Dear Dave,

Interesting. What was the alleged attacking species ? Were you clicking on something specifically at the time ?

No. When I type www.ifsqn.com and hit enter. Site was getting open and my antivirus system was blocking a virus. Some details of this virus can be viewed from my screen shot

Thanks Dave, that was really helpful. The file did have a nasty iframe code in it, but it was useless as the rest of the folders and files it was trying to communicate with have already been cleaned from the site a week or so ago. I have removed this also.

As a result of this incident I have tightened up security again, changed passwords etc. I am also looking to get some software that emails me automatically if any file is altered or added to the server.

It’s a constant battle, so again thank you for reporting the issue it is vital to get this type of information.

Regards,
Simon
