Linux websites being reported at attack sites,


Has anyone else been experiencing this? Seems like within the last few weeks, Firefox has been warning me that various Linux and Android websites are malicious. Maybe someone out there really hates open source and is flagging these sites as malicious?

Hi,

Which version of Firefox & Distribution? Any plugins? Post a screen shot. Too little information from you to really diagnose or help with this issue.

I am using Firefox 19.0 with Adblock & NoScript without issues.

Currently using Firefox 17 with Adblock Plus, HTTPS-Everywhere, Flashblock, and Stylish. I don't have any screenshots. Prior to my OP I had to specify LQ was not an attack site.

I can confirm that LQ has not been listed at any time since the well documented previous (single) instance.
