It was not more than 2 days which yandex started to send me emails telling that my blog is infected by malware
Some of the pages on your website may pose a threat to your visitor’s computer security. The number of potentially harmful pages is 2. You can view the details of our malware scan at http://yandex.com/infected?
And I got worried because yandex is a considerable source and started checking my blog for any type of infections such as index.php exploits (this happens about 95% of the time) and ran many virus checks to see any infections and nothing exciting was found.
And when i was crawling through internet I found this great tool called VirusTotal which lets you to run your web site through various online infection databases and return the result. And it reported that this blog is also got blacklisted on Opera web browser.
And few minutes later I have received a email from my reader saying that they cant access my blog using opera
when i click in your HOME buton in your blog, opera browser block your blog as unsafe. u better check your blog about vulnerabilities or infections
And when I was searching about this problem I also found that Opera use yandex as its analysis provider.
Actually what I’m worried about is that opera reports my web site as phishing site, considerable amount of people use opera web browser and so it will prevent them from accessing my site and its creating a black spot towards me. just think, most of people wont ever visit my web site again if their browser reports its a phishing site right?
I have used yandex web master tool (which is like google webmaster) and it reports that malware is on 4 pages. One page is my insanely popular post about unlocking huawei modems. http://www.ruchirablog.com/activating-voice-calling-on-huawei-hspa-modems/ and it contains some files and over half a million users used it and none of them complained it got malware or some types of viruses.
Yandex uses sophos as the partner for this web page analysis and this raises a big question towards the accuracy of spohos!
