Question Viruses on DailyMotion's Web Site

Has anyone else gotten or seen computer viruese on DailyMotion's website? Two or maybe three of my videos got infected. I don't think I will be doing much with them anymore. The ones on their main page are of the most concern for viruese.

They've also added adware on my page with them. That's not cool.

I hope you've got more protection than browser protection.
And that you scanned your system.
Thanks for the warning.

Yes, I have antivirus and adware software. The antivirus found at least four infected files and removed them. It may have hacked into my DailyMotion account settings, by sending a ton of spam mail today to the email address I use with DailyMotion.com

I hope DailyMotion.com sees this and works with their web hosting company to remove the malware.

It could be a false positive.

I won't even put my Mac on that website now because even though the Mac may not get effected, the virus may spread to my PCs on my network, since my Mac is networked to my PCs.

If Avira red flagged it, and my copy did, it's not safe.

I just had to call HP to cancel a $1,700 order a hacker placed hacking my DailyMotion account.

Anyone else want to take chances?
