    Another virus warning

    Starting this AM I am getting another virus warning when I open these forums or another page on these forums.
    The file name is k?tstmp= (followed by a 10 digit numeric string)
    The path is http://static.lakenormankids.com/ (followed by the file name above)

    The 10 digit string is different every time.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Mike - I'm not seeing any warnings here, but I'll have our hosting provider look into it.

    Mike -

    Can you tell me if you can try to reproduce the warning on another machine? All the scans our provider has done are coming back clean.


    Thanks!

    Hal

    Yes - both machines running the latest version of Firefox. Same thing on both (I wasn't logged in on the 2nd machine)

    It is still doing it on every new page. Acts almost like a vbulletin page tracker of some sort but my antivirus is throwing the flag, and the source is strange

    maybe not all fixed? Opera browser gives a "malicious site warning" saying "visiting this site may be harmful. It has been reported for distributing malicious software. Opera software strongly discourages visiting this site."

    I just fired up Opera and saw the warning you're talking about. As I read it, it means that the site was reported as having an issue at some point - none of our diagnostics or malware scans show anything out of the ordinary after our fixes from yesterday. According to Opera, the report came from a site in Russia (ironically, home to a majority of our spam attackers) called Yandex. I'm not sure if we can petition them to withdraw their warning or not, but I'll look into it.
