    I had an alert on my avast when trying to visit giveawayoftheday.com. I ran the url through novirusthanks and virustotal but bot said clean.

    No problem/warning here with KIS, Prevx SafeOnline, WOT, or Google blacklist.

    MBAM blocks an outgoing to a possible malicious website but no further problems with gaotd.

    Nothing here. I'm running NOD 32, and Prevx with safeonline.

    I'm getting the same infection warning from avast...
    link removed as it was triggering avast
    I tend to believe and trust avast.
    I also get the MBAM warnings about giveawayoftheday.com.
    Perhaps this trojan is similar to the one that avast detected and is discussed here. In that thread it was suggested by Vlk that it could be a geoIP detection, meaning (I think) not everyone sees it, depending on their location.

    Someone needs edit page 2 over there. There has got to be some "exploitable code" over there, because AVG LinkScanner is going crazy and it won't allow me to completely read that page.

    Perhaps, replace the real text with some image or just edit text itself to see if won't trigger LinkScanner.

    Clean according to DynDNS block rules, Dr Web link checker, and PrevX SOL.

    This really should be looked at. Who ever wrote the part containing the exploiting code should edit it, so that AVG LinkScanner stops giving the red alert, and not let users read the respective page (page 2) in its whole. :)

    It's boring. :(

    Why don't you just hit the Report Bad Post button and tell them yourself?

    That's the problem. I get page two blocked, except for the top part, and can't report it. If I could, I would do it.

    I decided to mention it in here, considering there was a moderator posting here. I might as well create some thread somewhere (We'll see the appropriate sub-forum) reporting it.

    Well tell me what post it is and I'll report it, m00nbl00d. :cool:

    Edit in: If it's page 2, it's probably this post. Can you open that link?

    I could open it just fine. Not that. That's just an image. I'd to see something that could be using the form
    Code:
    random stuff
    . Can you see posts over there with these sort of form? Except for the link you already gave, because it sure isn't that either. :)

    Anyway, I've also created a thread in sub-forum to relate problems related to the forum. I never spotted it before.

    -Edit-

    I did what I could had done quite moments ago, but never crossed my mind! I disabled LinkScanner. LOL It is post 39
    Simple things never occurs to us when we need them! hah

    Anyway, thanks for your patience!

    Hey, that crossed my mind too... but it must have kept right on going because I never mentioned it. That thread was a great example of the learning and investigation and cooperation that sometimes goes on here at Wilders and makes it such a good forum. ;)
