    Virus warning problem.

    Using the site here in Holland and have noticed all gallery images are gone from the front page. The site is also giving virus and trojan warnings via Avast on my pc.

    I see the gallery image thing has happened before but the warnings are very weird. Great site a shame if the warning keep up.

    Cheers

    I had the Avast thing not that long ago - I think it maybe cookies. Clear your history and see if that fixes it.

    Yeah I already brought this up when I first started having the issue. According to the scanning websites, the site is clean, dunno if it's an issue with google caching.

    Try this.

    Google for a thread that returns a conceptart.org site - Click on it.

    You get a Warning for a redirect trojan?

    Hmm, interesting.

    I tried twice. First time, nothing. All fine.
    Second time, I got this message, which I have never seen before:

    Unable to add cookies, header already sent.
    File: /home/concept/public_html/forums/worldmap/geoip/geoip.php(37) : regexp code(1) : eval()'d code
    Line: 5

    EDIT: No virus warning though. All my stuff is up to date as well.

    This. I joined the Avast forum to try to report the false warnings, but I don't have time to navigate round it. Any one care to fly the flag for CA?

    Ive had warnings from avg for exploits(very recently), but only for older threads turning up in google. I'll also say that the front page was hacked a while ago(had some subtle blacked out russian link at the bottom) and it took a while for it to be fixed. ca might want to try to beef up its security a bit.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Am now browsing the site in Chrome and there are no problems . The gallery links at the front of the site are still down.

    The fact that Google Chrome delivers no warning could be a webkit thing I guess.

    I'm now getting it on on every single click. I've posted in the Avast forum http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=99910.0 and hopefully someone will cast a light on what's going on.
