Site Security

Post by Chris » Tue Apr 02, 2019 2:46 pm

I have started to get security warnings, from my Norton Antivirus progam, about the Luxor4u website being unsafe. Each time I log in I get the message from Norton that it has blocked an attack by “Web Attack JS Coinminer download 56” I note that luxor4u is not https://www.luxor4u.com - does that it is not protected?

No idea what Web Attack JS Coinminer download 56 is, but definitely not from us :ni:

Web Attack: JSCoinminer Download 56
Severity: Medium
This attack could pose a moderate security threat. It does not require immediate action.
Description
This signature detects suspicious activities associated with JScoinminer
Additional Information
JScoinminer is a detection for a JavaScript cryptocurrency miner that runs in web browsers. The javascript coin miner consumes enormous CPU resources, making computer use sluggish. The JavaScript is loaded in the browser when the user visits a web page hosting the JavaScript. If you haven't opened the detected website on your own, you are possibly redirected to the detected website via redirection mechanisms like malicious advertisement or a compromised website hosting an iframe or JavaScript which redirects to the detected website. The JavaScript runs as long as the user stays on the web page. As long as the website being visited is injected with the coin mining javascript, the website will be blocked by this signature. The computer system is not actually "infected" when this detection triggers.
Affected

Various Windows platforms.

Response
The browser tab in which the detected URL is open,should be closed. User should avoid visiting the detected website. More information on browser-based coin mining is available at https://www.symantec.com/blogs/threat-i ... tocurrency

If you are a Norton user and wish to access a website blocked by Intrusion Prevention, please go through the exclusion process listed at https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/hom ... tail_en_us to exclude the Intrusion Prevention detection blocking the given website.

If you are an Enterprise Product user, please go through the exclusion process listed at https://support.symantec.com/en_US/arti ... 80883.html to exclude the Intrusion Prevention detection.

Recently I was getting a red Not Secure at the top when I logged on, but thought maybe it was because I had just been in Egypt last month using my other computer, though I had never noticed this after previous trips. Keefy reassured me with the same reply.
