Malware on Avlis.org?

PostAuthor: Li'll Divvil » Sat May 18, 2013 6:21 pm

Hey Team,

I just received the following warning from my anti-virus/anti-spam program when I tried to open the avlis website.

I never received any messages before and I haven't changed my anti-virus package either (avira).

"http://www.avlis.org/styles/subsilver2/template/forum_fn.js"
a virus or unwanted program 'HTML/ExpKit.Gen3' [virus] was found.

Could be nothing, could be one of those little java Trojans that snuck through, but I thought you should know.

Divvil

ps. yes I still troll the forums as much as I can even though I rarely can play

Weird... I opened the file in question and looked at the code. There's not much there and definitely nothing that looks like malware or anything bad in what its doing. Maybe it calls something that fits what your AV thinks is characteristic of malware?

I got a warning on a page I was gonna troll on, I just took it as a sign I should not do said trolling.
As the size of an explosion increases, the number of problems it is incapable of solving approaches zero.
