Update: March 15, 2009

I thought this would fix my website by patching Line 261:
/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/mainframe.class.php and there was a copy attached. But, one of my customers reported it did not.

Changelog VM build 1663

Peter has told me the SVN is the place to address this issue, using the proper procedures and channels.

If we could get some programmers involved, maybe we could fix this, once and for all?

Update: March 10, 2009

It is broken, can you fix it?

I finally fixed my website by patching /administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/mainframe.class.php and there is a copy attached.

Please refer to this topic for confirmation:;topicseen#new of the change in the code.

As you can see from the picture below, the biggest problem is Microsoft IE. The error even shows up on the Apple Store website.

Perhaps Peter can add this to the patch?

Save yourself some time and read this at least, then the last page, or two of this thread.

Bug swat? Try searching for "Operation Aborted".

AND, here is a dynamicaly updated list of Joomla Extensions that may have the IE Operation Aborted problem.

Clue: Look at the list and see if you have one, click the link and read.

Thank you! Do we have a winner?

Update: Feb 25th, 2009 I have literally tested all the solutions offered in this thread and they do not work for me.

For those that are new to this issue, read on...

Update: Feb 15, 2009 The recent patch (#3) is not working for me.

See the last page of this thread if you want the "Rest of the story".

The recent patch (#2) is not working for me.

The following quote is new on Feb 12, 2009

--- Quote ---I should have read the Release Notes for IE7 more thoroughly: Here is what it stated:

If you are having problems with IE7 hanging, crashing, silently closing or other bizarre behavior, an incompatible toolbar or other add-on maybe involved.

The fastest way to determine if an add-on is causing the problem is to run IE7 with no add-ons.

You can do this by going to Start, clicking All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools and click Internet Explorer (No add-ons).

This disables all add-ons from loading in that instance of Internet Explorer. If the problem goes away, you can manually disable specific add-ons to find the specific one causing the problem.[/size]

SYMPTOMS: IE reports "Operation Aborted" in a pop up and lists a URL.
There are no obvious symptoms until the malware manages to infiltrate the system of the IE user.
This is a script written in Javascript that is part of a series of exploitation and redirection techniques. It is used to insert iframes into clean html pages. The injected iframes will lead to different exploits whose target is to download an executable file.

Interestingly, this also occurs with certain Sun Java S.E. and MicroSoft
C++ libraries that exist on a local machine.

The "Operation Aborted" issue may show on the last page of the checkout process.

My next step is to remove the Java S.E. and C++ libraries on my local machine. The above process fixed my "VM Product Admin Operation Aborted issue".

More will follow as I learn the details. Good luck and Godspeed.

Operation Aborted? and lists a reference to a Microsoft Bulletin.

"Have you ever seen this dialog while surfing the web in Internet Explorer?"

Hmm, what's new in the code that would cause this issue? Help!

Being a volunteer programmer must be one of the hardest jobs on earth. Volunteering to use a program may be the second hardest job on earth.

virtuemart uses mootools 1.11
get the 1.21 version and download the latest release of slimbox for MT 1.21

can anyone confirm if this will solve it?

MooTools 1.11 and 1.2.1 are incompatible, Joomla! 1.5 uses MooTools 1.11 now if we use MooTools 1.2.1 and Joomla! 1.5 uses 1.11 nothing will work.

Latest release of Slimbox does not work with MooTools 1.11, and we can't use MooTools 1.2.1 for the reason mentioned above.
