Virus Alert.


You may have noticed that I now approve my comments before they appear on my blog. The reason for this is that somone I know had a virus in one of the comments left on her blog. Fortunately her swift reactions stopped it. I have since seen it on two other blogs in the comment section. It normally says something like:- Marikesh says..click here. DO NOT CLICK HERE because you will upload the virus. So for your protection and mine I will check all comments to make sure they are safe, if suspicious I will delete them. Happy blogging, stay safe.

Very wise. I started to get alot of spam awhile back, put comment moderation on and it soon disappeared, so was able to switch it off again!!
I love your header pic, makes me smile everytime I come to visit!

Thanks for passing that on, Cheryl .. very sensible. Have been wondering whether to enable moderation on my blog, too.

Cheryl, I didn't know you could get a virus through comments. I had noticed you were previewing them though. Good idea. Sometimes i have to type in the word verification 2 or 3 times before I get it right. They can be sooo hard to read! Maybe I need to put my glasses on.

Thanks for the "heads up" Cheryl.

The swan photo is beautiful.
Thank you for letting us know. I also had to do some blog cleaning. I enabled the comment moderation too.
It is not a bother.
Hugs,
Sherry

Hi Terrie

It was a lovely afternoon. Somehow the water and the grandchildren put one in the right mind to cope with anything.
