    Harmful site warning?

    Something odd's going on. In the last few minutes, whenever I view a board or thread on Conceptart, Avast starts pinging and telling me a threat's been detected. I'm given these details:

    URL: 1315910500/GoogleSearch/class.class
    Process: file://CProgram Files\Java\jre6\bin\new_plugin\npjp2.dll
    Infection: url:Mal

    Dunno what's going on.

    ...which is only my opinion.

    I got virus detection from Avira AntiVir program every time I enter Conceptart.org.

    It detects some Java program opening up.

    Yep, Chrome picked it up too, probably blocked it before Malwarebytes picked it up. I only got the message for about five minutes and now it's gone, so hopefully no harm done.

    I had the exact same thing, Chrome and AVG picked it up... Did CA's servers get infected? I'm on my phone now, kinda afraid to try again on my computer...

    Are ConceptArt web admin gonna reply to this post? Because I received the same message about malware on my Antivir Web Protection. It actually blocked me from viewing this site, hence I had to turn it off for a while so I could get in and write this comment.


    Please, web admins, explain the situation with all this antiviruses detecting malware on your site.

    Please don't turn it off. My Avast, which is going off on nearly every page is coping with it. Management have it in hand and hopefully it will be sorted out very soon.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Black Spot the problem is the user cannot use the site at all without turning their virus protection off. The only way I am able to use the site is just whitelisting just CA.org on my virus program. Other domains have been blocked out. I still get virus alerts coming from links on google.

    donafall can't access it either. He's waiting for the all clear. A break of a couple of weeks v computer being wiped out - I know what choice I'd make. If you're white listing it, does a scan pick up anything?

    Mc Afee does not pick up a virus. Avast will give me the gzip warning. I don't get warnings when I whitelist CA I don't get warnings, only when I visit it from google.

    Yup, I also get Avast warning whenever I enter a new page. Funny thing though, 2-3 days ago, McAfee didn't report anything, and this morning I got warned that this site is risky to visit, but when I click on the warning bar, it redirects me to McAfee site advisor, and there it says they didn't find any significant problems. Here comes the image:

    Yea I've been getting it too - figured it's not a very big threat, if one at all.

    I personally am not worried about it.

    I'm having the same issue, specifically on the 'PORTFOLIO REVIEWS with CA and TAD - ConceptArt.org Forums. Strange stuff.
