    Malicious Toolkit Website 9?

    Over the last few days Ive noticed that each time I log on to The Mouthpiece my Norton Security highlights an attack from the above name with the following IP address being identified 128.121.128.110

    Anyone else noticing this or is it just coincidental?

    Severity: High

    This attack could pose a serious security threat. You should take immediate action to stop any damage or prevent further damage from happening.

    I get the same (other than the IP address is 129.121.128.110 but that could be a typo)

    I use Norton and it comes up with the message

    "A recent attempt to attack your computer has been blocked".

    This happens the first time I log on each day, and has done so for over a week.

    My avast! AV picks it up too. I thought we'd made an announcement about this as it was reported to us a few weeks ago, but it seems we didn't. Sorry about that.

    I know John was looking into it - but don't worry, there is no threat to anyone's security from tMP. I'm sure as soon as John has a definitive answer, he'll let you all know.

    Avast and AVG both pick it up. I forwarded a screen capture to John, who's asked the server hosts to look into it.

    As long as my AV keeps catching it, I'm happy. It's when the warnings stop I'll panic...

    If only I knew how to program a piece of software that warns against his type of 'malicious activity' I'd reckon I'd make a fortune!

    Hi All

    I wanted to provide you with some assurance that there are no malicious scripts on tMP. Over the last few days, the admins in the data center where the tMP dedicated (not shared) server is housed have been running a series of scripts and tests to ensure the security and cleanliness of the server.

    Some of those tests are still running, but the initial sweep of tMP for virus's and malware and the admins sent me this result...

    ----------- SCAN SUMMARY -----------
    Known viruses: 937709
    Engine version: 0.96.1
    Scanned directories: 9099
    Scanned files: 126277
    Infected files: 0
    Data scanned: 2159.04 MB
    Data read: 3622.21 MB (ratio 0.60:1)
    ------------------------------

    I shall provide further details once the entire run of tests from the 5 or so days they have been running are available.

    We're clean

    My Norton is not happy with the site at the moment - Site is unsafe but then says there are no threats?
