Dodgy gif?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Moments ago, I was reading through http://www.arrse.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=144861/postdays=0/postorder=asc/start=20.html and was impressed with YIM's "BUMP" gif. Wondering whether this was something that could be developed for my own use, I right-clicked the gif, opened the "properties" and copied the first part of the URL into the address bar.

    Immediately, Avast identified a trojan attack.

    Is the gif dodgy? Does it have any effect on ARRSErs?



    Comments and debate, please, until msr comes up with the definitive answers...
     
  2. If it says so it will be at least 90% right .You do get an odd one now and again that the anti virus identifies as dodgy when in actual fact it wont be .Buy hey do you chance it or leavre it ?
     
  3. Main site is dodgy, not the gif itself. Could be a false positive anyway.

    The gif itself is not dodgy, but I would suspect that one of the 'sponsored links' on w w w . t a b 1 . d e is being identified by avast as trying to download a trojan.

    Google identifies it as safe: http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=www.tab1.de

    So does AVG: http://www.avg.com.au/resources/web-page-scanner/

  5. Google wasn't sitting beside me. Probably best if I stick to porn sites.
