  3. And I bet no one at EA Mythic even checked that site to see if they are advertising stuff for sale, and have banners.

  6. WOW!

    And that's part of an FoF, I know cuz I went there to check it out.

    *runs home to check for a Trojan*
     
  7. You are aware that some products have different threat thresholds that can deliver a "false positive", right? AVG (ver 8, all processes on and updated) does not report anything abnormal from the site.

    That said, thank you for the warning ... and if it truly is harmful I will be the first to know, won't I? <chuckle>

    I'm guessing this is fairly serious. That being said, "Beware" was the best you could do for a title? Not a real attention grabber.

    My evil corporate antivirus doesn't kick up a warning either - is anyone but the OP getting it?

    Symantec Anti-Virus doesn't find anything wrong with that page. My AV Definition is dated today.

    Nothing on Kaspersky. I can't even see any particular code or scripts on that page that would cause that to show up.
     
  16. Sorry, but someone else in this thread stated a trial version of NOD reported it, bu Norton, AVG, Sophos and others are NOT reporting it.

    If you are on a trial version or beta release it may well be a false positive. Honest, what you've done is good, but it really could be this. Please don't get defensive at others words when I believe they are trying to help.

    I once saw McAfee do a false positive on a MS Office CD - gotten at work from the MSDN (MS Developer Network) subscription we had. Norton also barfed on it. Why? Because the heuristic code used in Office for internal macroing and detection created a string of characters that reported as a virus. It does happen.

    Might be it, but i dont see why NOD would make an quaratine file without something in it?! the virus signature file got updated just before i checked that link i felt it was quite alarming to have that pop up in my face when i know alot of iffy sites are out there. I thought a warning was in place and did so.

    peace

    Are there anymore options in NOD to display what script it was blocking?

    It lists it as a JS trojan downloader, so there should be some further documentation as to what it blocked.

    Seems like a false positive to me
    It only happens with nod when you click the link in the fof
    But, "Noscript" doesn't show any suspicious scripts running on the site.

    I've seen others reports turning up of false positives for ESET's NOD32 - here for example.

    No security programs will ever be 100%, ESET themselves acknowledge that false positives will sometimes creep through, as their website says

    "Low False Positive Rate
    A very low false positive rate ensures that the “good” files on your computer will not be flagged as malware. This is due to the intelligent synergistic use of advanced heuristics and generic signatures. ESET ThreatSense has produced the fewest false positives in its long history of testing with Virus Bulletin. "

    I don't personally use ESET, but I don't doubt they provide excellent software - just looks like, this time, it's been a little too sensitive and triggered an unnecessary alert.
     
  24. no issue from Avast either viewed the site fine no virus detected. Mine updates every day sometimes more then once lol.
     
  25. it most possible that they had a .php script error that was flagged as a trojan, and since on their site they said they where having issues with their forums that may be the case and nod has an over-sensitivity to .php scripts

    Out of curiosity, for anti-virus do you all have something in-house or do you just subscribe to one of the major ones?
