Avast anti virus is detecting malware in my Photobucket page..what do I do
Please and thank you
Are you saying your online Photobucket page? Is it targeting a specific photo? Please explain.
No specific image....just signed in and up popped the avast warning......
Tried with three different browsers...same action
Sounds like the site needs to remove the malware. I suggest you try contacting the web master and informing them of that. We can't remove malware from internet websites.
Thanks..I think will stay off the site for a couple of days to see if they fix the problem.
It's about all you can do. I take it that Avast is keeping you from getting on the site to even contact the webmaster.
Yes Avast is doing that.
Hopefully the webmaster will catch on as other people must be having the same experience...
Give me the url of the page that you can't access and I will contact them.
This is the link to my page
( Link removed now that PhotoBucket support has been alerted.)
Warning doesn't happen until after I sign in
I have emailed their support people and will remove the link now.
Thanks for all your help ...much appreciated. I will check it out tomorrow.
I would have posted a cool smiley but it is on my Photobucket page:-D
I have no idea how long it may take them to read and act on the email I sent, so have patience.
Just to update you, I have received an email indicating that they have received my email warning.
Yesss......I just checked my Photobucket and all seems well...no warnings,that is... so I guess they got to it right away.
Many thanks again for your help:wave
You are most welcome. Safe surfing.

Just a brief follow up. I have been speaking with Photobucket and they are of the opinion that it might have been an ad, as they cycle through the pages.
