DON'T PANIC -- Regarding "Warning - visiting this web site may harm your computer!"

  • #21
    I was wondering why I had to reformat about a month ago... Shady dealings :(
  • #22
    This freaked the life out of me, I checked out topic "warnig this is an attack site" to go and probably report, and i saw that scary message.
    So, it's an attacking ad? Blimey.
    I actually don't need a signature, but then people would think I'm an idiot. So, it's here.

    Well, that's a relief. I tried to go to the Chat thread, and I thought someone had planted a virus or something.

    The strange part if it's an issue with an advertisement, why am I still getting it even though I use AdBlock Plus?

    fwiw we've never had any confirmation of malware being delivered through our system before; if you ever suspect this website or any other curse network site being infected please contact me immediately and I'll push it to the higher ups to be investigated. Malware is absolutely not something we want to have our users exposed to; it's just shady advertisers responsible for it. We gain nothing, it just destroys our reputation :(

    Google's database has the whole www.minecraftforum.net domain marked as dangerous regardless of the user's browser and extensions. You could be browsing with the most secure text-only browser, but as long as it checks Google's database for dangerous websites, it'll display a warning too.

    And as a side note, the Chrome edition of AdBlock Plus still loads the ads in the background. It just doesn't display them.

    I had to bypass it in order to get in here and see what this thread said.
    Yep.
    Does this happen for anyone else with the wiki also?

    No clue how Google got their hands into Firefox...


    Google has their hands in everything from Nasa to your coffee machine.

    I thought you got angry at the people who left this forum to a different one and decided to do this...

    Possibly because of this

    Hell can't really be that bad. you've got decent company, more or less every scientist (so you know, re-invent AC...) You got the Guys who like guys, so you know, good fashion sense. Person who invented the computer is down there as well (he was a gay Atheist).

    The website hosted the advertisement that tried to inject malicious code, just because you have adblock plus will not prevent google from discovering it. Turning on ad-block-plus does not turn off ads for the entire world xD

    For those using Chrome, here's how you can disable the annoying warning:

    Quote from Goolge Support »
    1. Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.

    2. Select Settings.

    3. Click Show advanced settings and find the "Privacy" section.

    4. Deselect the "Enable phishing and malware protection" checkbox.


    Source.

    Just remember to turn it on again once everything's fixed :)

    AdBlock didn't solve the problem. :/
    Whelp.
  • #38
    So when do we spam Google to re-do a scan so much that they actually boost the priority of the issue? (When will you be done removing all the bad ads?)

    If curse needs a sign of how much fans are dedicated to this forum and minecraft, I think this is it. :steve_sillyface:
