    Fake teamspeak update triggers my antivirus on a specific server!

    Hey, i received a friend request on steam from a guy who said he found me on csgoteamfinder.com, im on there. He invited me to his ts server and i didnt join right away, as we were to start a second game i joined and a message popped up telling me: "Your teamspeak version is outdated(v.3.0.16). CLICK HERE to update to 3.5.24". The "CLICK HERE" was written in blue. I clicked and it triggered my antivirus and i had to restart my computer. It happens on no other servers, only this one: IP REMOVED

    Some virus stuff or maybe a beta server? Weird it would trigger my antivirus like that, nothing else does. I dont see a version 3.5.24 on the official site.

    As you can see, this is a Host Message. So the server owner did enable that message and trys to spread a virus oder that message.

    Just do not click on any link on such host messages.

    The next client will add a warning dialog for this. but we can not prevent that users click on any links.

    Server that contains a Trojan-Virus

    Hi there,

    I'm new here in the forum and I just wanted to inform you that the server with this IP:removed
    gives you an error, as you want to connect, and requires you to download somewhat like a "teamspeak-sound-driver"
    when you click ok, there will be an automatic download of a trojan-virus. So I would like to ask you, if you could possibly shut down that server?

    Blacklisting of Servers Promoting Malware

    I am currently aware of many Teamspeak servers that are publicly accessible promoting malware.

    I made a list of these Teamspeak servers here - url removed

    I am aware Teamspeak servers can be blacklisted so is there any chance these kind of servers can be blacklisted to minimise infections?
