Solved Google Chrome is detecting Malware

Post by shazzld on July 20th 2010, 4:19 am

Hi Everyone Hello

One of our admin team contacted us today saying that when she went to log on this morning that her Google Chrome came up with detecting malware from the site iconator.com.

This is what she got:

What is the current listing status for iconator.com?Site is listed as suspicious - visiting this web site may harm your computer.
Part of this site was listed for suspicious activity 1 time(s) over the past 90 days.
What happened when Google visited this site?Of the 186 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 140 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2010-07-19, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2010-07-19.
Malicious software includes 100 scripting exploit(s), 65 trojan(s), 51 exploit(s). Successful infection resulted in an average of 1 new process(es) on the target machine.
Malicious software is hosted on 3 domain(s), including w91t.com/, 2rry.com/, t58v.com/.
This site was hosted on 19 network(s) including AS20940 (AKAMAI), AS558 (NET2EZ), AS3549 (Global Crossing Ltd.).
Has this site acted as an intermediary resulting in further distribution of malware?Over the past 90 days, iconator.com did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites.
Has this site hosted malware?No, this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days.
How did this happen?In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message.

Any idea's why and why it's just happened overnight??

Thanks heaps!!

thats not even a forumotion forum ?
can you post your link to your forum so i can see if it comes up for me as well.

other then that it sounds like it could corrupt coding somewhere on the page.
i would try to contact google and ask them exactly what it all means.
but just to be safe tell your admin to run all her scans just to make sure nothing harmful has gotten in.

If the browser is blocking you from accessing it, then the site has became dodgy, I would recommend chosing another site to get ur avatar's from.

yeah they have a all kinds of embed codes on that site.
there's probably a number of them codes corrupt.. i would most definitely use a different site.

As far as your forums log in page i do not have anything coming up with IE,FireFox,Google Chrome or flock.
