PC security analysts have noticed that some security programs may indicate HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen threats whenever computer users try to visit particular websites. In many cases, HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen alerts are false positives. However, HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen may be quite threatening, depending on the circumstances. Because of this, PC security analysts strongly recommend that PC users take actions to safeguard their computers and avoid certain websites if their security software indicates the presence of HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen or similar problems.
What are the Consequences of a HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen Detection
The HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen detection may indicate that the website the computer user is visiting may have attempted to load an external script that may be suspicious. Probably, this wasn't the situation; however, in most instances it is usually better to be safe than sorry. PC security analysts strongly recommend using a good security program to protect your computer when browsing the Web and to maintain it always up-to-date. Malware researchers are constantly receiving reports of false positives and new compromised websites and updating their security accordingly to maintain detections like HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen relevant to computer users' needs.
What Usually Happens in an Attack Involving HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen
An attack involving a script like the one detected as HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen may try to run a corrupted script stealthily without the PC user being conscious of what's going on. When the computer users visit a website, a script in the website may try to direct their Web browsers to another website automatically. This other website may contain an exploit kit designed to take advantage of known vulnerabilities on the targeted computer in order to install threats or execute threatening code on the affected computer. PC security analysts have also noticed that these types of scripts may use various different techniques to upload compromised files to visitors' computers. Essentially, the HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen detection could potentially indicate any attack involving these kinds of scripts. The script may load an attack website, direct the computer user to a new location, reference a suspicious advertisement or pop-up window, or attempt to install tracking cookies or other dubious material automatically.
Why HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen may be a False Positive
Since the HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen detection may appear when a website tries to run an external script that is not approved, in some cases, this may lead to a false positive detection. Most websites may run scripts that function similarly to HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen to display advertisements or to provide some kind of functionality. The fact is that these types of scripts may be essential to run a website that is successful and accessible. How false positives and HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen attacks differ is in what the external website, code, or file in the script actually do. In some situations, it may be nothing more harmful than an advertisement while in others it may actually be a threat infection.
Protecting Your Computer from Attacks Like HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen
There are actions you can execute to ensure that your computer is protected from HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen and other threats or corrupted scripts. The following are some basic steps to ensure that your PC is safe from these types of attacks:
- If you browse the Web regularly, your computer should be protected at all times with a strong security program that is fully up-to-date. Computer users should run scans regularly and download and install any updates for your security program.
- Use other security programs such as a well-configured firewall, anti-spam filter and protection for your router and network.
- The most important thing you can do to prevent any attacks, including HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen scripts, is to follow common sense browsing guidelines. Stay away from websites that may be regarded as unsafe (such as file sharing communities or pornography), never open unsolicited email attachments or unknown embedded links, and never download or execute files unless you're absolutely sure of their contents and source.
Security Doesn't Let You Download SpyHunter or Access the Internet?Solutions: Your computer may have malware hiding in memory that prevents any program, including SpyHunter, from executing on your computer. Follow to download SpyHunter and gain access to the Internet:
- Use an alternative browser. Malware may disable your browser. If you're using IE, for example, and having problems downloading SpyHunter, you should open Firefox, Chrome or Safari browser instead.
- Use a removable media. Download SpyHunter on another clean computer, burn it to a USB flash drive, DVD/CD, or any preferred removable media, then install it on your infected computer and run SpyHunter's malware scanner.
- Start Windows in Safe Mode. If you can not access your Window's desktop, reboot your computer in "Safe Mode with Networking" and install SpyHunter in Safe Mode.
- IE Users: Disable proxy server for Internet Explorer to browse the web with Internet Explorer or update your anti-spyware program. Malware modifies your Windows settings to use a proxy server to prevent you from browsing the web with IE.
