Today whilst writing on one of the wikis, my Norton popped-up and told me that the imfamous svchost.exe had been using up a lot of memory. Although I understand that svchost.exe is mandatory for Microsoft PCs to operate, I am told that some malware disguises itself using this file name and replaces it with a .dll file.
The only reason why I am suggesting that the potential malware may have come from Wikia (if it turns out to be malware) is because I saw a non-window pop up on a wiki earlier this year called "Scorecard Research". I believe that Wikia's ads may contain malicious code.
