  • PhPBB Cookie Admin Virus?!?!?!

    I personally own vB.
    Several sites I host have not yet learned their lesson.

    One PhPBB forum in particular. Everytime an ADMIN logs in from IE, Avast Anti Virus goes nuts. Log in in Firefox & go scan your pc from Trend Micro & it will find a virus in the cookies.

    Well, I guess you GET what you PAY for.

      I run about 15 phpBB web sites, and none of them give me this issue.
      Do you have any bugtraq info about this?

          Just because your AV software wrongly identifies something as a virus (false positive), it doesn't mean that it is a virus. If anything it should be classed as malware or a tracking cookie - perhaps even because of a domain or subdomain mismatch due to incorrect forum configuration or a bug.
