Question Web page security alarm - TBHP Website. EDIT : Solved

When navigating to any page on t-bhp, I have started receiving a security alarm from Trend anti-virus. The offensive URL listed is - "centiyo dot com/in.cgi?default" [PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO VISIT THIS URL]

Any one facing this? How could I report this to mods?


Note from Mods : This issue has now been resolved. Please see post #21 of this thread. Thanks

Seems to be some malware attack on all forums running on vbulletin forums. I just googled centiyo and found some vbulletin links where site admins are facing the same issue since last week.

There seems to have been a prolonged outage this evening. While browsing from my mobile device now I frequently get a message saying I've been disconnected, and it asks me to check my date and time settings. Never seen this before -- it's decidedly odd.

Hmm, I am not sure if it's related to this virus or not. But often at work, when I click a link let's say shifting-gears, the classmates.com ad takes up the whole screen without letting me do anything unless I refresh the site. And this happens only on t-bhp site. Hope it gets sorted out soon.

Firefox browser tends to be more secure than 'Internet Explorer'. For permanent relief, use Linux distro like Ubuntu. I am using Ubuntu since > 4 yrs now *without* any antivirus and have not had even one single malware issue till date.

Mates this security message is displayed even when some barred advertisement is displayed or a barred link is put up or even if the external link points to a site which has some other site linking to it.
there is nothing wrong with team-bhp.
but as for people, I think a very good antivirus should always be used.
