Bogus trojan warning

CAR912 195 254 December 1, 2015 at 11:20 AM
Once last night, and once again today this warning popped up on slickdeals (but not on any other site). I had to reload the tab to get it to go away. The alert box was titled "pxserv3571.com"

Virus Info:
A Trojan horse, or Trojan, in computing is a non-self-replicating type of malware program containing malicious code that, when executed, carries out actions determied by the nature of the Trojan, typically causing loss or theft of data, and possible system harm. The term is derived from the story of the wooden horse used to trick defenders of Troy into taking concealed warriors into their city in ancient Greece, because computer Trojans often employ a form of social engineering, presenting themselves as routine, useful, or interesting in order to persuade victims to install them on their computers.

A Trojan often acts as a backdoor, contacting a controller which can then have unauthorized access to the affected computer. The Trojan and backdoors are not themselves easily detectable, but if they carry out significant computing or communications activity may cause the computer to run noticeably slowly. Malicious programs are classified as Trojans if they do not attempt to inject themselves into other files (computer virus) or otherwise propagate themselves (worm).

A computer may host a Trojan via a malicious program a user is duped into executing files or browsing internet.

I'm currently running a full scan with System Center Endpoint Protection just to rule out that it's anything on my end.

Update: Scan completed, nothing found using virus definitions from 2015-11-30.

Got this today also. Had to reboot as I was not able to close the window, even when I tried to close it through task Manager. What gives????

Sorry for the inconvenience guys. We're looking into it and will block the culprit from ever serving here again.

Got this last week. Just popped up when I went into the "freebie" forum. Couldn't close window/tabs like the others. I have multiple sandboxes with this one dedicated to SD, so i'm sure it came from sd.

their inability to use decent AD servers...the redirect malware and other ads related crap has been a SD problem for at least 1 year..
just report them to google https://www.google.com/safebrowsi...t_badware/

once they are going to be blocked by several AV's MAYBE they'll be more proactive

400. That's an error.

Your client has issued a malformed or illegal request. That's all we know.
