    Default Malware on TBCS?

    TBCS forum homepage

    Symantec detects Trojan.Malscript!html (Severe threat) and denies all access to the site
    Avast Free Antivirus warns that HTML:RedirME-inf[Trj] and reloads the site in Avast SafeZone Browser
    Kaspersky reports Exploit: HTML/IframeRef.Q was Successfully Blocked

    Three computers (Win7x64, Win8.1, Arch) with several browsers (all have Chrome, one IExplorer, one TOR-Firefox). All clean, updated, and secured (and, in fact, isolated from each other). I've tried clearing histories, caches, etc. But these web malware warnings keep persisting. On TBCS (and, ahem, a pirate bay) and nowhere else.

    Is this TBCS site hacked or infected?

    I do not see any warnings from our site from any of those programs, but I do know there are crash related issues going on.

    Is it time to revamp the site and harden the security?

    If there is anything I can help with let me know.

    Is anyone else experiencing similar issues. I am unable to recreate it here as well.

    No issues with Firefox 49.0.2 and McAfee 8.8.0 for me. That being said, it is McAfee so take it with a grain of salt.

    Still getting big beep beep "Threat Has Been Detected!" warnings from Avast here.

    I'm thinking perhaps it has nothing to do with the site content - it's probably about the site being Avast-blacklisted, Avast seems to believe this site was infected before, and all the offline/downtime probably didn't help. Reporting false positives hasn't helped. On multiple machines.

    (I recall a few times I attempted to visit TBCS and, because the site was down, was sent to the usual sites offering to sell me the domain name, lol.)

    This screenshot from a coworker's laptop (which I haven't otherwise touched in any way, so doubtful it's something caused by "my" quirks and configurations.)

    I access this site from about 5 different computers and have never seen any warnings from avast or other programs. I do not run McAfee, so can't help with that one.

    Just came in here to see what was up and I get no warnings either. I'm running Avast.

    I don't get it. My Symantec and Kaspersky machines (now) seem happy with this site. My Avast machine does not. Nor does my coworker's Avast machine. Could it be a regional thing?

    Could be a rogue ad on the network? I've been in several times this week and see nothing to worry about.
