[FIXED] Getting malware/virus alerts on CakeCentral.com?

The good news is… the virus/malware DID NOT originate from cakecentral.com

The bad news is, once your PC has been infected it does affect you when you visit cakecentral.com.  It works by altering your cached versions of a common javascript framework, and may generate fake popup ads among other nasty things.

To get rid of it, you will need a virus scanner that has the ability to detect it, and possible a spyware/malware remover. You will also need to complete remove all of your internet explorer’s temorary files, cache and cookies.

It is also a VERY GOOD thing if you are on Windows, to install Microsoft Security Essentials.
Keep this program up to date, will block this kind of virus in the future for you.
