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.

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 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."

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.

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