Virus alert visiting Onyx International homepage

Since I am interested in Onyx products, I almost daily visit their homepage

http://www.onyx-international.com.cn/en/

to read the company's news.

Since several days I get a virus alert from my GDATA Internet Security 2013 antivirus software at each visit. The software warns against the virus

Exploit.TIFF.Gen

I wonder how a virus can be located on the homepage of a - hopefully - reputable company.

I am looking forward to your ideas and comments.

Best regards
Philju

Virus checkings....

According Virustotal which includes the GData engine, there's no threat in the mentioned URL

See analysis results here:

https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/06...is/1379453761/

BUT Sucuri SiteChecker list it as holding malware

http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/...ational.com.cn

I don't know at this moment who's right...Quttera also says no malware present.

Btw, do Onyx update their website much? The few times I visit their page there always seems to be the same news more or less.

Indeed there is almost no change. But since the launch of the E-Ink smartphone E43 has been announced on the Computex fair (June) for September, I check the homepage every few days.

By the way, the virus problem still exists.

Another virus alert

Hi,

this is just to complete my previous posting. Now my antivirus software warns against:

Script.Exploit.Kit.E@gen

once I load the onyx homepage. By now I doubt that there is any coincidence involved. I rather wonder if these viruses are planted by ONYX or - more likely - by Chinese authorities.

I hope not to bore anybody with this topic.
