On trying to get onto cougar-extreme.co.uk to drool over the computers Avast immediately flagged up a virus HTML:lframe-inf. I've scanned the system using Avast, I use Spywareblaster and Spybot and everything comes up clean on my system (XPSP2). Is it a false positive or has the Cougar site been hacked or compromised etc? I'm wary of asking folk to see if they can get on it as they may be at risk. What's the general opinion out there?
Living dangerously I tried the site and Kaspersky gave a warning and a PDF file began to open which I closed very quickly!. Living even more dangerously I re-visited without a problem. But I think that there is a problem with the site.
Being a more or less constant Cougar user, I had to try it.
Norton reported: Auto Pretect has detected Bloodhound PDF.9 .......... and blocked it and the site worked perfectly nontheless.
Looking at the log it is a High Security risk.
A bit of Googling provides the following info: Bloodhound.PDF.9 is a heuristic detection for potentially malicious PDF files that may exploit Foxit Reader PDF Handling Multiple Remote Vulnerabilities (BID 34035) in order to perform further malicious actions.
Thanks for the prompt replies folks. I never got as far as downloading it Gandalf.....Avast put up a warning and I cancelled the connection. I've deleted all temp internet files just in case though. In the Avast log files there's a warning about viralvideos.org also. My daughter mentioned that Avast had thrown up a warning a few days back so this site may also be infected. Once again this forum proves it's worth!
