A few years ago I started with a website for a shop wich sells stuff for Patchwork and quilting. (www.thecosycottage.be)
Lately users of the site have sporadically problems opening the site, they are sometimes redirected to a malware site with one of the following adresses : mycompscanner22.com or mycompscanner2.com, or mycompscanner42.com, and maybe other variants. This website then shows a popup screen wich says that the pc is infected with lots of trojans and viruses.
At first we thought the pc was infected with spyware, but after running different antispyware and anti malware programs like a-squared, spydoctor, spyhunter, malwarebytes... nothing could be found.
So we think that somehow a connection to our website is intercepted and then redirected to another website.
As far as we could establish, this happens only with internet explorer , we have no reports from it happening in firefox and flock.
Does anyone has an idea what is happening and most of all, what can be done to stop this ?
The problem was already reported to the company where we host the website, but they didn't answer yet.
