Virus?

Postby MessEleven » Mon Feb 11, 2013 9:14 am

When opening the site this morning, the server tried to launch an .exe file, possibly a virus. This could be the source of the problems here every time it goes "Account Suspended." Good thing the newest version of IE catches these attempts, and I have Norton to block them.

Time to do a complete scan on your server...and then change hosts. This one's not too great.

I'll say this one more time. I was hit with another intrusion attempt when opening this site this evening, and Norton blocked it. Your host needs to do a comprehensive scan asap.

It's weird, John. Sometimes it happens and sometimes not, so I can't provide much help.

I have not had that happen at all, at work or at home. We have Norton here at work and I have NOD 32 at home.

Not sure what you are seeing.

Anyone else see this?

Might be because the server is whitelisted on one provider which might be his and his Norton is picking it up as a spamming server. Just a I just did a look up. Best help i can give you. Sorry can't provide much more help.

Let me know if you are still having any problems. After a few days of scouring all of the files, I believe everything is working.
