I think that it is one of those virus hack script that is some where between your computer and the IP and assorted servers. I get no indications of any virus, I have two different anti-virus programs running, and nothing is showing we have had this happen occasionally and I have had it happen on other sites.

yeah, I just got a warning that Google flagged this site as a potential "Attack Site". (FYI: I'm running Firefox)

It said they found suspicious code on (if I remember right) 2012-7-10

I closed Firefox and reopened to get the warning again. If you click on "Why was this page blocked?", here's what they tell you::


Safe Browsing

Diagnostic page for metalartistforum.com
What is the current listing status for metalartistforum.com?

Site is listed as suspicious - visiting this web site may harm your computer.

Part of this site was listed for suspicious activity 2 time(s) over the past 90 days.

Of the 2 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 2 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-07-10, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2012-07-10.

Malicious software is hosted on 1 domain(s), including jnlkttkruqsdjqlx.ru/.

In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message.

If I click the ignore button and proceed to the site, then they have a red warning bar across the top of the screen. Two options: "This is an attack site" and "This isn't an attack site". I clicked on the "Isn't" and get thrown to this page:

They have a link for web-site owners to get de-listed

Isn't that the truth! Google just got B-slapped with the biggest FTC fine ever for tracking customers personal data. But we're supposed to trust them to tell us which sites are safe?????Posted Image

I will open a support ticket and link this thread as well. Anytime anything happens in the forum a log is created. I have checked the logs and nothing has been installed on this server. It would be very difficult to do. Ironically, the only third party script running on this forum is from google Adsense.

I do not get the messages you are getting. I usually access the forum through my IPad or MacBook and it might be a windows thing. I would always be careful but would not be overly concerned.

If the forum support feels there is a problem I will take the forum down until whatever is causing the messages is fixed.

I will keep you all posted.

Thanks Matt. The red note keeps showing, I ignore it and so far everything seems to run fine.

Like Avashi, I'm still getting and ignoring the message with no visible ill affects. And just in case it helps, I'm running Firefox on Windows XP.

I just tried Chrome and IE. No problem with those browsers and MAF. Which now makes me confused why Chrome doesn't have a problem when it's a Google issue. Maybe my Chrome just needs to be updated. I hardly ever use it so it might be behind on updates.

Whatever... I'm not worried about it, just letting you know. Thanks for looking into it Matt.
