Possible Malware Warning

Recommended Posts

Just got a fake Java update popup on the homepage(spawned from those annoying popover window ads maybe?), with no X or exit. I hit the Update Later button and AVG shield caught it as an infected URL. Have a SS but OCC got strict on images and I cannot link to imgur and its too big to attach cuz they dropped the filesize limit to like 39kb x.x.

 

Careful guys!

Relax, your avast! just saved you from a virus.

 

My avast gives me that warning about 40% of the time when I click on this site, always a different url, don't seem to hurt anything but something is  not right, maybe this is why it seems quiet here lately, it would scare newbees away. :no:

This is actually the first time I have gotten a warning from avast on this site.

Looks like some AV Suites may have some residual from the fallout of the last incident recently. Looking at Virus Total only 3 of the 51 online scanners still classify an issue. https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/956dd46c3680dc103351cf28dd14835c22f751d436ba34182d8305cc35b22651/analysis/ . I also ran a live real time scan from where I work and all content and URL/Links came back safe for AV, Malware, etc.

We had a couple of ads that was in the rotation that seemed to be triggering some warnings.

 

We have blocked what we have located if, you guys seen anything else else let me know, a screen shot would be great as well so I can see whats on your screen at the time too helps.

 

Did a check today again today still showing clear, but if you see different let me know.
