    DealExtreme Users Beware

    There is an adware / trojan on some of their pages. Make sure your Virus Scanner and Spyware programs are up to date.

    The file is: csauie1.ocx

    I don't think it will cause any harm to your PC, but worth getting shut of if it appears.

    How did you find out?

    Only visited two sites today; HUKD and DealExtreme. Was on the third page of "New Arrivals" when my virus scanner popped up with the good news!

    :O... Wow.

    I've just been on myself and nothing as yet - what browser are you using?

    Wonder if this relates to their recent downtime/access issues?

    Not sure if that file came from DX.

    That file seems to be linked to a "Coupon toolbar" (whatever that is) for Firefox/Internet Explorer.

    I have a similar problem with Screwfix Direct. Everytime I go on their site I have to virus check and there's always a couple of trojans attached to what I take are cookies from the site. I use Spydoctor as my anti-virus software.

    Yep, saw the same when I searched too - "Adware.Coupons"

    You can't get a trojan from a cookie

    That may be the case, but can you explain my situation? Why would I get the above just from going onto the site?

    Did come from Extreme Deals. Had not visited any other site until then, and I don't print coupons. I suspect, as mentioned above, that it might be a reason for their downtime. I use Avant Broswer, I have set it to deal history, cookies and temporary internet files on close down, so cannot be past adware (which I never have an issue with anyway).

    Ditto here, though I did use the https address not the http
