Using both Opera and Firefox, and always while administering a WordPress site, I have found my browser redirect me to a site called thebestantispyo.com, which purports to detect spyware on my computer. It appears to load a Windows dialogue box offering to remove a list of Trojans, and attempts to download something called Pack384.exe or the like. (Obviously I did not allow this to happen, and either pressed the Back button or closed the window.)
Is it possible that there is a security hole in WordPress which allows this exploit?
NB Running a full scan in my antivirus programme does not show any harm done by the redirection; but the mere fact of being redirected to a different site against my will is worrying. I am raising the issue with Kaspersky as well as in this forum.
