      Yes, it is a phishing web page. It appears as if the website was hacked or compromised and the malicious page "wp-includes/images/2014/index.php" placed on it.

    This is not virus, only a phishing scam. You will only be in danger if you enter your username and password on the phishing or fake website. If you did, please change your password. That's all.

    Is only my gmail-password in danger (because I changed it already)? I just thought that were there somekind of virus which could seek my other passwords as I use them om my computer?
