If you're planning on looking for new maps, UIs or any other mods then avoid FPS Banana for a while. They've been infected with the "Black Internet" trojan.

Full Credit to Rhalle and GTFO Gaming for finding this. Just thought I'd let you all know about this since the only thread on this on the Steam forums is in the CS:S forum.

Here's the links to the threads I got them on and some info I quoted on it:

It's embedded in the site itself somehow, which means all you have to do is go there-- you don't have to download anything, and you'll be infected. All the following programs did not detect the trojan AVG, Ad-Aware and Windows Defender.

If you've been to FPSBanana in the last day or less, check your task manager. Look for iexplore.exe running-- or multiple instances of it if you are surfing with internet explorer, of course. You might also be hearing audio advertisements and/or multiple weird noises and mouseclicks.

Apparently this trojan infects the MBR, to fix the virus problem make all folders viewable in the control panel -> large icons -> folder options -> view -> show hidden files, folders and drives, then reboot in Safe Mode and go here:

C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Appdata\Local\Temp

and deleting these two files:

Loader.exe
Smss.exe

And until further notice I strongly suggest that you avoid going to the website.

THIS SHOULD BE ON EVERY PAGE.

    Red's first spawn point on Egypt is the worst thing ever.

    Seriously: Blu takes the first point and then all of our team dies again in spawn? Might as well just give the game to Blu.

    Egypt is the worst map, hands down. The look of it is cool, the design is utter shit.

    Because you get a TF2 hat if you complete a certain achievement in Alien Swarm.

    And as we know, Hats are the most important thing in TF2. :)

    See, I think their plan with Alien Swarm was to release it free so that everyone plays it and unlocks the hat achievement.

    Then people who don't have TF2 will be like "whelp, I got this hat, might as well buy the game"

    Valve is trying to sell their game with unlockable hats in other games. It's genius really.

    Really, that's been the opposite of what they've tried before: offering TF2 hats in exchange for buying other games (Left 4 Dead 2 and Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse)

    Patch Notes

    Nothing really spectacular.
    Team Fortress 2

    * Added a Parasite hat to celebrate the release of Alien Swarm (http://www.alienswarm.com/)
    * Fixed a client crash when opening the backpack while running in a language other than English.
    * Fixed not being able to pick-up buildings in Arena mode.
    * Fixed an exploit that allowed team kills with Wrangled sentries.
    * Fixed a bug where teleporters could be given more than their normal amount of health.
    * Fixed old demos with different data tables thinking the SourceTV player entity was burning.
    * TF Bot Changes
    o Improved performance of bot computations that are done when a point is captured, a round starts, or a checkpoint reached.
    o Fixed Engineer bot infinite build-destroy behavior loop regression
    o Fixed Medic bots losing their charge if they touch a resupply cabinet
    o Fixed a crash due to having multiple types of bot systems running in-game simultaneously
    o Fixed bot behavior issue resulting in bot pile-ups near level 3 teleporter entrances
    o Bots no longer consider sapped sentries a dangerous threat
    o Bots will not try to navigate through enemy spawn rooms (unless they have won the round)
    o Bot Engineers will avoid building teleporters on steep slopes which can hinder teammate movement
    o Added tf_bot_pyro_always_reflect cvar. Set to 1 to make Pyro bots always reflect projectiles, regardless of difficulty level.

    EDIT: Picture of the new hat:

    tf2 is their testbed for shit

    as is evident in l4d, there's always room to improve ai

    so they use tf2 as a place to test stuff like bots

    plus it's a neat feature for free!

    also the parasite hat
