Malicious website

  • Hi just went to a website i usually use http://www.soccerstats.com and when you get to the home page then proceed to click on any of the countries leagues i am getting this, Malicious site warning,visiting this page may be harmful,it has been reported for distributing malicious software.

    The website is for getting soccer stats for all the leagues in case anyone is curious.

    Never had this on this site before this is the version of opera and seems up to date any input would be great thx in advance.

    Version: 28.0.1750.40 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 7 64-bit (WoW64)

  • Seems to be a False Positive warning.

    See Virustotal's url scan for malware at https://www.virustotal.com/de/url/4862136be2287c04b5e3f84f9b0e9be6763262fa4a3df6c050fcca7565331111/analysis/1426518889/

  • Would have nothing to do with version of Opera - it is a service provided to Opera. Probably their ad provider was compromised (you hear of malicious ads all the time) and that got the site listed. If the ad provider has discovered it and corrected the problem, then the warning will go away shortly. You do have the option to continue if you want ... if your antivirus is up to date and you don't click on any of the ads then you should be fine. (Never sure why sites like that seem to have so many ads for dating sites ... but those are a favorite of hackers, fake adult-oriented ads.)

  • I'm getting the same problem with Amazon UK. It says AVG is giving the warning. I'm going to try and get in contact with Amazon to see if this is true.

  • Thx for the replies guys appreciated.
