Virus?

Postby fisticuffs » Tue May 01, 2012 3:52 pm

My computer doesn't like page 5 of the most recent Guns, Guns, Guns thread. Pages 1-4, no problem but I click on the last page and I get this:

Gateway Anti-Virus Alert

This request is blocked by the SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus Service. Name: Suspicious#Iframe_4 (Trojan)


Doubt I'm missing much. Especially since I have the main participant blocked but just curious why this is happening.

I don't see anything on the page to cause this.
Anyone else seeing their antivirus throw up a flag there?

Nope. Fisti's message says there's a suspicious iframe present, but the only one in the source code is for Facebook. The exact same iframe is present on pretty much every page on the site, so... no idea.

However, if you've actually got some sort of trojan installed, it's possible that it's requesting additional, unwanted content from other sites.

Assuming you're running Windows, go here, download, update, and run a full scan.

I'm glad I don't need to install trojans anymore.
