Malware?

Today I tried to connect to malbe.nm.ru/chdk/, but I received the following message from my antivirus.
The same thing happens with grandag.nm.ru/hdk/ and ewavr.nm.ru/chdk/
Why?


Access to the data has been denied!
Warning: A virus or unwanted program has been found in the HTTP Data.

Requested URL:    malbe.nm.ru/chdk/
Information:    Contains detection pattern of the VBS script virus VBS/Dldr.Agent.DM

Generated by AntiVir WebGuard 8.0.13.0, AVE 8.1.0.37, VDF 7.0.4.9

Because CHDK is an open source project, most of its files are on free hosting sites.
These are commercial enterprises, and have ads and (at least some of them) links
to 'adult' sites. I suppose either of these two could be trying to collect information
from visitors through the VBS scripts that your antivirus is complaining about.
I suggest you try setting your browser to a more secure state by telling it not to
accept scripts, I personally use Firefox with Noscript and never have any problems
with these sites. Other browsers probably have their own ways of doing this.

hope that helps,

wim

Cannot say enough good things about FireFox + NoScript + Ablock Plus

http://www.mozilla.org/   (Firefox+Thunderbird email program)
NoScript - JavaScript/Java/Flash blocker for a safer Firefox experience! - what is it? - InformAction
Adblock Plus: Save your time and traffic
http://adblockplus.org/en/subscriptions  (for Adblock+, I use EasyElement+EasyList)

No pop-ups/unders, no adds, no flash, no downloads/drive-by's, etc... Some blocking support for German, French, Russian, etc. sites too.
