    Some of you folks, here, have probably didn’t see any activity from me. The problem was; this site had several malware and virus files embedded here. This was also happening to Robert’s site, only worse. There were three here, and at least 8 on Robert’s site. According to my detection software, it appears that they have been removed. I have warned the admin about this and hopefully it will continue to be successful in blocking other attempt to hack the site. We shall see.

    Greetings brother, I apologies for my absence.

    I received this information from Tim:

    "After performing several system checks, external scans, and reviewing system logs, I can find absolutely no indication of infections from malware and am going to conclude that whatever software Tsaphah was using to report 3 infections on your site and 8 at Robert's was giving false positives. I re-read his post and saw that he did say that the "infections" are gone now, but the server's change logs show no database or file changes which would support there initially being malware that was removed.

    Robert's site uses reputable anti-hacking and anti-malware software in the background that likewise is showing no suspicious activity.

    Both sites reflect a Good Reputation among the top 10 major malware-scanning services, with neither having any reports of blacklisting due to infections or hacking.
    "

    I have also thoroughly checked everything on my end as well, and have equally found no issues. I've used several differing devices without any anomalies. The only thing we can conclude is that something you are using is giving you information based on your own software, separate from anything on the server.

    All love brother...

    Thanks for the reply AJ. I trust my software. It seems that after I mentioned this problem, it went away on both sites. I haven’t had a problem with other sites, even the WTB&TS site. :)

    Hello I'm the Statesboro PC Doctor. I can recommend that you run Malwarebytes and remove anything bad that it finds also run CC cleaner. I actually had a problem with Jw.org it seems there are people on the web that do what's called a denial-of-service attack they intercept your attempt to go to the website and direct you to a known malware site. I'm sure it wasn't JW org that was the problem. But I got rid of the problem using Malwarebytes.
