files.wordpress.com Serving malicious content?

  1. Hi,

    I just visited my blog after ages and noticed some of my headers are triggering a malicious URL warning.

    I went to write a blog post with a screenshot, I noticed all of the images served from files.wordpress.com (actually eksith.files.wordpress.com) are being blocked with an AV warning.

    My Antivirus is Avast and I haven't had issues with false positives before, which I truly hope this is.

    Does anyone else have the same problem?

    The blog I need help with is eksith.wordpress.com.

  2. I've gone through your site's media and didn't locate anything unusual, so this looks to be a false positive from Avast. I've contacted them asking to remove the warning or to provide a little more information about what's of concern.

    I'll let you know as soon as I hear back.

  3. Thank you so much!

  4. I've just heard back from Avast that this false positive should be cleared--can you let me know if you're still seeing that message?

  5. @pcrumm-check out the "avast" tag. A few other members reported up to and including July 7.

  6. Hi,

    I updated my virus definitions just now, and it's no longer showing up on my blog, but strangely, it's showed up on a blog that had reblogged me :

    http://roshansony.wordpress.com/2013/07/07/bank-of-america-bot-cares-about-you/

    It looks like the false positive still continues on some subdomains, but not others?

  7. Hi there - they cleared the URL for your site, but possibly not for this one. Can you please contact them directly about this here: http://www.avast.com/contact-form.php?loadStyles
