False positive?


Recommended Posts

Over last couple of weeks I can't access "https://www.limetorrents.info" due to Eset blocking it.

This popup is pretty vague, so is it possible to get more info about possible infection?

Also far as the Eset alert description goes:

Quote

HTML/ScrInject [Threat Name]

Detection created2009-07-11

World activity peak2012-01-30 (16.94 %)

Short description

HTML/ScrInject is detection of program code that redirects the browser to a specific URL location with malicious software. The program code of the malware is usually embedded in HTML pages.

https://www.virusradar.com/en/HTML_ScrInject/detail

As far as the URL referenced, https://www.limetorrents.info, it appears to be clean: https://www.urlvoid.com/scan/limetorrents.info/

Follow the procedure here to info Eset that you believe the URL detection is a false positive: https://forum.eset.com/topic/18734-how-do-i-report-a-false-positive-or-whitelist-my-software-with-eset/

Finally, I was just able to access https://www.limetorrents.info w/o issue in IE11. The site might now be unblock by Eset.

They load an external javascript from e9geolgzk6.com which looks like a generated domain name, probably an ad provider. For now we'll keep that domain blocked.

Thank you :)

" probably an ad "

Would it be dangerous for my computer to bypass Eset block since this is just some ad?

It's just my assumption because ad providers typically use generated domain names.

If you employ an ad blocker in your browser, you could probably still use the web site. As I posted previously, I received no Eset alert in IE11 which employs AdBlock Plus ad blocking when I accessed the site.

Thank you.
I just added an exception, went to the site and I don't see any ill behavior.

MBAM and MBAM browser extension keep quiet.
