Default Trojan?

When I visit DTP Forum I get a warning regarding a trojan (see attachment), this only happens on this site so it might be worth looking into.

I don't get any warnings with Norton Internet Security 2011 and the website checks out clean with Norton Safe Web:

http://safeweb.norton.com/report/sho...m/bb/index.php

I'd suspect a false positive -- does AVG have a service where you can submit a URL for checking especially if you think it is a false positive.

What version of AVG are you using? Free or Paid? They recently released what seems to be AVG 10 although named AVG 2011 .....

It also might be a forum glitch since I just got my reply referred to moderation .... again!

Could be the URL I put in to the Norton SafeWeb clean report on the site.

I am using Norton Internet Security 2011 and it does not flag the site.

What version of AVG are you using? Can you refer false positives to them?

A couple of us have noticed the problem; it's being looked into behind the scenes, Bo. Thanks for mentioning it.

FWIW That warning Bo posted mentions redirecting which is a red flag to security software .... not that I know what it is <g>

I get it from time to time as well:
http://76.76.118.6/5734.jar which Eset calls a Java downloader trojan.
