    Yandex email of potential threat


    I have received and email from Yandex-team claiming there is a virus on one of our websites..

    Some of the pages on your website may pose a threat to your visitor's computer security. The number of potentially harmful pages is 1.
    Is this genuine?

    How can I verify this through a website that isn't russian?

    Thanks,

    For an alternative view, you could replace the site= part of this URL with your own site.

    google safe browsing diagnostic

    Thanks, already tried that, and google say's no.

    However, if I use the 'sucuri site check', it claims there is a virus , only it points to a page that doesn't exist?

    I think I will ignore the email as a phishing excersize, Yandex might be Russia's biggest search provider, but I don't trust them! - well I don't trust Google either
