    Well I can't delete spam visitor messages or posts - I've been editing them as fast as I can. At least I can still ban the bastards.


    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.

    Also not sure if related, but I get this issue too in some boards (Crit board doesn't give this warning to me) and I did the re-boot virus check that Avast can do and found some viruses in the Mozilla files. Not 100% sure if they came from that, but might be good for other people to do this same check just in case.

    Do I need to be worried at all about posting/visiting here until this gets resolved?

    I did a full Malwarebyte scan last night - came up with nothing. If you're to date I think you might be safe - it's a pretty old virus. I have everything on my computer backed up.

    I have firefox and avast and I keep getting the malware blocked warning. It doesn't seem to matter what part of the forums I'm in. Any new navigation within the site causes the pop-up. I don't feel comfortable finishing the CHoW with this wackiness going on.... Please fix or I'll have to go to cghub instead...

    Not yet. I've done scans of my computer with several programs and nothing has infected it, so if you're up to date, you should be okay. It's just very annoying.

    Not worried about getting infected, most virusses are pretty lame and dont do that much but I cant access my usercp or the image loader and some random pages just wont show. Like you said annoying

    Even getting this far has been a task

    I had to put conceptart.org to my website exclusions for the moment. I'd rather not do.

    Is there no admin? No technological higher power??? No lordly figure who in their benevolent mercy can answer the veritable "what the?" coursing through my simplistic brain? Because I'd like to keep on visiting my own sketchbook here as well as the challenges (which I try to do weekly). Alas, the silence is staggering. At any click on the forums I find a " HTML: Script-inf" whatever infecting my computer. False positive or no, it seems I'm not the only one...

    C'mon, folks, someone in the know pipe in already...

    They're on the case, but it is the weekend. Hold on for a bit.

    Okay, I've heard from Jason. It'll be sorted, but it might take a bit of time.

    Good to know it isn't just me. There are TWO different kinds of infections Avast is detecting whenever I try to browse around the forums. One of them is JS: Redirector-MA [Trj] and the other is HTML:Script-inf . I hope that helps!

    Is it only Avast users who are having this problem? I'm using Kaspersky and I don't have a problem at all...

    Be careful then, because they've confirmed that there IS a virus of some kind afoot.

    I use AVG on my home computer and I've been getting the virus warning for a while now. I can't even get on to the site at all. At work, we have Symantec Endpoint Protection and I don't get the warning.

    I'll try and get an update. At least I can ban & delete even if it is the long way round.

    Hmm, my homeputer with works solely on Avast constantly gets viruses in this place: ComputerName\AppData\Local\Mozilla almost every time after I've visited part of the site that gives the warning, but my workputer that works on the new Avast-Windows Defender mix never gets any warnings or viruses in here.

    Same here, I went to CA at my folks place. My old man uses Avast solely
    and it gave me hassles about CA. But my defender/avast mix here at
    my PC is fine with it.

    However, boot scans reveal things it does not like in Mozilla, but they
    are minor.

    Avast, warnings everywhere, some pages don't even loaded. I always could find a way to get over it till now, I need to be able to see my subscribed SBs - but now I'm absolutely unable to send a private message. A few minutes ago it was okay.
    Hopefully the problem will be solved soon.

    For me this mainly happens when I try to click links from an email, it also occasionally gives me an error page. I'd put what it says here but I can't get it to occur again.

    Nice, now my "internet provider" is blocking the forums for malware, using a proxy atm.
