I think that it's just a false-positive, but what do you think? I got infected, or it's nothing? I don't know what is this "SiteTraffic", seems like a script, but i don't know.

Hello victorbrt


Lets take a look with Malwarebytes
Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
Please rename the file BEFORE downloading to zztoy.exe instead of mbam-setup.exe

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Double Click zztoy.exe to install the application.
* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Full Scan", then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy&Paste the entire MBAM report (even if it does not find anything) in your next reply

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.


If Malwarebytes won't install or run

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.

I have MBAM already installed. I'm just update here and perform a full scan now, nothing detected.

Also, when the Avira detected the HTML/SiteTrafic i clean all cache of Firefox and run CCleaner in the end. Checked in the about:cache of Firefox and had nothing, 0kb of files.
I think that there nothing, i verified a new log of HijackThis too and has nothing suspect, just the same values as before (which are few).

Don't worry, i'm am careful user, my system is usually clean. It's just this alert left me in doubt, hehehe.
But if anyone know what is this detection of Avira, i would like to know. It's just a false-positive? Or just a simple script, low rated virus, like others weak HTML viruses?
