So i was watching clannad yesterday on anilinkz and when i clicked play a virus got on my computer...

It was horrible,i could Not go on the internet or open ANY programs,and it demanded me too buy their fake antivirus.

Good thing it was not my computer... XD
But just a quick warning don't go on it,maybe i should start downloading.....
That or i need to find good streaming sites...

Did anyone else get a virus on it?

I would also suggest not using Anilinkz, i used to watch there, but.. not anymore. Not a extremely safe site from my experience.

I ran the page with no script, There was nothing out of the ordinary that came up besides google stats, etc.

I did not get a virus.

You must have had a virus already and it reacted or started running when you played the video. Some viruses (in this case trojan) do that.

DONT WORRY this site is safe.

That's pretty unlikely since the computer was reformated 3 days before that happened.
I don't think its the site itself but were the site gets the videos from.

what is the link to the exact page you were on? I will do my best to get the virus. I am running a internet explorer from wine on my linux box, so it will allow me to not be totaled when I get infected, and I can prove this is a virus or not once and for all.

Probably got redirected to a site with malware or something, i don't like streaming but i went there to see if something would popup, clicked play on something then it redirected me to another site. That may have been what happened. Maybe should have had something like Avast and such running.

It's either this or episode 4.

And i do think getting redirected might have been the problem.

My computer got a virus from a redirect too.
Usually they are really low level virus that your laptop just fish out when you run a scan
I would say it is nothing to worry about, but yours seemed more serious.

Anilinkz is the site i used to watch Clannad and nothing happened to me. Nor when i watch anything else on that site. I don't want to sound like an asshole but it was probably a redirect.

I've had problems with anilinkz in the past. No viruses per se, but a good amount of spyware.

If I need to watch streamed anime, I just head to youtube or Veoh.

Ofuck, Anilinkz is the place I always go to if I want to stream Anime. Good thing I got an Anti-Virus protection. My Laptop will probably reject the virus if it comes to me anyways.

Happened to me once on [url]lifesgreatest.co.uk[/url], wasn't a redirect. Though I never had any problems before that and haven't had any after that. My advice: make sure at the very least you have standard antivirus software and a firewall.

I used to use Anilinkz alot and watched quite a few on that site... I have gotten a major virus but am unsure if it is due to anilinkz or one of the other random anime streaming sites I go to... though I think I'll keep clear of anilinkz from now on.
