    Default net-antispy-96.com Weird Spyware Problem

    Zone Alarm Extreme Security: 9.1.008.000
    Zone Alarm Force Field: 1.5.53.4
    Windows XP SP3
    Firefox: 3.6

    I go to a website listed in a Google search.
    It unexpectedly redirects to
    REMOVEhttp://net-antispy-96.comREMOVE <-- do not go here.
    "REMOVE" was added so it does not make a link.
    Firefox then shows a page which looks like a windows file explorer page which says there are viruses within specific folders. Then it puts up a "Windows Security Alert" window which may or may not be legitimate.

    What is going on here?
    ZoneAlarm does not give any alerts.
    ZoneAlarm scan of C: drive in normal mode shows no virus.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, normal.. its a fake page simulating a virus. Not malicious up to when you allow an exe to install.
    Most infections nowadays works like this. Triggered by ignorance. Do not beleive any virus warning unless come from ZA. ForceField will do the rest, first warning you about the site (yellow band), secondly avoiding hidden executables to install.
