    Default [Resolved]Dialog message keeps popping up (about "xmlrpc.php")

    Since yesterday, every 5 minutes a dialog from Zone Alarm pops up reporting the same file infected, over and over.

    Filename:"xmlrpc.php"
    Virus name: (empty)
    Risk: high
    Treatment: Treated
    Path is "http://qwertytraff.org/xmlrpc.php"

    The only action I can do is close the dialog. It will appear again after a few minutes, identical.

    Sorry if this is not the right forum, this is the first time I post here.

    System info:

    ZoneAlarm Security Suite version: 12.0.104.000
    ZoneAlarm license key: <...>
    Vsmon version: 12.0.104.000

    Antivirus signature DAT file version: 1131050432

    This is the Web scan protection while surfing.

    This is not a physical file on your PC you can fix up like malware instructions that were given.

    The site your trying to get to has malicious code on it thats why your getting that alert for a web address and being blocked from it.

    Make sure you have updated your AV so that you have the latest signatures.

    There not much you can do about this other than avoiding this website.

    ZA has probably saved you major headaches by blocking that site.

    Default Re: Dialog message keeps popping up (about "xmlrpc.php")

    I started getting the exact same message when I turned on my PC this morning without doing anything (hadnt even opened a program)

    It seems to pops up on every new page regardless of whether I use Chrome (Version 31.0.1650.63 m) or Firefox (25.0.1) or Opera (12.16). And then constantly pops up every 60 sec or so randomly. Even when a webpage auto saves the dialog box pops up!

    I did not install or alter any programs and this is extremely annoying. I have checked my software is up to date & scanned & rescanned without any difference. Please help?

    I use Win7 home premium 64bit

    The info of your ZA installation seems completely messed up with unsupported/deprecated parts and new parts together.

    I would suggest you fully remove ZA and all its component including running the dedicated removal tool afterwards and then install ZA again. (see here: https://www.zonealarm.com/forums/sho...406#post299406

    After that follow the direction in the Malware clean-up guidance to ensure you are clean of adware/spyware or malware. This includes getting your logs analysed at bleepingcomputer or spywarehammer. See here: https://www.zonealarm.com/forums/sho...an-up-Guidance

    Finally please note we are all users here, if you have a valid license you can contact, free of charge, the ZA technical support at the link in my signature. Once at the main ZA support site look for the live chat icon.

    Thanks,

    Have you done any of the steps suggested by several users above? if yes, which one? And what was the results? Which exact version of ZA are you using? Free version? Paid version? ZA antivirus? ZA Suite? ZA Extreme? It is up to date? Is your system up to date? Have you performed all the steps as detailed in the "Malware Clean-up guidance"?

    Whenever posting in an existing thread please at least explain if you have followed already the solution proposed and which was the result. More information you post more likely other users here will be able to help otherwise your posts will be likely be ignored or removed as been offtopic.

    Thanks,

    Hi Fax,

    Sorry, yes I have tried all of the above. The funny thing is that although the last four days have been pop-up ****, today the pop-up has not appeared. (famous last words)

    It could be that ZA has dealt with it or it is no longer considered a threat.

    Thanks
