Threat Bloocked
« on: June 07, 2021, 09:45:28 AM »
Good Morning,  We have an issue we were made aware of when a client was accessing our website, the error generated by Avast Free edition was

Threat Blocked
We've safely aborted connection on because it was infected wit Script:SNH-I-gen [Trj].

What is the best way of us approaching avast to get more information on this please?

We would like to ensure our site is not infected and is not pulling up false positives

Many Thanks

Seems your Word Press website CMS has 4 issues to look into.

Two plug-ins to update a.s.a.p.:    elementor 3.1.4   Warning   latest release (3.2.4)
wordpress-seo 16.3   Warning   latest release (16.4)

Configuration settings wrong:  User Enumeration
The first two user ID's were tested to determine if user enumeration is possible.

Username   Name
ID: 1   springo   springo
ID: 2   mike   Mike Garcia
It is recommended to rename the admin user account to reduce the chance of brute force attacks occurring. As this will reduce the chance of automated password attackers gaining access. Take note that if the author archives are enabled it is usually possible to enumerate all users within a WordPress installation.

Website connection insecure by default: At least 10 third parties know you are on this webpage.


-  is ad-blocked for me in the browser.

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)!
