Each time I open an A2K page the Kasperky A-V monitor pops up with:

Quote:
Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\8XIBSD27\hp2[1].thm

Infected by virus: Exploit.HTML.Mht


Bad news, or dreadful news? Or has someone been contracting out your coding to Gus again?

Clear your cache, you have low-level exploit code in there. Then go to the computer forum to get help for whatever ya got going on on your puter.

Placid, gimme an update please. Seems like it might have been bad html in on an ad network and I am trying to hunt down the problem.

I shut off a network and need to know if that stopped it.

I've got dozens of networks and thousands of advertisers to go through so help is appreciated.

I'm out of my room today, but I'll see if I can get in there long enough this afternoon (OZ time) and find anything relevent from the cache.

I am not having the problem any more if that's what you mean. It had stopped yesterday.

This probably is nothing of interest, when I check the temp internet files on my PC for the time I was accessing A2K there are a number of items mixed in with them.

There's some html for a BURSTnet ad with a prefix of:

http//view.atdmt.com/AVE/iview/brstn

and a ref to: map.cgi/BCPG25834.46229.50543


PS. what the hell is PHPNuke? Sounds rather nasty.

Yeah, Gozmo sent me a lead that enabled me to get it. It was a tricky Javascript, bad enough but not even a big enough risk for AV programs like Norton to alert on anything.

Those are a different network that was not related.

PHP Nuke is a CMS/Portal software, basically it's a software that allows the publisher to more easily publish their site, think of it like a blog software or something.

It's not a baddie but we don't use them anyway. Many sites do, it's the most popular CMS software.

hmmmmm, sounds like you might have fixed the problem the lad was having. when I was visiting him, his system was getting some funky messages whenever I came here. Not going to any other sites. It was odd.

Thanks for the 'splanation Craven. My level of html and networking knowledge is roughly "Ogg hit rock with rock. Make fire. Sometimes bang finger. Hurt".
