That would be a false positive, you know this for several reasons.

1. Weedmonkey, a staff member runs the site
2. Dozens of readers, writers, and staff members visit the site without incident
3. Trend Micro sucks

A crappy anti-virus. Probably the AV with the highest rate of false-positives of any av.

As an administrator of the Coverage Site, I can assure you there are no viruses/malicious links within the coverage website.

It is indeed true that Trend Micro generates an absurd number of false positives. In this case, Trend Micro's generating a false positive from the automatic redirect. The true site URL (and the one you should use if you get these sorts of issues, is http://weedmonkey.byethost11.com. neosystems set up an automatic redirect from putrid.leech.at to make it all pretty looking Smile[/url]

1. Regardless of who runs a site, it can contain malicious code. Whether that code was placed there by the site admin, or otherwise, is irrelevant.

2. The vast majority of users would have no idea if their box was rooted and part of a bot net. "Without incident" is a meaningless notion.

3. All signature based anti-virus sucks. It has been proven time and again that it takes about 2 hours for a moderately skilled programmer to obfuscate malicious code such that it is invisible to signature based anti-virus.

4. Most of you probably don't even have a firewall on "low" security running on your home network. You can be owned at any time by virtually any 14 year old nerd in the world.

Deal with it.

1. Perhaps it'd mean nothing if it was some careless admin, but it's Roo who checks the code daily, so yes it does mean something.

2. At least 100 people sign on daily to Magic-League, a great deal of them read through the site and look at the coverage, out of all these people it's a pretty good bet one of them would notice if they caught a virus. Not everyone is as stupid as you seem to think they are, the vast majority of us actually know what we are doing.

3. All signature based anti-virus sucks, but Trend Micro really sucks, it's at the bottom of the "shitty software" barrel.

4. This isn't actually an argument to your 4th point, I just wanted to add that you sir are a tool. You pick an argument for no reason to sound smart or whatever and really all you did was sound obnoxious. Thanks for playing.
