Trojan detected in Airnav forum
« on: April 17, 2012, 11:10:16 AM »
Last few weeks I've been getting Trojan warning messages when I open Airnav forum and luckily my internet security (Kaspersky) stops and blocks the page from loading and infecting my PC.
The latest warning I'm getting is for this Trojan: Trojan-Downloader.JS.Iframe.cwh.   I've scanned my computer twice and both times it comes clean.

But there are other variants: Trojan-Downloader.JS.Iframe.bzn and Trojan-Downloader.JS.Iframe.cdh
This is the information on Kaspersky site about these trojans:

"Technical Details

This Trojan downloads another program and launches it on the victim machine without the user's knowledge or consent. It is a Java Script scenario within an HTML document. It is 181 bytes in size.

Payload

Once an infected page is opened in the browser, the Trojan in a hidden frame attempts to open the resource, located at the following link:"

It's a Javascript exploit, Airnav may need to update java on their server and run a virus scan.

I found this on the net and may offer an explanation.  I certainly dont get anything from Norton.

Bogus Virus Threat
Unfortunately a recent update to the popular virus checker Kaspersky has branded all our Parish Record databases as a threat, with the following message - "object is infected by Trojan-Downloader.JS.Iframe.bzn" The files have been inspected and it is actually a case of Kaspersky being rather over cautious, because it can't read the address for our Iframe, which has been encoded to help protect the full database from being downloaded. A work around is currently being looked for, but be assured that there is not a threat from entering these pages, they have been carefully checked and only 2 out of 44 up-to-date virus checkers think there may be a problem.

The server is clean, no viruses on the forum or server. Don't worry.

As Runway 31 says there are a lot of cases now of false postives from Anti Virus software. Though some people would probally say better to be safe then sorry.

Can you please confirm that  avast! is the other virus checker showing the problem.

I have been receiving a "Trojan Horse Blocked" warning from avast! Web Shield for a few days now, although it does seem to be intermittent.

The infection is shown as HTML:Downloader-BY [Tri]

Many thanks

Hello

Avast has alerted to these when connecting to the forum occasionally over the last week or two. I thought it was a coincidence as it wasn't every time but as others have also been finding this I thought I would post them now. I have changed http to hstp so the links aren't clickable.

Norton Internet Security 2012 has come up with an attack blocker notice when I first come on to the forum - this is the history in case it helps.

Strange thing this thread starting when it did. I've had the same thing happening for a couple of weeks when I've opened up the forum, but with different Trojans
.
The remarkable thing to me is that I was about to report that I suspected the forum after I got another warning from Comodo again this morning but decided to run Malwarebytes first. This thread started while it was running!!

As I said, I have Comodo and Malwarebytes installed and both have found and removed Trojans several times in the past weeks but they have reappeared.  As I began to suspect the forum, I opened several others of my 'favourite' sites first this morning without any warning appearing. As soon as I opened forum again, one did.

Seems to me a bit more than a coincidence so many members are having problems. which appear to be linked to the forum.

Syd.

I don't get these errors/warnings on other forums I visit too.  Sometimes the Airnav forum will open without warnings, but if I open a thread, Kaspersky will give me "information" message that a Trojan was detected and blocked and the thread continues to load.

I have Norton 360 on one machine and Mc Afee on another and have not had any threats identified.

However i stay logged in all the time and never logout.

So is it only when people login to the forum that these threats are identified ?

I have had problems with my laptop for the last few days, since I opened this site and had a pop up which seems to have hi-jacked my machine.   I used to run Norton, but since this expired, and I changed from BT Internet to Orange, and had problems installed their freebie version of McAfee, I've not had any protection running - only myself to blame for that! - but there's definitely something interfering with things now.   If I open IE, sometimes the machine goes to various advertising sites and shuts down whatever I'm trying to access, my email is worst, which I'm not able to acces properly now.    I feel a re-format of HDDs and re-installation of Win 7 coming on, at least 2 years since I last had to do it, so that'll also get rid of an awful lot of crap!   Before this happened, RB program would act up, and won't let me highlight a particular a/c on the display, doing its own thing, going to any other a/c in the vicinity except the one I was trying to follow - anyone else had that?
