To discuss anything which relates to the FLYER Airportal or the magazine
Over the last two or three days every time I connect to the Flyer site Avast has blocked something and comes up with this
Process: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox...
Nope, very fishy indeed. The .su domain is "Soviet Union" and hasn't been in use officially for some years. That particular domain is registered, belongs to a "private individual" (no more details available) but has no valid path to it. It sounds like a browser hijack to a site that's been taken down.
I reckon a check on your virus/malware protection is a priority.
Moderatio in omnibus
Did the internet even exist when the soviet union was around?
As Keef says plus in addition to Avast you could try Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
When I was using Avast I found it missed problems that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware picked up even after a definition update. After this I changed to the Mircrosoft essentials which seem to do the trick.
A boot scan is a very good idea as the minimum is loaded.
Thanks for all your advice - much appreciated.
I have Avast and Malwarebytes on my pc (as a result of forum recommendation of some time ago - what a great resource this place is)
It was Avast that was catching the rogue URL but I have since carried out full scans with Avast and Malwarebytes and found nothing.
Also, today when I logged into Flyer I didn't get Avast reporting the issue so whatever it was, it seems to have gone away. Nothing I've done I suspect.
Again thanks for your help.
