Newgrounds has Virus's? 2009-06-14 17:41:00


Yesterday, I wanted to show one of my friends Stampers part of the Street Fighter Collab.
We were at school, and I'd forgot my laptop at home. The school computers had blocked NG, and it would fuck up if I tried to proxy my way in here.

Anyways, I asked him if I could borrow his laptop to show him the flash, but he stopped me:
*My friend*: "Newgrounds? That place has got virus's! It fucked up my last laptop!"
*Me*: "That's funny.. never happened to me - yet"

So, I'm asking you guys: has Newgrounds really got virus's? Is my computer already that fucked up that I don't even notice?

Thanks.

I've been here for 5 years I've never got a virus, just don't download things from people you don't trust though PMs and such.

The only viruses on Newgrounds are the ones from spammer's flashes from under judgement

Well your *friend* is wrong because newgrounds has no viruses

Response to Newgrounds has Virus's? 2009-06-14 17:56:04


You get viruses on Newgrounds the same way you get viruses on Myspace and Facebook.

Response to Newgrounds has Virus's? 2009-06-14 17:57:24


No, Newgrounds does not give people viruses.

Those retards are mistaking the viruses they get from watching porn with viruses they *got from Newgrounds*.

It has no viruses, but inexperienced people use that as an excuse because their mommies don't like them on such a dirty website. He's full of shit or was on Newgrounds while simultaneously downloading some trojans.

The other day my browser tried to stop me from coming here because it said newgrounds hosts malware.

Chrome agrees.

Viruses on Newgrounds are an urban myth. Just like everything else, they only way to get them is by downloading crap you shouldn't be. And then there's the occasional viral 'under judgment' flash.

Response to Newgrounds has Virus's? 2009-06-14 18:21:24


Your friend is just saying that because he doesn't want to see it.

That, or he thinks it sucks.

In other words, he's a lying piece of shit that doesn't deserve a laptop

He's a dirty liar. Kill him. Now.

I've never gotten a virus. Ever. Ever.

Doesn't NG have tracking cookies for the website information like the exp points and shit like that?

I never had a virus yet, and I doubt it will ever happen.

Never, your friend is a dumb-ass, if he did, he got it from a user, and he's stupid enough to download from a rand user. Or maybe he was multi-tasking and downloaded a virus elsewhere while using NG.

I've been here for a while, haven't seen a virus yet

No I don't believe Newgrounds gives you any viruses, but I do think the site can make you sick ;)

What often happens with websites which allow live uploads of user-generated content is that a few bad apples will throw a few malicious scripts around, then a few anti-virus / firewall programs will pick it up and eventually run some sort of live update system which spreads the word to a load of other anti-virus / firewall programs.

It's pretty lame, but it can happen.

I came across one just there. I think it was from a game from the under judgement section. I'm just running a scan now! I hope for the best.

NG gave me the flu. Does that count?

Honestly, If you stay away from the Meet 'n Fuck games, and the Adult parts of the art section, then you're okay.

There's nothing wrong with the meet 'n fuck games or the adult section. Adult things does not equal things that gives you a virus.

Almost 9 years and never had a virus, that i know of anyways. NGs as always been safe for me.

I doubt it, if his laptop really got fucked by viruses last time, it was probably from the OTHER porn he was looking at.


Seriously, who even reads these things anymore?
