Avast says site has virus

  • #1

    My virus scanner warns me that the site has mallware on this url (probably a banner):

    In what way does Avast think it is "harmful"?

    Which page are you seeing the warning on?

    Which avg program are you using?

    I tried viewing the link you posted, just shows as a complete black page to me sorry.

    I installed the freebie version of Avast and so far haven't had any warnings on either Chrome or Firefox on Chess.com

    I use Avast and am using Chrome and I havent had any problems as yet.

    Don't tell my girlfriend there's mallware here. She'll want to shop and I'll have no time for chess.

    I've never had any virus warnings here.

    Nothing wrong here. 0/10 risk rating (not that I know what risk it's referring to).
