    Default Antivirus Blocking Web Attack on Inspection News

    I keep getting a pop-up form the Norton antivirus that it is blocking a web attack on this site. Anybody else seeing something similar? "JSCoinminer Download 41" is what it says is being blocked.

    Not me, but then again, I usually use my tablet. When I first started using this site on my laptop, I would sometimes get a pop up from my VIPRE security telling me that the website was not safe. But that stopped and I no longer get them. You might want to perform a full scan just in case.

    FYI, I never cared much for Norton, but I have been very impressed with Viper and have used it for 3 years now.

    Yes, been getting warnings about some malicious link by Kaspersky AV.
    Only this site, and always this site.

    Let Brian know, maybe he can have a virus/malware scan run of the site (I suspect he probably does that on a regular basis anyway).

    That has happened occasionally to me, but not for a few months. I have also seen an exceeded quota message, but not for a while.

    Is there a specific link or area of the site that triggered this?

    Long ago I had an isolated directory that had an issue but that should not be the case now.

    As soon as I load the IN page, the message about blocking a malicious link appears. The link is in the screen shot above. I imagine it is one of the ads or banners that seem to load.

    Same here. And every time I click on a thread, it pops up.

    I have gone through the site and run scans and I am not finding any issues.

    I will continue to test but all seems to be OK. Attached is one of the scan reports.

    Sorry Brain, but it is Not OK.

    I used another workstation (has no login to your site) and the same warning popped up when IN was loaded.

    Check whatever links or sponsored ads or whatever else loads on your site.

    Thanks a lot, Gunnar ... I hadn't received that message in a long time, but got it this afternoon ... did you forget to knock on wood when you posted that?
