We aren't coming to the conclusion based soley on the order of events. We are basing the conclusion on multiple factors. The 2 main ones are the fact that the virus tried to download when we were only on eHell (not just that it appeared when we had eHell open, but that it was actively blocked from loading onto formerly clean computers when only eHell was open) and the fact that it was the ONLY site that we all had in common.
Of course correlation doesn't prove causation, but at the same time, Occam's Razor (and common sense) should be considered.
One of the persons who reported a few days ago that her work computer had been infected with the Win 7 Security virus emailed me earlier today. She had taken her computer to the IT person who revealed that hers was the 11th employee computer in 2 days to be infected with the exact same virus via shopping online, opening an ecard, etc. She further reported that she and the other employees were not on the VPN (Virtual Privacy Network) which the tech explained adds a layer of protection when it is used.
I never said or thought that eHell was infected; I believed (and still do) that the malware came from an ad on eHell. The fact that the ad potentially showed up on other sites and caused infection doesn't mean it didn't also appear on this site.
I obviously can't prove where it came from, and I really no longer care. I'm tired of the issue. However, I do care when it is implied that myself and others are too dim to look for actual evidence and therefore just assumed that "a happened before b, so a caused b." That was the implication of Art's post, and I was replying to that.
Also, I am extremely bothered by EduardosGirl being called a troll. She's not. She's not trying to cause trouble, she's not stirring the pot, she's not being hateful; she's trying to address actual issues and is doing so politely.
