Hello,

I own and operate the website http://crossbowfilms.net. Its working fine right now. On my computer I can open it up with no issues and google tells me that the website is virus free. BUT when a friend of mine tries to access the website he gets a virus message that says.

Access has been blocked as the threat Troj/JSRedir-GS has been found on this website.

I am working on a Mac and using Chrome. My buddy who got the virus message is working on a PC and using internet explorer and FireFox.

My website did have a virus about two months ago. I completely deleted the entire site and started over. So Im not sure if the issue is that the internet thinks the virus is still on there or what?

As a PROUD geek my self, any help the geeks can give would help!

Sounds like the problem is on your friends computer, possibly with some software he is running that is throwing a bogus malware alert. Have your friend start a thread here or post in this thread and we can take a look to see what is going on.

Thanks for your reply.

If its his computer. Im not really worried about it... I just was hoping everyone is not getting that same message. If anyone is on a PC could you visit the site and see if you get a warning? I have not had anyone else say there was but I just want to double check.

So did I and I did not receive any warning at present

Suspicious activity was reported twice in the last 90 days, but not at present

The only caution I received on my checks was that wordpress was out of date - which if it is correct, is of course recoognised as a weakness for the security of the site

Thanks guys for taking a look! I really appreciate the help!

I just had another person tell me they got a warning when accessing the site. I think it must be a residual warning. Maybe their browsers have not cleared the site yet.... or something.

It just seems weird that some computers are having issues but not all....


Does anybody have any advice for making sure websites stay virus free? Im VERY new to this website thing...

Thanks again for all the help. This is the first forum I have found that is actually useful!

HUGE THANKS!!

I would suggest having the people that are getting the warning to clear the cache, browsing history and maybe even flush their dns to be sure. If it is one of these then the warning would go away one the steps were taken.
