Sripraphai Website Has a Virus

Bob Martinez Jul 3, 2012 08:53 AM

Both my GF and I browse on separate computers, both of which have Norton Anti Virus installed. About a month go I got an automated message from NAV that the Sri site had tried to install a rootkit on my hard drive, a particularly severe type of virus. Today my GF got the same message.

My assumption is that the problem is with the server that hosts their website. It's likely that it's operated by a 3rd party company.

I suggest you go to Menupages if you need to check their menu.

(Apologies in advance to the moderators. While this post isn't food related the problem has the potential to affect lots of people in a major way. )

    Here's a screen shot of the first NAV warning message -


    My GF got a similar message on her computer today.

        I'm going to call them. I'd email them but I don't want to visit their website to get their address.

      this happened a long time ago with me, my browser would just crash and give virus warnings when they first created that website..I've stayed away ever since....not from eating there, just the site :) and I definitely called them back then and told them..

        I phoned them this afternoon and reported it. I also emailed them a copy of the NAV attack report.
