      Re: Java/Spy.Statistic.A trojan

      I have just done a complete Virus Scan of our dedicated server, which hosts this website only. There is absolutely nothing to report. (We use NOD32 as well)

      I notice the link given is an RSS feed so I have no idea unless like you said its a false positive.

      sounds like the trojan is on your pc within C:\Program Files\Flock\flock\flock.exe seems a common [problem if you look up on google

      Well I'm not getting the message now even when clicking the link in the message . Very strange but one of those things I suppose. Carried out a full virus scan of my own laptop and it came up clean as well.

      Re: Java/Spy.Statistic.A trojan

      I did, yes. Its strange because I've not had it before or since. I know that Eset is sometimes prone to false positives. A recent version of Rainlendar had alarm bells ringing every time I booted up, but that was also the same for other users with Nod. I've also come across a few other files in the past that once submitted come back as false.
      Anyway I submitted to Eset so we'll hopefully find out in a few days what, if anything, it is.

      Re: Java/Spy.Statistic.A trojan

      It's a weird one.

      Google blocks listings with anything that is malicious, Digital Spy had all their listings blocked the other month.

      And as for the site itself, from McAfee Site Advisor we have a green, so pretty sure it ain't our end.
