    My index page is infected with a trojan

    For some reason, I just started noticing that everytime I go to my homepage, McAfee pops up saying a trojan was detected in my temporary internet files. The filename it gives is a random combination of letters and numbers with no file extension. This doesn't happen on any of my pages except for my homepage.

    Can someone else please confirm this? I can't seem to figure out what the problem is and I don't even know if it is just me or not.

    This happens with the latest version of VirusScan with Windows XP and IE6. This does not happen when I use the Mozilla browser ... only in IE.

    Please help me figure out what's wrong here. Thanks guys.
    My website URL is

    I would like confirmation from someone else using McAfee and from someone else using Norton Antivirus, please?

    I think it may be this bit of code right here:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function log_out()
    	ht = document.getElementsByTagName("html");
    	ht[0].style.filter = "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(grayscale=1)";
    	if (confirm('Are you sure you want to log out?'))
    		return true;
    		ht[0].style.filter = "";
    		return false;

    Try removing that entire <script></script> tag and seeing what McAfee says.

    Either that, or it may be the URL that one of your members posted that is showing up on your homepage:

    http:// %68%6F%6D%65%70%61%67%65%2E%63%6F%6D%00@ %77%7 t7%77%2e%65%2d%66%69%6e%64%65%72%2e%63%63/%68%70/

    McAfee might be recognizinghe decoded URL:

    (DON't CLICK)

    It probably sees that URL as spywere or a virus, and that might be your problem.

    Hope this helps .

    Hey there! Thanks so much for the feedback. I don't think it's the JavaScript because that is vBulletin's default logout script that has been on the site for ages. Since I do run security/trojan forums, it might very well be that http:// code. That would explain why it suddenly started happening without me changing anything. I'm going to go edit the person's post and see if that fixes the problem! Thanks so much :-D

    You were right ... that URL that a member posted was the problem The darn member was saying "look this URL infected my machine" and meanwhile by posting that, they were infecting us! I edited the URL and all is clean now. Thanks again.
