    Default Paulz Trainz has Malware?

    So I was going onto Pauls website to see if there was any new releases and it says that the website got blocked for malware. why does it say there is malware on his site

    Keeping a web site secure can be difficult and the more complex it is the harder it is. Web sites that have been infected with malware are one of the major vectors for getting malware to your PC.

    In addition there are false positives so the web site may not be infected.

    I'd check it with chrome and if its tagged as malware infected then I might spend my money elsewhere.

    Paulz website always gives a false positive with my AV software i.e. BTinternetprotect aka McAfee, but on the odd occasion I look at Paulz site I just ignore the warnings and enter his site and nothing untoward happens.

    Just this minute tried to visit Paulz site and the warnings received are more severe than they've been in the past so I will avoid for now!

    According to VirusTotal, the detection rate is 3/64.
    Sites that see paulztrainz.myenet.info as a malicious site are :
    Yandex Browser
    Google Browser
    Dr.Web (AV)

    As i see all other scanners say it's a clean site, including my own (bitdefender).

    I did talk to Paul and he states that this happens occasionally and he is not concerned. I suspect that some advert is causing the issue.
    The United State's Health Care System ranks 37th in the world just behind Costa Rica.

    Here is what McAfee shows;



    I ventured on and I could not find the bad content The site had no issues, if it did have something, maybe it was removed and no longer there. I would rate the site as safe from viruses, trojans, or other malware.
    If it's not broke, don't fix it.

    If he has third party ads on his site then that's probably what is triggering it.
