I just got a warning from virus scanner when I opened www.abovetopsecret.com... that
file name: zdcxz.myz.info/showthread.php?t=xxxxxxxx (numbers removed for privacy)
is Exploit Incognito Exploit kit (type 1473)

This kind of bums me out.
Can this be checked out?

Edit to add:
According to this website: www3.malekal.com...
its TrojanDownloader:Win32/Karagany.A
antivir: TR/Spy.ZBot.325690

I dislike coming to this site without either a strong firewall, or NOT being on Windows. it happens quite often.

yikes. i figured ATS would be a relatively clean and safe site. It really bothers me that there are, apparently, viruse(s) to be had coming here.
Now... conspiracy theories?
Who is going to be the first to say it's the Big G?

ats might be a clean and safe place while those hosting the advertisers or their links to other servers may not. always good idea to keep an antivirus program with a functional antispyware feature in the background.

I viewed source generated by the .php file and saw tons of _javascript calls. The actual call for zdcxz.myz.info/showthread.php wasn't on the site .php so must have been one of the advertisers called by a _javascript.

Should there be rules about restricting advertisers from putting malware on webpages in order to appear on this site? That would seem reasonable to me.

I've just run several tests, and there are no reports of any issues. Here's the results of one test.



Our ads are scanned every day, and there are no alerts.


Not sure what could have caused it.

i had experienced this issue also on the website of another community before. perhaps ad rotators (if any) run on the advertiser's server, which would be otherwise legit, could be the cause, ie. the connection to a website with the bad code may be there for an instance and gone afterwards.

I can never understand why people think they have problems with viruses on ATS - I've been a member here for 4 years and NEVER ONCE have I had a virus warning or problem from this website.

LEARN HOW TO USE FIREWALLS AND ANTIVIRUS PROGRAMS - for the love of god it's not that hard. You've probably picked up a virus somewhere else (hint: stop looking at porn) that takes a while to start manifesting itself.

AVG Free Antivirus + Firewall
Spybot - Search and Destroy Anti Spyware Free
Peerblocker

And use this bit of free software to clean your PC out once a week.....
CCleaner

All these programs are FREE and easily available to anyone who knows how to click a download link. Used in conjunction with each other these will keep out all the nasties and prevent people from blaming ATS for their woes.

Thank you. I wouldn't expect anyone to do more than daily checkups on ads, else there wouldn't be time for anything else.

Thank you.

I think that's it also. When I viewed source no sign on this sites .php generated html. And my resident shield didn't give any later alert.

I think there are just too many spiderwebbing connections on the WWW for any one to deal with them all.

That's why I use a separate computer for porn. I've discovered that game hacking websites are much worse than porn sites for malicious codes.

The worse codes attach themselves to automatic updaters such as adobe acrobat reader updater and Java updater. I quit using adobe acrobat reader and went with a 3rd party pdf reader. Haven't had to wipe my harddrive since.

My virus scanner will once in awhile report something that doesn't exist, a false positive. Given the number of virii and the way they are detected, this is inevitable.

There is no way that this stuff ISN'T on ATS. Thats why people are always trying to buy these sites up, it goes hand in hand with profit.
