Virus on this avast! site?
« on: August 26, 2007, 01:58:16 AM »
Last night when I tried to access this forum, I received a virus warning form avast!.  The log entry is:

8/24/2007 3:19:45 PM    SYSTEM    1804    Sign of "CVE-2007-0038" has been found in "xxxx://mediacount.net/strong/020sdsfg/324123.htm" file. 

I changed the http to xxxx to prevent it showing as a hyperlink.
Anyone else seen this?
Thanks.......John

A check of the Topic lists of forum search would have revealed a couple of topics relating to this attack, which saw the site taken down to resolve the issue and it is back on line.
