Adult websites - Video-one.com and Booloo.com
« on: January 20, 2015, 08:30:38 PM »
As an adult I often frequent websites of an adult nature.  Video-one.com and Booloo.com are two that I frequent occasionally.  In the past two days I've been getting alerts from Avast starting that they contain malicious software, possibly Trojans.  I've researched on the web and no other similar anti-virus/malware site lists these two as having a potential problem.  Is Avast giving me a false alert and breaking the connection?  What's up with this?  Is everyone else wrong and only Avast is seeing a problem with these sites?  I realize that adult sites are ripe for misuse but I've not had this problem before two days ago.  Any answers?

You can check your site with:
https://www.virustotal.com
http://zulu.zscaler.com
http://dnscheck.pingdom.com
http://www.siteadvisor.com

To check if a website is hosted on afraid.org, go to http://freedns.afraid.org/ and enter URL in the box you see in top right box and then click Trace button. Any domain hosted on afraid.org can be used by other persons for dns hosting without your control. If it happened for your domain, it was misused for malicious purposes - in that case, when nobody has control on subdomains of domain (DNS hijacking), we block the whole domain in order to protect our users. For you, the solution is most probably only changing the dns hosting and letting us know later (www.avast.com/contact-form.php).

Well, difficult to say as "Latest URLs hosted in this IP address detected by at least one URL scanner or malicious URL dataset."
Some URLs are infected but the latest scanning returned clean.

It might also be there is another infection on your computer that brings this about.
Produce the logs asked for here: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53253.0
and a qualified malware remover may look into the matter.

Info to consider on one of the mentioned domains:
Re: htxp://booloo.com/popular/Teen/1.html
I see reports on IP for Blog Spam, DDoS, Email Spam, Forum Spam, Fraud Order, Hacking, Port scan, Proxy IP, SQL Injection, VPN IP reported.
See IP badness here: https://www.virustotal.com/en/ip-address/109.69.58.77/information/
See external links going here: https://www.virustotal.com/en/domain/n16.8-d.com/information/
and http://saopaulo.abongo.com/investigate/98.124.217.1/host

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Perhaps the issue has been dealt with by the appropriate ISP's and/or the companies themselves.  Neither have triggered an alert at this time.  Thanks for everyone's comments, I will save and peruse at another time.  Appreciate the help.
