    Spyware

    My computer is blocking all access to CF stating spyware, anyone else having this issue. It is claiming the spyware is called Spyware.exploit.misc.mu.cyclonefanatic.com. posting this from phone.

    Just wondering if its something on my end as I am clueless to this stuff.

    Re: Spyware

    I started getting this message when trying to access CF from work today.

    Barracuda Network Filter

    The link you are accessing has been blocked by the Barracuda Web Filter because it contains spyware. The name of the spyware is: Spyware.Exploit.Misc.MU.cyclonefanatic.com

    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: Spyware

    Thanks for the feedback guys. We've done some research over the last 24 hours and are 99.9999999999 percent sure there is no virus on this site. After doing some research, other sites around the web have had the same thing happen to them over the last 24 hours or so. We are not along. It appears that Barracuda has done this to some sites with a history of viruses, which we have. We have put a note into Barracuda and hope to have this cleared up asap.
