    Hi guys,

    I just tried to load OSNN in Chrome and it came up with a warning message about it being an 'unsafe' site. I've attached the error message.

    Strange thing is, I closed the browser and tried again and it went straight in with no problems. Perhaps it's an advertising-based issue?

    hmm odd. I didn't see this this morning while at home using Chrome but now checking at work with Chrome I'm seeing the same warning.

    Does it give any links to chase down what might be flagging it ?

    Re: OSNN picked up as 'Harmful'

    The Google webmaster pages tell me there was an imbedded iframe like

    iframe name="68" width="1" height="1" scrolling="no" frameb
    order="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" src="http://www.
    xxxxxxxxxxxxx.co.cc/xxxx.php"

    (edited) but I can find no reference to it. I can only think it was some malicious ad that got thru one of our providers, but with the information I have there is no way to trace it. Trying to find a way of getting whatever scan found that to update.

    Yup, I have a friend of a friend who works at Google in that department so trying to find out what page(s) that code is appearing on because I just can't see it.
    If it is from the adverts it will till be a nitemare to trace, but it will mean that OSNN itself is not compromised in any way.

    I am seeing it now. Only on firefox though. Internet Explorer doesn't show it. Firefox won't even allow me to log into the site.

    I've been getting that all day today.

    I also received some kind of plug-in request when I visited here.

    What's going on :eek:

    Re: OSNN picked up as 'Harmful'

    I have seen other sites doing the same thing the past few days.

    Example is Pirate Bay being flagged.

    I really do not put all my faith in what Google says.

    Haven't seen it again since I said, don't flag this site.

    It's annoying but not a deal-breaker.

    For others visiting this place, it could be a different story.

    I am getting flagged everytime I start Chrome from scratch (since I have the Speed Dial extension) haven't checked other browsers yet.

    I can't do anything with this site on firefox or chrome. It only works with IE.

    This is what I get with firefox:

    It is the adds you have on here. I also noticed a plug in request as well. When selected, it wanted me to install quicktime, which I don't have and wont install.

    I highly doubt it was really QuickTime it wanted you to install, I'd put $ on it being a virus/trojan. These new breed of infections trick you into thinking you need to install a plugin for something and your installing the malware for them. :) Also I wouldn't suggest coming here with IE if the ads are in fact auto installing things like the Google malware warning states.

    I managed to get a plugin thing pop up once but it was on the Firefox beta so wasn't being too helpful.

    Re: OSNN picked up as 'Harmful'

    I believe the particular ads on the frontpage (I assume its happening on the frontpage) are:

    http://www.osnn.net/adverts/bannerconnect_728x90.html
    http://www.osnn.net/adverts/casale_160x600.html
    http://www.osnn.net/adverts/bannerconnect_468x60.html
    http://www.osnn.net/adverts/bannerconnect_160x600.html

    The code from
    http://www.osnn.net/adverts/burst_120_160x600.html
    http://www.osnn.net/adverts/burst_728x90.html
    http://www.osnn.net/adverts/burst_468x60.html may also be in there

    Basically if anyone can get any of Index of /adverts to bite then it will be easier to track this down.

    They could be geo-targetted which makes it even harder for me to find the damn thing.
