    I've noticed something while going through the Walkera.com website. Every time I go to the Support page for the Furious 215, and click on "FAQ" to presumably navigate to the page of frequently asked questions, I am instead sent to a mostly unpopulated Walkera page without a single faq question or answer. Worse still, Windows Defender opens up to tell me that it has intercepted a website trojan called Brocoiner!rfn, which works in the background to mine bitcoins for someone else. Has anyone else encountered this on the website? Do you suppose this is there without the Walkera IT team knowing about it? Just thought I'd put it out there so that others can be cautious when browsing the site, just in case it is a real threat.

    Its a problem on your machine not on the website.

    I have checked and have no issues with that page.

    Cheers

    That was my first thought too, except it has never been an issue for my machine, and only comes up when I visit that particular page of that particular site. Maybe you're mining and don't realize it. I will look into it further. Peace.

    We are not Walkera.com. Just a Fan supporters site.

    Cheers

    I was not implying that you were Walkera.com. I was suggesting that maybe others here are mining bitcoins for someone else, without their knowledge. Peace.
