  1. Hello…

    I’ve just checked my blog (blogger) using your free scan and found that there are malwares infected through some comments. Then, I checked each and every blog of the persons who left those comments, it showed that they all were malware free.

    How come is it possible? How could the malware infect through the comments while their blogs are free form malware?

    (Sorry to leave this message here as I didn’t find an e-mail address!)
