My very first gig and I got burned by a malicious virus


Recommended Posts

A buyer bought my gig, and wanted 2 reviews written on his website. I had to register on his site to do so. The very second I uploaded the last review my computer was slammed with a malicious Trojan virus. It took most of night to remove it, and not sure I got all of it. I’m currently using my e reader as it’s not susceptible. I cried a little, I am so disappointed. There has been no communication from the buyer even though the gig has been delivered. I want to cancel it and get my information off his corrupt website. I’ll probably cancel my seller account here. I have been a buyer with great success and tried selling with no success. Any advice would be welcome, I feel like such a sucker.

@wynterwriter - you could always contact his hosting company and report the malware. Simply type in your browser this: http://whois.sc/ ::followed by his domain.
Example: http://whois.sc/fiverr.com

You can also report the website to google here:
https://www.google.com/safebrowsing/report_badware/

You’ll then see the domain owners info and the hosting account. Hope this helps.
