    Swagbucks - TV (Watch & Earn) - VIRUS WARNING

    Warning

    The last 5 times I have run a Swagbucks TV video I have received a virus and been redirected to a strange site.

    All times I accessed the video from a msg in my Swagbucks inbox.

    I will try to write swagbucks, but beware in the meantime.

    Thank you for your email. I sincerely apologize for the trouble with the SBTV videos. These have been tested and have not showed any trace of malicious software. Please be sure to check the settings on your anti-virus. I will forward this information over to the guys in charge of the tech support for them to take a look at it.

    Your continued support is greatly appreciated. Have a great day ahead!

    this is the reply that i got from swagbucks, my norton has been catching the virus's but hope they fix it soon

    I have not had this happen on any SB videos. Is everyone that this is happening to using the same antivirus? It could possibly be a false positive from your antivirus software. I have had this happen a few times, on different sites in the past, particularly after an update to the antivirus software.
