    Default New software detects Archerytalk Virus?

    This could be a false alarm but I upgraded my antivirus software last night to norton internet security 2009.

    It blocks my viewing of archerytalk.com and reports the following.
    Accessing it results in Norton blocking a HTTP Malicious Toolkit Variant Activity
    Risk level is high

    I get this each time I try to view the site. Specifically it came up on this url
    www.archerytalk.com/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=3

    My gut reaction was false alarm until it showed up as coming in on TCP port 1685

    Here is what norton shows
    Severity: High
    This attack could pose a serious security threat. You should take immediate action to stop any damage or prevent further damage from happening.
    Additional Information
    This signature detect attempts to download exploits from a malicious toolkit which may compromise a computer through various vendor vulnerabilities.

    admins over there confirmed that a bunch of people are getting the warning. May not be a false alarm. Surfers beware.

    If it is in fact true that they have a trojan/virus, then it is on their server. Our server can't be infected by theirs, it doesn't work that way.

    It could still carry a trojan horse virus in the form of a embedded video or a link or even an attachment.... They have YouTube videos out now that you watch em and blam they got ya. Might not get the server that your on at the time but it will get the guy/gal watching it...

    Here's is just an example.... http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/obamavideo.asp

    I think they may have it fixed. Anyone with Norton want to visit and see if they still get the warning message.
