    Hey guys - weird virus block alert message here?

    Sup y'all

    So for the second day running now, I seem to have this odd block/message from my Avast anti virus coming up when I go to check out 'Is my advertising pays a scam?" link - NEVER had an issue before yesterday with this page or this site and despite having scanned and cleaned my PC, it came up again

    *see attached pic

    Any ideas please?

    Thanks and happy scam-busting/biz flop debunking

    I don't get anything and I use firefox too. I will say there are times when this site seems extremely slow lately.....like when I replied to this. lol

    None of my anti virus or anti malware programs are indicating problems, but, yes, the site is running slow and, as a matter of fact, the server dropped off for a couple of minutes as I was typing this post

    Thanks, folks it appears to be behaving itself this evening

    Must be just a weird ermmm 'thing' that happened. Twice.

    And yes, the site was indeed slower than an Asthmatic elephant going uphill in concrete boots

    I would get things like that once in awhile when I used Avast too. Both their free and paid services did it over the two years I used them. I checked a number of times with other services (AVG, McAfee Enterprise) and they never found anything. I switched over to Bitdefender last June and haven't had anything like it since.

    Most likely some script is just getting a false positive from Avast.

    Well, coming here from a Google search is triggering a redirect virus again, so something is definitely amiss.

    I got a strange warning too, and site is running just a little slow.

    The unpaid and overworked techies have been busy with their paying day jobs. My apologies. We will have her ship shape before you know it!

    Let me know if there's anything I can do to help out. If it's something like searching for certains types code and making specific changes, I can do that.

    Re: Hey guys - weird virus block alert message here?

    The redirect virus is back. It's now sending Google searches to hdfilmizled.com which then attacks the visiting system with further malware.

    Has this ever caused RealScam to hit the dreaded "suspicious sites" list with the "this site may harm your computer" message?

    Yep, certainly has.

    In fact we have had to apply to Google to have the site re indexed after one particularly virulent attack

    Just went to use a smiley and when I clicked the "more" option Mcafee gave me a warning. Just wanted to pass this along.

    part of the question got cut off. It's suppose to read: Are you sure you want to go there? This could be a hilarity overload for just one post.

    Where is Poyol? That redirect infestation has been causing trouble for weeks again, and now Norton Security is flagging realscam links with a red exclamation point on websearches.
