    Default Malware ahead

    Hi

    When I tried to enter usingenglish.com today I got a notification on my Chrome that "the website ahead contains malware". I proceeded at my own risk. I didn't have any problems of this sort yesterday . Did it happen to anyone else or is it some bug on my machine?

    Me too. It's not the first time I've gotten this warning from Google Chrome.
    I saved the diagnostic page that details some of the problems. I'd be happy to forward it (html file) by email to whomever deals with this sort of problem.

    I got this same warning aswell.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.

    I have never got such warnings on Dolphin for Android but I receive them (in abundance) on Firefox for Windows. Today's problem probably started yesterday when there were a bit more than a hundred users online.

    In order to try and identify the cause of the malware warnings etc. I have removed all non-essential 3rd-party forum plugins and addons (since one of these may have been the method used to mount the attack). You may therefore find that some functionality is missing from the forum.

    The site is clean. We are not distributing malware.

    We've contacted Google and are awaiting the results of a review of the site to remove the malware warnings.

    Hi,

    It's Mar 04 in the a.m. here in China. I'm still getting the warning page from Google. Here is an extract from the diagnostic page.

    What happened when Google visited this site?
    .... The last time Google visited this site was on 2013-03-03, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2013-03-03.

    A problem that I saw with my Android system was that the banner advert had slipped down the page and covered the first line of menus. It's OK now.

    I had the same thing for a couple of hours, but it cleared up.
