Exclamation Forum Issue

Please Login to Remove!

Hi BlackBerryforums,

Today I visited your site from a customers laptop and Trend Micro blocked 2 files beeing dropped on the PC.

Further investigation showed an old JRE 1.6U15 as the entry point.

The page also seems to try and install what looks like Adobe Flash Player 11.3. I don't know if this is the real Adobe Flash Player installer or just a GUI for the virus.

After updating Java the site now tries to make the IE user accept/install/run "DeployJava1.dll" from "Oracle, America" instead.

One of the pages having the infection is this:
www . blackberryforums . com/bes-admin-corner/108139-contacts-lookup-bes-domino.html

I does however seems to be all or at least all of the post I have been reading.

Please look in to this issue.

Best regards,

It's not the forums, likely an ad. I do not receive these notices with AdBlock Plus installed in Google Chrome, nor do I receive them on my Mac.

Thank you for your report, like DC/DC mentioned it is much more likely to be an advert or the laptop is already infected with something else.

The site is Protected by Google Webmaster tools which constantly crawls for malware, issues, virus's, etc. and notifies me immediately.

I will report this issue to Google as well as Kontera incase on of their ads is infected. Were you logged in when the issue took place?
