The YLE news reader created by SC5 Online Ltd has been found by users to have a remote command execution web vulnerability. The vulnerability allows remote attacker to execute code inside of a the application to compromise the device. One user is already experiencing a Porn Popup ads Nightmare. SC5 was responsible for developing the YLE news reader compatible with Windows 8, the newest OS by Microsoft. They worked with YLE, a national broadcasting company in Finland to develop this news reader with many convenient and easy to use features.

Attempts to reach either company have bore no fruit but we hope that users can be careful while using such websites.

Well for your very first post on this forum, that's a pretty wild statement, with nothing posted to prove that either company is responsible for the 'One user is already experiencing a Porn Popup ads Nightmare'

Is that 'One user' you?

I see that you have also posted the same on webhostingtalk.com click here but after a search I can find no reference to any problems or others complaining.

Will be interested to learn of your findings that there is a potential problem.

I found it odd but not the usual links to indicate spam.

bumpkin, sometimes a spammer will start a thread and sneak a spam link in after a couple of posts...

Here's an example of one today on pca forum click here

lotvic, I appreciate your efforts towards keeping this forum clean but I would appreciate it if you created your own thread that discusses how to spot spammers to another thread.

I have depended on YLE for news and if their attempts to move some of us from analog to the digital world come at a price then I would want to get the input of other users. If you have nothing constructive or can't draw any benefit from my post then create yours that are of relevance.

leolaparker, I am not the FE. The Forum Editor is the one that keeps forum 'clean'

I apologise to you for replying to bumpkin and giving him link to another thread so he could see how some spammers work.

However, this is the Tech Helproom for Specific PC Problem Solving, if you want a discussion (as opposed to a pc problem solving) then Speakers Corner is the place for that.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
