Trojan!! Started today..........8.28.12
« on: August 28, 2012, 04:32:15 PM »
I Attempted to change the settings in my Google account using Firefox v.14 and IE v.9 browsers and I get:

Infection Details
URL:   https://www.google.com/settings/_/ac-sta...
Process:   C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\f...
Infection:   JS:Blacole-AV [Trj]

Avast blocks all access.

When I do the same functions in Comodo Chrome..............THERE IS NO TROJAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The same (JS:Blacole-AV [Trj]) is being reported when I log into my banking acount.  If this is in fact a false positive, then it needs to be taken care of QUICKLY.  If it is NOT a false positive, then I need to call my bank and tell them someone has infected their website with a trojan.       -kd5-

I am very unhappy after spending Many hours testing my computer and also seeking info about the Blacole-AV trojan alert that began occurring at 7:00 am CT today - and Only when I logged into my bank acct.

The definition updates from Avast have become sloppy the past few months and have caused a lot of problems for me.

This is why I will probably never upgrade to the paid Avast.  It USED to be a great  antivirus but  this year it has become a problem Too Many Times...  :o/

Only a week ago it began blocking ALL websites but allowed me to have POP email access.   And that has happened 2 or 3 times this year - all due to Avast.

I probably will be switching to a different antivirus in the near future.

Thanks for the quality service in years past - too bad that those are the good old days now.
