JS:Redirector-BMU [Trj] threat notice on ebay

Recommended Posts


I'm new here been using Firefox for a number of years. I have a computer with Windows 7 using Firefox Quantum 63.0.3 (64-bit). I use free home version of Avast.

This happens only at ebay.com when I click on the 'login' from the main site (www.ebay.com) Avast sometimes comes up with the message 'Threat secured We safely aborted connection to www.ebay.com because it was infected.

However i can indeed sign in and use ebay normally.  Malawarebytes detects nothing wrong with my computer.

I've tried everything including a complete restore of my computer. I tried another new computer and it gives same message on firefox with Avast.

Do you think this is a false positive with Avast?

I called Ebay support they said to stop using Firefox! I want to continue using Firefox so please someone with knowledge or experience with this please respond. I did a lot of research on this and it appears people who use Avast or AVG seem to have had the same problems with ebay over the years with this JS: redirect in one variation or another.

I've attached a pic of the Avast message I get when I login to ebay.

I took the url listed by Avast (https://www.ebay.com/rdr/js/s/rrbundle.flat.min.js) and put it into VirusTotal.com and the attached response is what I got.

...does that mean it is something only peculiar to Avast and AVG as those 2 are not listed as scanning this but no negative results from the 70 or so other scan engines and does this mean it might be a false positive?

Again, Malawarebytes detects no threats on my computer!

Thanks for any and all help.

BTW, there is a thread on this on the ebay community forum:
