hacked-xax?

At work we recently got new computers.

Ever since, any time I open up an e-mail notification from Xixax I'm automatically redirected and some program tries to download to my computer.

Yeah, unfortunately we've been plagued with a lot of spam accounts forcing us unable to approve new members due to some security issue.

Somtimes I work at another office, so when I'm there and want to check the site, it redirects me to a porn site...

I've been getting a virus-protection scan pop-up every time I click on a link to xixax, but only from certain computers. It works fine, though, if I just type in the address.

It's been happening for a while, but I never mentioned it 'cause I figured it was something with the comps at school.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Yeah, this is what it does (and seems to automatically try to download it), but only after we got the new computer at work.

The other computer at work was fine, and at home it doesn't do it either.

I checked with our tech support and there's what they had to say:


At work we recently got new computers.

Ever since, any time I open up an e-mail notification from Xixax I'm automatically redirected and some program tries to download to my computer.

whahappened?

I don't think this has anything to do with the recent security issue.  None of the e-mail notifications that I've gotten contain any hidden links to other sites and the settings in the admin panel looked fine to me when I checked.  Are any of you admins having a problem like this?

I think it has more to do with either a virus or something installed on that particular computer rather than something coming from this site or its email notifications...

.. and the fact that he's not seeing it on other computers at the same work site seems to be a confirmation.

Since work computers are property of the company, their IT department could have any number of blocks on both the computers or their network's access to the internet.  Even if one site with certain words is accessible at work, it doesn't mean that the next will be.  Someone might be tracking worker's internet usage and decided to block it because they didn't like it for whatever reason or because too much time was spent on a specific site instead of working. Or it could also have something to do with the triple x's in the URL that caused that message.

Somtimes I work at another office, so when I'm there and want to check the site, it redirects me to a porn site...

This too sounds like something that is going on with that particular computer.

Yep, checked with our techie and showed him what happened when I try to visit the site and he said it's the 'XiXaX' thing. It identifies as porn !  :bravo:

that's probably it then.

i guess the newer computers at work have a newer version of an internet blocker maybe?

For what it's worth, I work at a web design company, and have no problem accessing the site. But we have a pretty open policy as to what we can use/share/look at here.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

what's with random words from our posts suddenly becoming sponsored links? when did that happen?
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

Where's there an example of this?

edit: above this post in this thread, "office" (in the fernando quote) and also "school" at the end of perenium falcon's post.

Strange. Anyone else getting that, because I don't?

No. That is weird though and it sucks. At least we should get paid for that.
