OT: Forum Banners

Recommended Posts

Eh I know this isn''t exactly related to Nehe''s site, but every time change pages on Gamedev I keep getting reports of a blocked IP: Connection Rejected: 208.185.101.168 - TRIBAL FUSION MFN-B562-208-185-101-160-27 (Banner/Spyware) (10-21-2003 @ 15:28:38) I''m not so concerned about the banner part ( which it clearly is, because the banner doesn''t show up anymore as long as I have this filter running) but I''m more concerned about the spyware part for other users. Of course it could be a false report on the spyware but you never know... *A scan of my system using Ad-aware finds a Tracking Cookie with the name of tribalfusion, so clearly the banner IS leaving traces on my HD. Not really that big of a deal (it''s just a cookie) but some security freaks might want to know.
