    apparently google is blocking other legitimate sites too, including YOUTUBE, their own site!

    That article says its from 2013, and the warning they were getting looks different from the one I'm seeing.

    The problem was caused by a nasty bit of code that got in via an exploit of vBulletin's plug-in system. This caused there some users to experience a redirect to a bit of malware hosted on myfilestore. When coming from a google search, the redirect would always happen, and some users experienced it randomly while browsing the site.

    This caused Google, Sophos and Yandex to flag the site as being dodgy.

    I've cleaned the problem, and got Google to verify the site (they're happy now) and now working through the steps needed to clear it on Yandex and Sophos (Sophos is proving to be a pain as they keep wanting to make me sign up to their paid services to clean it)

    As Sparko mentioned in another thread, the problem is vulnerabilities in the version of vBulletin we're running that is in need of an upgrade.

    Details about the need here

    I have not been warned or redirected today. I only followed the CP suggestion.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    Avast still flags tWeb, and I have to disable "Web Shield" to get here.

    It's probably going to be a while before this gets completely cleared up across the board.

    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    It's because JimL keeps posting "news" without sources!
