Alert pop-up meaning
« on: May 26, 2012, 07:17:54 AM »
Can anyone tell me if the pop-up I received means that the virus was blocked or that my computer was infected with the virus. Please refer to the attached picture and let me know. Thank you.

@OP I see why the image might not be showing.. It is ".Jpeg" under attachments it says "Allowed file types: txt, jpg, gif, png, log
Restrictions: 4 per post, maximum total size 192KB, maximum individual size 200KB"   as you can see jpeg isn't listed o.o

well at least im not totally lost about the jpeg, but does the picture i displayed mean im infected at all cause im not sure. Ive used many other versions of avast on windows back when i had windows that is, but on a mac its still very new to me and usually it says something like "blocked threat" or "stopped download" but the free avast for mac just has a very vague message system i guess. Why couldnt it just say "stopped potential threat". Guess thats too straight forward.

since this is on a Mac i guess the program is a bit different.... i have no experience with it

but it say the webshield detected a iframe at that URL....however as you see from my links above the site is down
also whatever malware was/is located there.....may not be designed for Mac   ::)

you can always run a quick scan

I've always been taught to save as PNG! ;)
