Yeah thats pretty much what happend to me I got redirected to that fake antivirus site when I clicked was the mail Icon on my att yahoo toolbar, I still figure that trojan I found the next day had something to do with it either it caused it or it snuck in when it happend?
For future reference I read that the best thing to do when you encounter this type of fake alert or virus is to open task manager and kill the iexplorer.exe process to make sure the browser can't be hijacked.
I can't remember exactly but I was listed as a Generic Trojan by AVG and was Located in the Tempory internet Folder so I deleted it outright knowing that it wouldn't cause any damage to my system losing this file.
There is nothing to post! Please see the attached screen shots of the popups. When I ran a complete updated scan, it reported that my computer was infected with "fake alert". As you can see from the attachments, there is nothing to delete, quarantine or hide.
Because Zimbra is mail server *.msg files are mails so there is probably infection in those mails.
Resident shield dialog is probably displayed after message was already sent, if you not sure about it follow How to handle false positive detection.
Please note that AVG free is not for commercial use.
If you use mail server on machine with AVG free, put mail server folders to Resident Shield - Excluded Items in Advanced AVG Settings and remove E-mail Scanner component.
I'm having this issue as well. It has occurred upon receipt of every new message ever since I last upgraded Zimbra to the most recent version last month. Since I receive about 30 emails a day on a single Yahoo! account, I'm rather overwhelmed with these false positives and am growing accustomed to hitting "ignore" every time AVG Free notifies me of a threat.
I as well am using Zimbra for personal use. I run Zimbra, Thunderbird, and Windows Live Mail Desktop clients continuously every day to check multiple personal email accounts.
