Guess what everyone - we've all got a virus! This ib.adnxs.com virus thingy apparently get's through even the BEST paid for anti-virus software. We have all d/l'ed something recently that let this malicious thing in and the way I understand it, it makes things worse and worse for our computer until it crashes us. We have to remove IT - all associated files - and messed up registry files.

I have been trying to do this, but every step by step removal guide I find wants me to remove the "random.exe" file before cleaning up the registry - but I don't have "random.exe" in my list anywhere. I'm at a loss! I will continue to look on my unaffected computer for some kind of fix and if I find anything, i'll repost.

Until then - if anyone can find anything useful on this - ib.adnxs.com - problem - PLEASE come back and post.

Good Luck everyone!

I'm having this same problem too and it seems to have started after I updated Firefox earlier this morning. I've run Malwarebytes and it hasn't found anything on the computer. I'm at a complete loss of what to do. What's going on?

What is your source that this problem is a virus, and not a problem with the AVG update? Or are you just trying to start a panic for laughs?

I've been getting the same thing since this morning (malicious site blocked: ib.adnxs.com etc.) on Chrome, and got a similar warning pop-up on Firefox, so my question is where do we go from here? Do we wait for AVG to get back to us? Do we call them?
October 19, 2012 16:08 Possibly related to RealPlayer update #218877

I think this issue (at least in my case) is related to updating RealPlayer this morning.
October 19, 2012 16:11 Might be related to my Firefox Update #218878

I didn't really have any problems earlier this morning when using Firefox prior to updating it to the latest version. Could this be related to what's going on? I also had to update MalwareBytes.

I'm not sure if the problem is related to updates. I don't know enough about it, but I noticed Chrome acting up first, and only after I got annoyed at closing the warning every minute did I switch to Firefox. That didn't help of course, since I started getting warnings through that browser as well.
