No viruses? Find!

    Recently, he began to notice messages like “Hello! Spam comes from you in tons! Urgently check on the link goes further ". Usually I always clicked on “This is spam” and the message disappeared without a trace. The links in the messages are different.

    But today I jerked to see what it was. Details - under the cut.

    So, having copied the link to the browser, I went to the address, after which there was a redirect to the site , and the redirect is with the referrer (it’s not so important for us, but obviously it’s necessary for something).

    Well, the big green button with the words "Check computer" is callous. Of course, I could not resist. I was notified what will happen:
    Will be checked for:
    • viruses and malware
    • spam vulnerabilities
    • the ability to steal passwords

    Then we have the opportunity to read the user agreement in a small window, although I found a link to it at the bottom of the page. I'm not a lawyer, so I can’t comment, I’ll draw your attention to only one point that seemed interesting to me:
    2.4. The site does not guarantee the reliability of the results. Information on the Site is independently created by the Site Administration from open sources of information.

    Getting to the "scan". Here the fun began:


    Oh miracle! I have a virus in a dll file! On the way System32! And all this in ubuntu!

    Then a cookie check took place. It scanned a bunch of cookies that I carefully erased before opening this site. Even classmates were found. It should be noted that I am not registered on this site and I do not go there. Of course, there was also some kind of “virus”.

    Then there was a check of my ip for the fact of spamming. For a long time, looking for something, surprisingly, did not find it.
