Re: Warning: Visiting this site may harm your computer

We are having trouble with Google. It seems that in a certain number of cases, attempting to come to these forums produces a message which says:

Re: Warning: Visiting this site may harm your computer...

It appears that people's browsers come to this server, which is the correct server, otherwise you would not be reading this, while Googles bots, go to an old server that was dropped some months ago. That server is indeed compromised, which is why we dropped that hosting service to begin with.

I am coming to you all today with two questions. First of all, I am trying to figure the extent of the problem. Second I am looking for any way to convince Google's bots to look at this server and not the old server.

Any suggestions on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Peace

Hi David,

As of today only, my antivirus is freaking out when I visit the forums, saying that there is a Trojan here:

HEUR:Trojan.Script.Iframer

Any ideas?

I have done a Google search to see if any security issues have shown up in the forums software. This produced absolutely nothing. After struggling with it for a while and turning up absolutely nothing, I contacted my hosting service. They are now scanning the server with their own software and I expect some feedback from them within the hour.

Peace

See the reply in the other thread, so that we do not have the confusion of two identical threads going on simultaneously, I am going to lock this one out. We can continue the postings in the other thread.

Peace
