    Default Risk Found??

    Seem to consistently be getting this warning from Symantec Endpoint Protection whenever I visit Eurodrivers. I'm trying to replicate on other sites, but it is only popping up here, and only started in the last maybe hour or so...

    Scan type: Auto-Protect Scan

    Event: Security Risk Found!

    Security risk detected: PUA.WASMcoinminer

    Looks like something on the site may be trying to get user's computers to mine cryptocurrency for them.

    In messing about I've had it happen 13 times now, and only on ED. Waiting for IT to walk in and give me ****

    Weird, I use Symantec at work and wasn't getting any messages. Kaspersky was giving me a message on my home computer though - now I just can't remember if it was ED or Vortex causing it.

    Just tried from my home computer again - it is Eurodrivers that comes up with the message. First time it came up was January 29th.

    Joke's on them. I'm always mining for myself when I'm just surfing the web. I'm already using all my processing power! lol
