We have an online support forum for families touched by Autism. Recently, we hired a company to develop an ecommerce site around our forum. The new site is not ready yet and is still under development. I only mention this because the new site is built on the same platform (WP) and of recent we have had a LOT of new users that have registered. It is obvious that many of these users are spam based on the user names and email addresses. My concern is that when I went to the forum recently after installing Avast Anti Virus software, I was warned the following:
avast! blocked you from visiting an infected webpage
Process: file://F:\Program Files\Internet Explore...
Infection: js:Downloader-gen@bhv [Expl]
Although none of the new users have posted anything, is there a way that they could have placed a virus on the site?
Is there a way to limit the amount of new Spam users that we get?
Any help whatsoever would be a greatly appreciated!
Please let me know if you need the URL to the site.
