Default Bad site?

Firefox just reported that this site is a bad site (phishing, malware, etc).
Any idea why?

Firefox and/or Google are reporting the site may have been attacked and may now be infecting visitors with malware.

Shrapnel need to check the integrity of the site and then apply for it to be removed from the list.

I will open a thread in the Shrapnel general forum too.

Fallout Re: Bad site?

Same issue yesterday evening, worked fine when I looked in earlier in the morning. Here now using the "new" Win10 Explorer browser and no warnings showed up, though not surprised. Mozilla says they that they are getting this warning through GOOGLE it's intertwined with their search engine.

Regards,
Pat

I had the warning too, but only for the forums. Not other parts of the Shrapnel Games site...

Sites usually seem to get that if they have served up what Google thinks is a "dodgy" advert.

I'm just ignoring the warning for now, hopefully Shrapnel will sort things out with Google to get themselves unlisted soon.

cheers

What's Phishing? Sounds like organized crime to me! Call the FBI. Makes me wonder if computers are just a front for organized crime. Microsoft could be the ring leader. What's Malware? If Malware is a high level of commercialism, all websites are effected, which leads me back to orginized crime. What we need is a communications blackout. That would end the whole problem!

Occasionally, linking to a site that has been infected with malware gets you listed too. Happened to the forum I admin where a user had linked to a website which was hijacked and used to spread malicious software. I had to pull the link down to get the site reported as safe.

Edit: the content of the page had changed when it was hijacked - when it was originally linked to it contained no such thing.

Annoying, but you can bypass it.
