess that having a product for every insecurity is proof that capitalism works. I would worry, though, about whether the "virgin cream" residue will counteract your partner's surprise big penis and cause him to shrivel up like a raisin.

I would be darlingbri's aforementioned spouse.

Somehow (the laptop in question has, I think, fired up IE exactly twice in its life, both times to check CSS rendering on sites being developed) it was using a bogus DNS server despite none of the network settings on the machine being misconfigured.

A manual trawl of the registry looking for said name server's IP address turned up about eight references, which disabled the hijack for just about long enough to successfully download updates for the newly-downloaded Ad-Aware and for AVG.

Ad-Aware got nothing, except for its usual BS about advert cookies.

HijackThis identified all the dodgy registry entries (which had already returned five minutes later) and turned up a .tmp file being executed as a startup service. I highlighted all these and nuked 'em, taking the opportunity to also remove a bunch of iTunes/Quicktime and Real.com crapware which I had previously given up on as unditchable.

Reboot, and we're done. It would have been quicker but for Ad-Aware's utter uselessness - it took two attempts to run a scan without crashing the OS, and then found nothing anyway.

XP, for all its faults, was never this bad. The laptop, spec-wise, beats the crap out of almost everything else in the house, but because it had fucking Vista preloaded it runs slower than anything else we have by a factor of three. [Seriously, it takes over a minute to open a 1Mb zip file despite having 2G of memory and a dual-core processor. What did they write this crap with? GWBasic?]

And in all the time I've known my missus this is the first time anything's ever caught anything - it's not like she's the clicky-download-shiny type. On the other hand Vista makes one click 'Continue' on a black screen dozens of times every day - you'd practically have to be Spock to maintain the mental discipline to not tune them out after a while.

Um, anyway. An incredibly subtle attack, this one. It doesn't pile up the popups, just flips out some existing ad scripts with DNS redirections.

And Matt, you're including the JS which renders the sidebar button ad, and a FM tracking pixel, even for logged-in users. (It just doesn't show an ad for us usually.) What's up with that anyway?
