    Steve - Possible bad link in FAQ article

      FAQ article http://forums.adobe.com/thread/390605 may have a bad link... well, a link to a site that may be bad

       

      The 1st link in your Aug 25, 2009 posting is blocked by Norton as being a "known malicious web site"

       

       

      Does your anti-virus show the same thing?

          John T.,

           

          Do you mean the link to Koyotesoft?

           

          Somewere amongst the cobwebs of my brain, I seem to remember another user getting a warning, and probably about that site - but that was a long time ago.

           

          Thanks for raising a possible flag.

            No, Koyote Software is a legitimate site, and the link definitely works.

             

            Is that the site you're getting warnings on, John?

             

            The web site is based in Cyprus, so that may be triggering the warnings.

              That is the site... Norton Internet Security pops up a warning... I did not go any further into the details, so the site's location may be what triggers Norton

               

              Anyway... I wandered there because someone over in the Premiere Pro "old" forum could not edit AVCHD with PPro 1.5 so I posted your FAQ link... the top 2 links both worked, so... in the absence of a response by the person I was trying to help... I will presume they found a product to do the conversion

               

              I know there have been a few other instances of ISP's being blocked because of problems with "some" accounts... I will just chalk this up to a case of a good site being caught up on a bad host

               

              OK... I clicked the Norton "more info" link, and this is what it said

               

              Threats found: 1
              Here is a complete list: (for more information about a specific threat, click on the Threat Name below)

              Threat Name: Trojan.ADH.2
              File name: C:\NISManager\Data\ff10d7f1-86d6-407f-b6bf-bf60aefdd3fd_311481046\SetupDataMngr_Searchqu.e xe
              Location: http://download.cdn.koyotesoft.com/cdn/SearchSuite/002/SetupDataMngr_Searchqu.exe

               

               

              It may be that Norton is wrong, or that the vendor is infected and does not know... either way, as I said, the top links in your FAQ both go to sites with no Norton warning
