Ransom.A warning on website - please confirm


Recommended Posts


Whenever I visit this website. ~ Url removed as is serving up exploits~

I get two warnings from Malware Bytes saying that Ransom.A trojan is detected and two .tmp files are on my PC and are quarantined.

Please can someone check this urgently since just about every malware site checking service say that this site is clean.

Hi Mark,

These are not False positives!

The website you have reported is serving up a driveby download of trojan code via a Java exploit.

Malwarebytes realtime protection in this instance is blocking the trojan install :)

If you upload the files that we are blocking in the temp folder to a file checking service such as VirusTotal


You will see slowy the AV's confirming the files to be trojan code in the coming days.

Here is a VT file report on a file that the java exploit tried to infect my computer with when visiting that website a moment ago.
