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, tuxmachines.org 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 tuxmachines.org to list of safe sites to avoid the warning.

more warnings

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"

http://www.stopbadware.org/firefox?hl=en-US&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tuxmachines.org%2F

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

indeed

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

GNOME Control Center 3.22 to Update the Keyboard Settings, Improve Networking

The upcoming GNOME 3.22 desktop environment is still in the works, and a first Beta build was seeded to public beta testers last week, bringing multiple enhancements and new features to most of its core components and apps. While GNOME 3.22 Beta was announced on August 22, it appears that the maintainers of certain core packages needed a little more time to work on various improvements and polish their applications before they were suitable for public testing. And this is the case of GNOME Control Center, which was recently updated to version 3.21.90, which means 3.22 Beta. Read more
