Attack Site Warnings.

Postby Lyria on Thu Sep 16, 2010 10:45 am

Don't know if any of you were worried or put off from posting here due to the attack site warnings firefox is giving this place. My virus protection was going mad warning me about it too. Anyway, just to put your minds at rest, there was a problem with an ad server connected to this site but admin assures me it's all sorted out now, though it will take a while for firefox to update it's warnings.

Due to the warnings I got I did a full scan of my computer and it came back clean so hopefully that will be the same for everyone.

Although the problem is sorted, apparently it's likely to take Firefox a while to catch up and decide we're not a bad site anymore, admin reckons it will be at least 24 hours before they do that.

Don't know what version of firefox you're running Adam but this is a full red page with big warning writing I'm getting. As I say though the issue is solved so I'm told and my virus protection has stopped having a fit about me being here too which proves to me it's fine now.

It's Google that will have to update - they're the ones who keep the list of blacklisted sites, which they compile while scraping the web for data. No idea how long that takes. 90 days, if the admin doesn't ask them to review it.

To get the warning, safe search, or whatever it's called in your browser, has to be turned on. When it is, the browser downloads the blacklist data periodically. Obviously, to get rid of the warning, turn it off.

According to Google, the problem is with the FXDD ad. Paul said he got a pop-up to download software yesterday. I never saw one, but I have the annoying FXDD bar blocked with adblock which is probably why.

Anyway, Firefox? That's just so last year. Chrome or Safari are the new hotness, or hot newness. Webkit, baby.

So called "hotness" is not a determining factor for me... baby. :talkhand:

I tried to post this yesterday but in the confusion with trying to switch browsers, I got logged out and then ran out of time before my meeting. Anyway, I was experiencing problems yesterday and last night and again this morning (4th world time) but all appears good now from where I sit. There have been some frantic communiqués behind the scenes, I can tell you.

There's a simple Firefox workaround that I used to turn off the warning. Go to Tools>Options>Security and turn off 'Block Reported Attack Sites'.

Simples. :p

Dev you seem to be the only one getting said message now as far as I'm aware. :confused: Not sure why that is though.
