Google just said LQ was an "attack site".
 
I just clicked on my bookmark to get into LQ and a big google warning come up telling me LQ was an attack site. I've seen this a couple of times with various small forums and each of them went offline for about a week. Just thought I'd let you know.

i got red warning too, as i used direct link i think it comes from firefox.

gdizzle 02-03-2013 11:34 PM

Yep just had the same claiming there is malware..

jeremy 02-03-2013 11:38 PM

Looking at our Google Webmaster Tools account, this is definitely a mistake and LQ is not currently serving malware. I'm looking into it further now. Thanks for the heads up.

I had this warning on another site, I think someone broke the internet. :)

pingu 02-03-2013 11:49 PM

I got this too.
Strange though, reading the diagnostic page it says:
"Of the 616 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software..
Over the past 90 days, www.linuxquestions.org/questions did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites.
this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days."

and people wonder why internet users will ignore warnings...bogus 'warnings' like this are a lot of the reason why.

This is just one of the dangers of having a global super corporation with it's tracking "features" built into three of the four major web browsers and enabled by default.

goumba 02-04-2013 06:45 AM

I think it's a Google problem as many sites I vist regualrly gave me this warning this morning.

Pixxt 02-04-2013 07:10 AM

Google and Firefox both issue this warning, but no issues with Bing.

GazL 02-04-2013 07:25 AM

Don't know whether this will help. Got this from trying to access the homepage just now from a non-logged in firefox session.
I also saw a "Additional plugins required" notification pop up, which is unusual because I didn't think LQ generally allows flash ads (though I may be mistaken)

It's google for crying out loud.
They've never made a mistake.

but then again, pewp happens.

DrLove73 02-04-2013 08:59 AM

It seams that openx.org, d1.rumbaypelo.com, and/or aboelaraby.com are culprits. So not the LQ directly but third-party links.
