  • Craig - This was reported as an attack site

    FYI
    Here's what I got when I logged in to SSS today:


    Safe Browsing
    Diagnostic page for acapella.harmony-central.com

    What is the current listing status for acapella.harmony-central.com?

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

    Part of this site was listed for suspicious activity 1 time(s) over the past 90 days.

    What happened when Google visited this site?

    Of the 276 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 7 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-10-02, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2012-10-02.

    Malicious software is hosted on 1 domain(s), including amp*ge.org/. (Amp*age link / mention removed by Phil 10-3-12)

    This site was hosted on 2 network(s) including AS13649 (VINS), AS15169 (Google Internet Backbone).

    Has this site acted as an intermediary resulting in further distribution of malware?

    Over the past 90 days, acapella.harmony-central.com did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites.

    Has this site hosted malware?

    No, this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days.

    How did this happen?

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

    Next steps:

    * Return to the previous page.
    * If you are the owner of this web site, you can request a review of your site using Google Webmaster Tools. More information about the review process is available in Google's Webmaster Help Center.

          As vociferous as it get's down there I can't imagine it as the source otherwise where would the "living in Moms basement Geek's" have to go to spout their venom.

          Political Party should be a forum on it's own and should not be attached to a Music site but as Craig say's it's what brings in the traffic to the forum dern it(Old Fart speaking).

          hope they sort this problem out my friend.

            I just got an email from Craig. He said...

            We're safe, and not infectious. Someone probably linked to, or more likely hotlinked to an image from amp*ge.net, and we're now guilty by association, even though even Google is reporting no one got infected from us, and there's zero malware on our site. (Amp*age link / mention removed by Phil 10-3-12)

            They're trying to get it fixed, and at some point, someone has to contact Google to get that cleared up - it's in IT's hands at the moment. Please pass the word that the site's safe!
            Something...

              You get it every damn time.....when you open HC, when you go to a forum, when you click on a thread, when you click preview......this time I will try just do a quick post but the last regular preview/post failed. Kept getting the warning. Also, right after you click ignore...you get an Apple OS pop up asking you if you are sure you want to continue. Annoying.

                If you are using Safari, you can open preferences and turn off the warning. I prefer Firefox, but that was the first fix I found (thanx Moogerfooger) that worked. I just wonder if this is some kind of attack like happened a few years ago in December. There's apparently nothing wrong with this site, but those kind of warnings will keep folks away.

                  Credit where credit is due: That was taken from a reply Phil wrote to someone else, and I was cc:ed. So, thanks Phil! (Not the first time I've said that today .)

                    So I can easily ignore the warning. But is there a way to make so this warning stops coming back? Kinda of annoying as this is one of my goto sites

                        Right is there a way to exclude this site? Without turning off the feature completely in firefox. As far as, I've seen in FF you can turn off the entire feature, but not just exclude. I'm not a fan of chrome or IE, and I'm on a PC so FF is it.

                          I just took the cue from Moogerfooger and turned off the warning. I guess if you want, you can turn if off when you get here and off when you leave. That's probably fewer clicks than ignoring the warning with each page.

                            Well I`m glad this is cleared up but for the record, I did not dare click into the site after that warning.

                              Actually, Google did not report zero infection.

                              It reported: "Of the 276 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 7 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent."
