Here is the picture Jon Bassett e-mailed me....

Photo manipulation is great fun, and trial versions are available online. I'd be interested to see how imaginative and profficient the board members are in the use of Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro.

Ehm. I tried to check out the main page http://www DOT rpgswapshop DOT com and it wanted to put a trojan on my machine.  :?:

I got that too when I uploaded and NAV took it out. I don't know much about what the provider supplies in the way of CGI, but I am a little concerned. I've tried wiping my site from their server and reloading it from my PC but the trojan is still there. My PC is clean though as far as I'm aware. I have an up to date NAV and it does daily check for new definitions.

I looked at the source code of your page; the last line of your page includes the following:

Code:
http://eurotracker.org/counter/new1/index.php

(note: don't visit this site unless you have good protection against Trojan viruses!)

It's in an invisible (0x0 pixel) popup. I figured it might be some sort of site-visitation tracker, but when I went to that address directly, the Trojan popped up again. That's your culprit.

Obviously, if that's something that has been added by your web provider, I'd dump them immediately (you could possibly even sue them).

Since you've donated to The Acaeum, now might be an excellent opportunity to make use of your free space. :) Switching your DNS entry will only take 24-48 hrs, too.
