    Need some help clarifying...

    Okay so I was on neopets for about 5 minutes just wasting time when I went to buy some stocks from the stock market. I put in my 1000 shares for the one I wanted and when I went to click buy it brought me to a logged out page. The URL said something about "purchase shares" and a bunch of % symbols like a usual looking URL so I was not concerned. That said I remember being CG'd years ago, click on something and it logged me out I thought that was weird so I logged back in and a few minutes later everything was gone. Now I am not sure if I was just CG'd again, I log out immediately and did not log back in and then I ran a quick virus scan...it said found a trojan, not sure if that is in anyway related, but it was safely removed nonetheless.

    I restarted my compute after that scan and removal, have not logged back into my Neopets account...am I okay? Was the page I was directed to just a minor blip on Neopet's part? If I am not okay what do I do? lol If I was just CG'd is it only Neopets I need to be concerned about information wise or does it get access to everything on my computer/cookies/internet?

    Neopets has been sending me to the log out page several times over the course of the day, but when I just go back a page, and then try whatever I'm doing again, I'm still logged in and can continue as normal.

    Exactly what Kylae said. I've probably got it almost a hundred times today. I've noticed that it's much more common when visiting lookups. You're not actually getting logged out xD

    I like it because it means if I log into someone's account when they happen to be active, they're none the wiser.

    It actually is logging me out. I dunno if it's my browser or something, but my account actually does get logged out 0.o
    Like the refreshing thing just brings me the login page again. I've changed my pw and cleared my cookies a couple of times and it happens again. :/
