  • Malware Warning

    Is anyone else getting a Malware Warning on the Latest Acquisitions Thread? This is what I keep getting ......

    There are no such links by which access to that site can be gained, Dave, but LRB's last post in Latest Acquisitions contains pictures hot-linked from there.

    I am detecting no active threats. I suspect they are the source of your alert simply because of the base url.

    LRB, you might want to do a scan if you went there to get your hot-links.

      While I have seen such warnings from sites listed as safe, no such warning is appearing from the hot linked photos of the box covers of those models. It may have something to do with the word China in the url link that is triggering the warning.

        No, Ron, it is not simply the word "China" at all. It is the specific source url that is on his malware list that has alerted, nothing more, nothing less.

        His list may be correct & ours is not, or vice versa. At some point in the future, it may be delisted from his, or added to ours.

        Malware detection alerts are not simply based strictly upon a countries name as a portion of a source url.

          Thanks Wes, if you're not noting a threat I will mark it as safe.

            Better safe than sorry, please remove images from my post, it is not that vital and anyone that cares has at least seen the images, please type in name of kit and scale and we can all not need worry.

            In the future I will not trust them beyond buying their models

            China is after all an unusual place.
            Life is change. Built models for decades.
            Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
            I didn't for a long time either.

              I ran a scan and found nothing ... Lot's of scary stuff like that from China though, like you said, better safe than sorry.

                    The images, thus their url's, have been removed, mates.

                      While the site itself was probably safe, some second and third party advertising can cause problems. Every so often, I will get warnings from sites listed as safe. It is usually an advertising links that cause those warning.

                      Some of those ads, such as one e-mailed from another reputable site, required numerous rapid Alt F4 to kill as it kept displaying message boxes with those dangerous response buttons wanting to continue.

                      There shouldn't be any third party ads connected to direct links to photos, but, anything is possible in the cyber world including the ability to embed malware links into the headers of the pictures themselves.

                            If you don't mind that everything that you do using the Internet is being stored in the Cloud on some Homeland Security computer for scanning of key words and data mining purposes. No doubt, your own Government is also doing something similar.

                            For us Americans, It's no different from using a credit card, shopping at a Warehouse Club, watching programs on cable TV or satellite using a cable box, using a cable enabled gaming system, talking or texting on a cell phone, driving one of the newer cars equipped with On Star or a black box, It's all being tracked and cataloged to a personal database on some Homeland Security server.

                            Have your internet security software installed and up to date, don't click on strange links or popups, don't click on e-mail links especially from those claiming to be from your bank or other service, and you will be just fine.

                            Any other restrictions will be from what your Government will allow you to do.
