Is there any possiblity that there could be a virus attached to this game?. Thought it a bit odd when I clicked on "search an island" and a window apeared on the screen telling me I have this i-worm-brontok virus.

After reading this post I tried some islands for you but I didn't have the same problem. I don't see how it could download from the game just like that anyway, you should have seen things asking if you wanted to install the program (Virus.). To me it sounds like your virus scanner just happened to jump up at that time warning you of the virus, or more likely the message was fake and trying to get you to download a virus by pretending to be a free virus scanner download. Either way I doubt it's from this site, maybe an ad on the site??.

I thought I had taken nearly all of the ads off of the site....

Let me know if you see the virus message again.

I hadn't checked to see if there were ads, it was just a thought.
