Re: Warning of Malware on Vivaciti web site

I've just been on this site with IE9, Firefox7 and Chrome15 and I use AVG2012 free edition which is up to date. There is no notes to say of any problems. It might just be either an over active virus checker or someone is trying to scare people away from the site.

nothing to do with virus checkers, google gives the warning through Chrome. Heres the diagnostic page

Yep google are trying to scare people away from the site.

I did copy and google the hex code at the end of the Home Page, that Matt mentioned. It appears as a large smiley face with "YO!" and a bit of odd stuff at the bottom.

Funny! I translated it as:

but then I'm not Google grin.

Looks like some detritus left behind by an HTML editor.

Where's Google come into it? You're not searching Google for Vivaciti so as to access it, are you? You said you were going directly from a link in their sig.

Up to this evening a Google search for vivaciti.net took you to their homepage, but now it gives you:
Warning - visiting this web site may harm your computer!
and refuses to take you there.

Whereas, at least since the start of this thread, a Google search for shersby.net tells you on the results page "This site may harm your computer." and blocks you from visiting it.

Google gives the warning whether you go direct or through a search

Start at \x3C\x69\x66\x72\ following the var _0x3f46 and end before the closing quote of that. Copy that long hex sequence into google.uk, and the first result link is
http://downloads.securityfocus.com/vulnerabilities/e...
giving you what I described, occupying more than a full screen. But I just noticed Norton also gave a warning about a malicious script, the first time I went to vivaciti after an overnight laptop switch-off, (not the second time), so perhaps I'm not seeing the nasty bit in View Source in IE9.
