My Friend's site has a virus.
« on: June 02, 2009, 08:22:53 PM »
My friend's site is hXXp://z3.invisionfree.com/SonicsMedia



I'm worried if AVG didn't block this. Then my friend might be in trouble.
Can you help my friend remove the virus?

Its an Exploit, so his Programs are probably outdated

Hi Donovansrb10,

At the root of the problem is a vulnerability in his zeus server software, that is renowned for xss-flaws,
