Trojan is detected when I visit Programmers forum

When I visit Programmers forum my ESET Nod32 detects TrojanDownloader.Pegel.BH.trojan

I don't know when it started, as I visited the site today after staying off-line a few days.

Try to be specific.

We guess by your post you are using Windows and you are using which browser? Internet Explorer?

Of are you using Firefox or Chrome? If so, which plugin is detecting code?


What EXACT page are you talking about?

When I visit the forum you are discussing using Chome there is no error, warning and no code.

So, please be specific!

Also, "ESET Nod32" is kinda famous (like many Window's based antivirus tools) for producing false alarms.

For example, see this presentation:

False alarms

So, if anyone is running any of these "false alarm prone" anti-virus products, please post complete details including (at a mininum);

(1) The EXACT page you are seeing a warning (this means the exact link!).

(2) Your Operating System, Browser and AV programs (with version numbers).

(3) Browsing the forums as a guest or registered (logged in) user?
