Admin I got this page while on woodworkingtalk.com

Safe Browsing Diagnostic page for www.woodworkingtalk.com What is the current listing status for www.woodworkingtalk.com? This site is not currently listed as suspicious. What happened when Google visited this site? Of the 6 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2010-07-21, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days. This site was hosted on 1 network(s) including AS36351 (SOFTLAYER). Has this site acted as an intermediary resulting in further distribution of malware? Over the past 90 days, www.woodworkingtalk.com did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites. Has this site hosted malware? No, this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days. Next steps: * Return to the previous page. * If you are the owner of this web site, you can request a review of your site using Google Webmaster Tools. More information about the review process is available in Google's Webmaster Help Center. Updated 8 hours ago 2008 Google - Google Home

This is preventing me from getting to all pages. This needs to be addressed

Just asking because I am using Chrome, so it seems to not just be that browser.

I got it too. Twice. "Warning! Malicious malware detected! Visiting this site could be harmful to your computer!" Big red page. Looked scary. I wonder if Google is getting even more invasive by using the sites their ads are on and snooping into your hard drive that way.

Google and Walmart both have lost my business because of the level of privacy raping they now engage in. I now use Start Page for my SE - and will never step foot in another Walmart if I can help it.

ME too

Using Mozilla Firefox as of today. Can't get in to WWT.
Using Google Chrome it's OK!
What's up? Have you been attacked.......

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

IE works, FF and Chrome was a no and Safari is ok so far. I don't normally use IE and Safari so maybe they are not updated.

This has definitely got to be a glitch because it says no problems were found with the site but that it was reported. everytime we get an attack page from a spammer it reports it but it said no problems were found so I don't think thats it.

someone had a typo when writing the code.

safari has the same problem now. IE is still ok but it's never been known for security anyway.

I just went to Fire Fox to see how it works. I am posting this connecting through Fire Fox.

No problems.

I continued on using Fire Fox after the above post. After looking at about 6 more posts I got a warning about an attack page. The explanation was this.

In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message.

George that's the same one that I posted just yours posted in the right format. I copied and pasted but it posted a little different. This has to be Google's screw up. They had one like this earlier this year according to a search.

In FireFox, if you go to Tools, Options, Security and unclick "Block Reported Attack Sites" then you will be able to access the site.

Unlike some of the security features, this one does not allow exception sites. I feel don't feel very comfortable just turning off this feature on my browser.

Site administrators should note a couple parts of the Google generated explanation:
"In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message."
Could a user or users be embedding suspect code into posts? It's probably possible, but it is probable? Also:
"If you are the owner of this web site, you can request a review of your site using Google Webmaster Tools."
Has anyone from the site followed up this?

This could be mere annoyance, but it could be that Google is actually trying to, and succeeding at, providing a valuable service. At a minimum, I hope we can get some clarity so that we can surf safely and enjoy this community (of which I am a very new member).

Hi all,

We have found the issue and removed it from the site. It was related to the archive section of the site. The reports once received by the web browsers usually issue warnings for the entire site, not any particular section.

We have asked Google to remove the warning although this may take some time. Sorry for the inconvenience.
