    That's odd. I don't doubt what you are saying, but Win 7 64 bit Firefox + avast + Win defender works for me.

    edit: To clarify. My antivirus does not go nuts, but the site kicks me out randomly and also
    prevents me from doing some of my usual duties without taking other measures and doing
    workarounds.

    I get tired, and simply turning off my avast every time i am entering CA website.

    Other than warning did anyone noticed any real threat?

    Site still isnt working.
    I can view picks on the front page but cannot access the forums. In fact will be interested to see if this post goes through. I gained access of this page via my email notification link.

    You can doubt what I am writing but my intention is to help you get a great site up and running short of fixing the code myself because I hate web work

    I hope someone will post an all clear here when the site is fixed.
    Cheers
    and thanks for all the fish.

    I'm scared of browsing this place, have been getting malware/trojan/virus warnings for months now, how do I know it's safe? I think I'll have to come back in a few years

    How hard is it to fix a virus problem? I used to own a site about 1/3 the size of CA (still pretty big) and had a similar problem... write a script to search out the bad code and delete it on the server, or replace all the infected files on the server with backups. Was there no file backup? Take the site down for a few hours and re-install the server and upload a sterilized backup if you have to and look at network activity and ban suspicious ip address. And figure out a way to protect against similar exploits in the future. In our case, the worm infected many thousands of files through injection... and it was fixed in a day or two, with a front page announcement to warn everyone without antivirus protection.

    I love CA, and believe me, nobody is more sympathetic to these kinds of problems... but I don't understand how a security problem like this can go unfixed so long. Also, this is important enough to put on the front page of the forum so people can get the facts and updates without having to search for them.

    I also have this issue of pages not loading, big time. On one of my PCs I just got the virus alerts and I could live with that especially since the laptop loaded fine. But now, the laptop still shows no alerts, but I have to refresh every page about 5 times for it to finally load (properly) and sometimes it won't load at all so I backtrack a little and start the process again. It is very tedious. On the other PC it doesn't load either and I still get the alerts. Not sure if the loading issue is related though or is it something from my end? But this whole thing has alienated me from the forums quite a lot.

    This is just a minor insignificance in what has otherwise been THE best resource on the internet for artists (imo). Over the past year and a half I taken so much from this place, learnt tons and not had to give anything, so a little patience is the least they (admin people) deserve! Besides, it's gonna be awesome when back to normal, I for one won't take it for granted again!

    Don't want to make another topic so i'll post here. It seems like the issue is back for me. Firefox blocks access to ca.org homepage and any other thread on this forum ;<

    You can ignore it (bottom right) then click on the top left X. All other browsers are okay as are anti-virus programs. Site has been given a clean bill of health. http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/conceptart.org

    It could also be a caching DNS issue varying from ISP.

    Nothing from the site scans so far - http://siteinspector.comodo.com/public/reports/8923877

    Might be an old cache.

    It also might be someone's link in the thread that's alerting you, not CA itself
