Virus

Didn't know how else to contact you.

It seems that your website is infected by a HTML Script Virus. Every time I click on a new link or tab, my ESET Antivirus reports an infection by HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen virus.

  • anything else you think light be useful.

Thanks for reporting this important issue,

There was a discussion a couple months ago about this virus, and its origin seems to be coming from the Ad's, and appears to have been a false positive report by ESET Antivirus. I can't speak on this specific scenario, but the info might help the programmers in determining if there is a real threat here or not.

Will your browser antivirus let the page load? If yes, what does the site do?

Broswer/OS?

Hi mikeasuarus,

Browser is Firefox and OS is Windows 7 Ultimate. It seems to be working now and may have been a false positive as noted by canuckgirl.

Innitially, the page would load and then be blocked by ESET after detecting the threat. This only happened when clicking the NEXT link on the page. If I clicked on the next number in the sequence to change pages, then it was fine.

But all appears to be ok now.

Thanks.
