    I just logged into HCAG, and opened a couple of threads.

    My antivirus blocked the pages and said that there was malicious software present on the pages.

    Anybody else?

    Me too. I ignored the warning otherwise I wouldn't be here. I wonder what's up?

        No problems here. I'm using MS Security Essentials and, if there's a problem, it didn't detect it.

          I, too, use MSE and have gotten no issues, so far.

          Perhaps H-C is getting some more down time in the not-distant future?

            Last time we were getting warnings like this wasn't something to do with the ad banners setting them off?


            • #7
              I'm on a Linux box, using FF and have buttoned my box down pretty tight (NoScript, ad blockers, and a slew of other tight security stuff). I temporarily over-rode multiple warnings to get here and post this.

              Here's a pasted copy of the warning I'm getting:

              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.

                MSE is lame. I've cleaned up numerous boxes whose owners depended on MSE, includng my own hubby's. Just about worn out my MBAM and TDSSKill CDs getting rid of crap MSE never caught.

                You Win-Doze guys want decent free security, check out Comodo or Avast or Kapersky.

                Edit to add:

                Obviously, don't click on an ad here (or just about anywhere on da Interwebz).

                And.....this is another reason I don't hang out here so much anymore.

                  Firefox stops loading altogether.

                    Firefox works fine, you just have to click the correct "I know what I'm doing" box.

                      Hmm......FF working just fine for me, except for the aforementioned warning.

                        I'm using MSE too but got the same warnings and message from google that samilyn posted. Has anyone sent a message to the mods? I wonder why this is happening now? Today is the first time this has happened to me and I have the HCAG forum bookmarked lol

                          I got it today too.

                              Went ahead and sent the mods a message about this issue, using Sammi's post, as it seems pretty informative, although I expect they've already been told.
