Malware Warning (resolved)

Filed under
Site News

I have been informed that my site was producing malware warnings from Google. Google web tools reported that some malicious ads were possibly being served through my OpenX ad server. OpenX has been removed and the database deleted. You would have only encountered the infected sites if you had followed one of malicious ads and landed on a site delivering the malware. But since openX is gone for now, is completely safe as are the google ads that remain.

I just hope google will remove the warning with their next crawl. I have requested a review. Until then you can safely add to list of safe sites to avoid the warning.

Seems like Firefox (windows version) is warning as well.

I can reach TM via IE8 (using GoogleDNS) but FF (using GoogleDNS) spawns a malware warning.

Here's the link it offers to get "de-listed"

You can also disable the autoblock in Firefox by:

"Can I disable the attack site warnings in Firefox? Yes, but doing so will leave your computer more vulnerable to being infected with badware. If you are willing to accept this risk, you may disable the warnings in the Firefox options/preferences by clicking the Security tab, unchecking “Block reported attack sites,” and clicking OK. "

re: warnings

I already put in for a review there too. They said a couple days there. Google said weeks. Sad


Yep, Indeed I noticed it as well and couldn't believe my eyes Smile
Today the warning is gone, though.

Radeon vs. Nouveau Open-Source Drivers On Mesa Git + Linux 4.9

For your viewing pleasure this Friday are some open-source AMD vs. NVIDIA numbers when using the latest open-source code on each side. Linux 4.9-rc1 was used while Ubuntu 16.10 paired with the Padoka PPA led to Mesa Git as of earlier this week plus LLVM 4.0 SVN. As covered recently, there are no Nouveau driver changes for Linux 4.9 while we had hoped the boost patches would land. Thus the re-clocking is still quite poor for this open-source NVIDIA driver stack. For the Nouveau tests I manually re-clocked each graphics card to the highest performance state (0f) after first re-clocking the cards to the 0a performance state for helping some of the GPUs that otherwise fail with memory re-clocking at 0f, as Nouveau developers have expressed this is the preferred approach for testing.

Ubuntu MATE, Not Just a Whim

I've stated for years how much I dislike Ubuntu's Unity interface. Yes, it's become more polished through the years, but it's just not an interface that thinks the same way I do. That's likely because I'm old and inflexible, but nevertheless, I've done everything I could to avoid using Unity, which usually means switching to Xubuntu. I actually really like Xubuntu, and the Xfce interface is close enough to the GNOME 2 look, that I hardly miss the way my laptop used to look before Unity. I wasn't alone in my disdain for Ubuntu's flagship desktop manager switch, and many folks either switched to Xubuntu or moved to another Debian/Ubuntu-based distro like Linux Mint. The MATE desktop started as a hack, in fact, because GNOME 3 and Unity were such drastic changes. I never really got into MATE, however, because I thought it was going to be nothing more than a hack and eventually would be unusable due to old GNOME 2 libraries phasing out and so forth. Read more
