Getting Malware detected warning (FIXED!)

Post by negZero » Wed May 04, 2011 9:44 am

Edit by Matthew: This problem is now fixed.

This just started up today but I've been getting malware detected warning with Chrome with these boards.

I brought this up with the other mods, looking into it.
I might not be the best, but I've made who ever is quite nervous.

Google is reporting to us that there is malicious software on our site, but we can't find any, so we have enlisted the help of a professional programming firm.

This will hopefully be resolved today.

You can see details on the malware report here: http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diag ... com/&hl=en

It's very possible that someone has done an exploit somewhere on the store site and inserted references to the 3 sites listed that hosts the malware. Google has found this and flagged it since. Also possible that they're inserted through ads on the site. In any case, I hope the firm you guys hired can help you clear things up quickly.

In the meantime, we have disabled all advertising from the store, so the forum and main MWG pages should now be unaffected by this problem.

While I understand this area is not for discussing issues with the MiniWarGaming.com store, I feel I'm obligated to let you guys know that the store is (still) also affected by this issue.

See the following image for details:

Note that I arrived at the store by using the 'WEB STORE' link in the top nav.

Good luck, guys. I'm hoping this is a random malfunction rather than an act of malicious intent.
