I don't have photoshop tools so don't say,"Cool Editing, bro." I think GTAG has virus in it. That's why it is rated as a dangerous site. I think I am in the correct place. If not, move it to the correct section. Please don't say,"Stop this bullsh*t" and all. I just want to notice you all.

Please do something about this. Thank You.

EDIT: Please change that "s" into "as" in the topic title.

    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Considering The GTA Place seems to have the same red icon listed (is that what you're talking about?), I think it's more likely you have a rogueware infection. Does clicking the red icon take you to a website trying to sell you an "antivirus"?

Here is the report from McAfee (Click here): When we tested this site we found links to gtanet.com, which we found to be a distributor of downloads some people consider adware, spyware or other potentially unwanted programs.

This report is claiming that GTANet is distributing illegal stuff.

As for your question, yes, it directs me to the site.

It's time to get rid of McAfee and get a proper, working anti-virus.

Edit: haha, and just as I posted that, it seems even Avira is reporting a malware within GTAG.

I had to add it to the exceptions list manually.

Okay, had a look at that site - they think 2 files hosted at media.gtanet.com are viruses - presumably because they alter memory addresses and use hotkeys. Both are false positives (this happens a lot since antivirus companies increasingly try to automate detection - probably to cut costs).

I would email them about it - but I don't particularly care about improving their product, and they tend to ignore you and/or make the same mistake later anyway. wink.gif

What is this "we" stuff? You brought a team together to do a virus scan?

No, the reports says.

@Girish: I also have Norton and it isn't showing any danger sign. Too bad for your antivirus. tounge.gif

@STM: OK, then. This won't be any major problem now. Thanks for clearing this up.
