Shit happens, any website displaying advertisements risks to have, some day, bad guys shown by the network ads. Or a component of a website may become compromised by security holes freshly exploited. Hentairules is no exception, sadly.

This is why I will be EXTREMELY grateful if you can help me with virus warning reports ! :)

The minimum requirement is to send me an email to provide me with your browser name, your OS, and a screenshot of the virus warning you’re getting.

If you’re unfamiliar with the way to take a screenshot, it’s easy, there are Windows/Max/Linux programs taking it on demand, or else you can install a browser extension to take it (Firefox or Chrome).
Or else, you can do it the hardcore way with MS-Windows : hit the PrintScreen keyboard key when you want to take the screenshot, open MS-Paint (hit the win-R key combo, type “mspaint”), in Paint hit the control-E key combo and enter the size of your monitor, then hit the control-V key combo, then hit the control-S key combo and chose jpg output.

I may be unable to reproduce the virus attack you’ve had (either my AntiVirus doesn’t see it, or else it’s a geotargetted virus leaving me in peace), so PLEASE, really PLEASE, I’d need your help in finding, precisely, where it’s coming from.
The solution to do it is a bit complicated, don’t force yourself if you don’t have enough geek atoms inside.
– first, open Hentairules and get the virus warning.
– then ask your browser to give you the source code of the website.
– then open your favorite text editor (not Word, a simple text manager, like Notepad or Notepad++ for MS-Winwows OSes), create a new text file, and paste inside it the code source you just obtained
– save that file as 1.html to a folder on your hard disk
– to make sure, open 1.html inside your browser : it should open a weird copy of Hentairules, and also trigger the virus warning
*** Now we’ll track which part of the source code calls for the virus ! ***
– with copy, cut and paste, create a new text file with the first half of the code of your 1.html file, and another new file with the second half of the code of 1.html. Save them as 2.html and 3.html
– Open 2.html in your browser, if it doesn’t trigger the virus warning, then it’s 3.html that should trigger it. If none of them triggers it, hit F5 with each of the pages a few times. You should find which of these two files will trigger the virus warning.
– And then again, you divide the culprit file in two halves (for instance 2a and 2b.html), and so on, and so on, until you have a very small html file responsible for the virus warning !
– ideally, that final virus-causing file should contain just a few lines of code, allowing me to see precisely what item within my website is calling for a virus attack
-> and then, please send me that html file with your screenshot and the description of the problem. This way, I’ll know who to complain to (“hey ad network, kill that advertisement at once !”), or what to fix (if it’s a hacked blog component, it happened twice already).

Thank you VERY much if you can help me, I’ll be really grateful :)
