Hmm, thought it looked right up my street so followed the link and Avast immediately blocked it.

Eh?

On the off chance you're actually being serious (!) I should point out that I spotted the original article and link on the Telegraph website so it's safe, kosher and 100% wife/employer friendly!

It looks like it is due to some code on the sites which is, or resembles, a browser jijack.
Avast flags it as JS:Injection-A [Trj]
and a quick Google http://stackoverflow.com/questions/34176949/avast-gives-error-of-jsinjection-atrj-on-my-website

AV software does tend to do that every so often. McAfee has in the past blocked sites I am sure are OK, including our local parish church and Olympus magazine. Still, better safe than sorry, eh? It's all part of being a dull man. :D

I was being serious (for once!). Oh well, the odd false positive helps to show the AV is doing something I suppose. I'll take the easy way out and have a look on another system.

Although I think you should be more embarrassed about being on the Telegraph's page in the first place .... :D

Yes - I did wonder about admitting that! Someone else sent me a link, honest, guv :eek:

There is definitely something odd about that page. I tried it on a different system and got redirected all over the place!

There's something there to interest everyone, Mark. Re AV software, aside from Windows security essentials, the cheapest way of avoiding malware is to stop visiting dodgy sights! :D

Indeed, as mentioned earlier, Avast flagged it as a potential browser hijack.
It may be that the hijack only effects some browsers, but I'm not going to bother trying to find out

Thanks Bill, I followed your link earlier but was none the wiser I'm afraid - the technology is far too new for my ageing brain! I just decided to try it on an old system and see what happened, and it was a bit peculiar.

I had one the other day myself. I installed ImgBurn, an excellent piece of software for burning CDs, and must have missed a check box somewhere, as all sorts of crap came with it.
I can recommend Malwarebytes (https://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/) as a free scanner to use on a regular basis.
It's a different beast, and not a substitute for Anti Virus software.

There is definitely something dodgy going on there. I got the old tablet out of mothballs (because I don't care if it gets trashed) and tried it on the Android native browser and got redirected all over the place. I've tried googling for info about hacks on the site and not found anything - it has clearly been around for some time so could have been hacked very recently.

Just goes to show that it's not only dodgy sites that can cause problems!

And thanks Bill for the recommendation for Malwarebytes, I'll take a look.
