AVAST detects infection from a website I am not on
« on: August 03, 2013, 05:47:45 AM »
A few days ago I came across a website and then avast! warned me that its web shield had detected a threat from that website (screenshot of avast! pop-up attached). Now the same "avast! Infection detected" message would pop up randomly three times in one instance when I'm on the Internet even though I didn't open that website at all. This happens every day at multiple moments. I've done a full scan of my laptop various times, but I've only come up with warnings (screenshot of full scan results attached).

What can I do to fix my situation? Thank you for any suggestions!

Infection: HTML:Script-inf

Most probably the browser is updating it's cache and loads the page. Try to clean the browser cache/history.

Hello,

I went to xeofix.com and avast blocked it due to trojan.
Checked with site owners and they checked out clean:
WHAT IS THIS?
Commercial and support site for xeobox sat receivers and avast is blocking it! That is not acceptable for an antivirus software nor is it a cache (flippant) problem: it is avast engine on OS X 10.8.3 and Safari that is at fault!!

Please if any developer at avast reads this: do something about it since it harms users and owners of websites!!

Hi tumic,

Thanks for your suggestion! I always clean my browser cache/history before closing my Safari browser though so that doesn't seem to be the solution. What user legov87 said does seem to match up...my macbook is OS X 10.8.3, and I use Safari.

There could be an image linked to the site that you were on and that is what triggered the alert.

The site can be infected without the owners having knowledge of it.
