  1. I have a question!

    Avast antivirus tells me that my website contains a trojan horse – JS:Redirector-YG[Trj]. It tells this when I open the site very first time in a browser, then afterwards it blocks it. But strangely when I download the whole website and scan it, it doesn’t find anything!

    The question is – WHY?

  2. Chris says:

    When you downlaod all the pages of the website locally, then any encrypted javascript remains “encrypted” – and won’t be recognised by virus scanners.

    Only when the script is run in the browser with active javascript engine is it decrypted and the active malware then detected when it tries to download malware to your computer or other dabgerous actions…

    Turning off javascript in the browser (with NoScript plugin for example) is a great way to protect yourself against most website malware.

    I checked your site and didn’t get any warnings. Google may have just needed some time to update.
