Malware on A.Com?

Postby IreneD » Thu Apr 19, 2012 11:43 am

My laptop won't let me visit A.Com - it says the site has malware and it has advised the owners. I'm on my phone atm - hope it doesn't get infected (is that possible?) Anyway, I'll try again later :)

I clicked the email link to check the Olympics thread and got this message:-

I have been getting warnings from Google Chrome about malware.

I have contacted the site owners and there was a problem on part of the site (not the forum) and it has now been fixed.

Been iffy all week but this morning it's particularly bad. Slow loading, at times it posts the replies yet it stays on the reply saying 'connecting'. I'm surprised that there are not far more doubl posts !

It seems to me that this warning only comes up if I use the Chrome browser and it is Google that is giving the warning - IE goes straight in and, like Annfoto, McAfee admits there ain't a problem!

It only happens when I use Chrome. FF and IE are OK.

The message from Chrome you posted on your 'Hackers' thread is the one, I'm getting, too, Mowser :(

Seems that maybe it's not fixed. Chrome still bringing up the warning this afternoon:-

It's fixed. The Google warning is still there as until they remove it, it stays there - it's isn't magically doing a virus check.

I am merging this thread with the other one.

The fact that there was a potential problem shows how good Google Chrome is at protecting computer users.
I have not been on for 2 days because of the warning.
I have a lot of confidence in Google products.
