Blackhole Toolkit website 5



There are concerns that a "false positive" for a computer virus is registering on Norton and a few other AV programs.
I recently launched a new image-based ad campaign and began to wonder if alerts I've been seeing are associated with those images. But I also run AdSense ads...

[SID: 24225] Web Attack: Blackhole Toolkit Website 5 detected.
Traffic has been blocked from this application: C:\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe


I have also heard that some Google AdSense ads have been "poisoned" - and that the Toolkit might be trying to gain access through the old yahoo MyBlogLog code (which I haven't yet deleted.)

Norton logged an IP address which I traced.

This could also be the work of code-snoopers and/or rogue bloggers like Lady Java or Windy working for Lainy.

Anyone else experiencing this?

  1. yes i do, i experienced it, but i can't say nothing more cause i'm looking for more information about that. I was visiting Wupload when recived the norton notice. The ip address (193.105.154.135) was located in Graz, Austria, maybe an IS proxy false. I'll switch to linux os soon or later, so no more problems with virus
    bye

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
