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.

COM Express module runs Linux on a 2.3GHz Tegra K1

Seco is prepping a Linux-friendly COM Express Type 6 Compact module with a quad-core, 2.3GHz Tegra K1 SoC and optional extended temperature support.

In addition to the Jetson TK1 (Seco product page here), Seco is now adding a COM Express Type 6 Compact computer-on-module called the SECOMExp-TK1, which similarly runs Linux on an Nvidia Tegra K1 SoC.
