I uploaded some pdf files so they can be downloaded from my website.
But today when I tried to download one, my Mcaffee virus protection told me I have a virus in the pdf file.
I have some backups of these pdf files. I deleted the ones on the website server and uploaded the old pdf files from my computer (which I checked with the same Mcaffee Virus software and were fine).
When I tried to download the files again, it gave me the same virus message.
The web browser was able to open the pdf and view it without any issues, only when I try to download it the virus software kicks in and blocks the download.
How do I make sure there is no virus alteration of my files on the server, and how do I protect against my malware being attached to my files on the server without my knowledge?
Solved! Go to Solution.
@aiautomata, can you send a screenshot of the McAfee alert you are getting?
@aiautomata, looks like McAfee Web Advisor has marked your website as a dangerous website. It could be because of multiple factors, but you can dispute it with McAfee to get that removed.
@aiautomata, very strange I would have to say then. Especially if you ran the scan on the .pdf URL as well.
