Malware

Recommended Posts

Yeah, that time of year again. All the malware has migrated south for the winter, and NS is back to being flagged by bloody StopBadWare.com.

the was a trojan injected into our ad serving software last night, and was fixed early this morning.

 

it was fixed quite a few hours ago, but google is being an ass about lifting the "warning" page.

 

use firefox or ie. in the meantime!

As opposed to Chrome, Google's web browser.

google "flagged" the site hence why the error is appearing... until they review and unflag it the error will remain in chrome unfortunately :(

It's only coming up once per visit now, instead of going batshit, and setting off Avast as well.

 

Good hustle, Loz.

Is there anything in Google Webmaster that lets you schedule another check of the site? Or are you at the mercy of whenever they scan next?

 

To be honest, I'm kind of surprised that Google would let ads like that through to begin with...

Because Chrome is tied to Google, they will deliver the "WARNING! MALWARE AHEAD!" messages, whereas other browsers wont. It's not necessarily a bad feature, but because it's Google that's scanning the site and not the browser (the browser just checks the url against a database of sites marked as having malware), there can be some lag between when the malware is removed and when Google detects that the malware is removed. As I said, it's not a bad feature (it's actually a pretty good feature), it's just that the warning messages can hang around for a while, even though the problem doesn't exist any more. Using Firefox, Opera or Internet Explorer (preferably Firefox or Opera), won't trigger these messages.

It's up to its old tricks again.

 

Might need to piss the banner ads off for a while.

Avast is picking it up too on Firefox. I suspect that it may not be a Google thing.

I've been getting it with Firefox (both Windows and Ubuntu), so it's not limited to just Chrome. Hopefully it clears soon.

It SHOULD be cleared now...

 

have put together reports for all the different sites, and have definitely removed all the malware (to the point of deleting the whole ad serving software and moving to a new solution!)

Still f**king broke.

 

Not to mention when I tried to search for this topic it didn't even come up.

 

NS 0/10 would not use again.

Why the need to search when there's only 5 topics in this whole section?

 

Go to menu - HELP - then to "**WEBSITE HELP FORUM**"

 

 

I'll look into the search too.

Here's a quick fix for Google Chrome users

 

 

 

Disable phishing and malware detection

  • Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
  • Select Settings.
  • Click Show advanced settings and find the "Privacy" section.
  • Deselect the "Enable phishing and malware protection" checkbox.

This way is probably better, on the page where it says MALWARE blah blah (Google Chrome) - You can just click PROCEED AT OWN RISK (if you dont see it, it might be in ADVANCED) or something.

 

This is better than turning off the protection all together. :)
