Jang.Com.Pk Under Malware Attack, Says Google

Google has this automated malware detection procedure to protect internet users from getting effected, which is now identifying Jang’s website as malware effected and every vistor is warned to not to enter website. Problem persists for more than 24 hours now, as it was first reported by Chorwangi yesterday evening.


Apparently, Jang webmaster has not been able to rectify the issue, as Google keeps on warning the vistors.

On information page, Google says that out of 543 pages that it tested on the jang’s website over the past 90 days, 10 pages resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent.

As we anticipate, Jang’s website is hosted on windows severs, hence more chances of automated mal-ware installation from third parties to damage the webserver. I am sure webmaster knows it and must be working on the issue – moreover he needs to request for re-view of website by using Google’s webmaster tools.

    I agree there must be some check so that user can be prevented from demage.

However I searched google and managed to remove the virus with help from Symantec website and immediately updated my facebook status to warn others from visiting Jang website.
