I'm getting malware warnings every 10 seconds on every board and every thread I click on.


Okay, I'm getting this now too on this site only. Earlier today I was getting it on other sites as well, but now all of the other sites are fine, and this one has an infestation that is off the chain.


Patrk, how is the reading going? What's the hold up? How much info could there be on the internet for Malware? What the hell?

Sorry. Busy morning. So apparently malware is short for malicious software. I'm trying to cross reference this for validation. This is just the tip of the ice berg.

Good work, O'Rly. I feel confident with you on the case. I'm sure you will have this cleared up in no time.

Mighty fine. Mighty fine.

It's happening more and more, and no one thing seems to be causing it. I get it when I try to go to a different page, click on threads, try to post and "jump" to my post.

Internet apocalypse is at hand.

I have to use a dated version of IE on my work PC and it's switching me to Compatibility Mode everytime I click into a thread.

Patrick, anything? The natives are getting restless. You've had all day to read up on this malware business. What does it all mean? How do we fix the machine?

re: I keep getting malware warnings.


I think it's clear we need Mal Cop on this problem.

Or just use Apple devices.

re: I keep getting malware warnings.


I'm not a malware expert by any means.

I haven't seen the issue on other sites.

My guess would be it's germane to whatever ad tracking software is being used here, but that's just a hunch.

So, the Germans did this?

That's great.


ETA: This robber guy comes up and says something to me about something. Content from Cmi.netseer.com has been inserted into this webpage. Visiting this webpage very likely will now infect your computer.

Jesus, Patrick. I feel like I'm the one doing all of the work. Ok so apparently google just recently added netseer to their list of bad boys which is why the malware is popping up on different sites.

quote:

Google Display Network has blacklisted Netseer. So any advertisment using the technology will be recognized by chrome and therefore the site will be blocked. All the publishers who allow DoubleClick/AdSense (that is almost every large Publisher)in their network, can be blocked by Chrome. Keep in mind that the Publisher you're visiting is not infecting you with malware


Apparent fixes and/or solutions by most reputable internet services have simply said to switch browsers and report the problem to google.

re: I keep getting malware warnings.


quote:

What happened was that the public website of Netseer, an online ad-placement service rather than a "known malware distributor," was itself corrupted with malware, perhaps in an attempt to instigate drive-by downloads.

"This morning at about 5:30am PT, our 3rd party-hosted corporate website (netseer.com) was infected with a malware [sic]," said a Netseer email sent to websites that used the company's ad service. "Consequently, Google added our domain to the list of malware-affected websites.

"Our ad-serving infrastructure is completely different from the corporate website, but shares the same domain (netseer.com). So although the malware never impacted the ad serving, all our ad-serving partners saw Chrome and other browsers flagging malware warnings to users."

In other words, because the Netseer public page was infected, Google blocked all content coming from that domain name, including ads. No actual malware was transmitted across the ad network.

Sites affected by Google's block included those of the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, Guardian, TheStreet.com, Hollywood Reporter and IMDb.com, among many others.

re: I keep getting malware warnings.


Okay. I get it. No need to patronize me.

I wasn't thinking about it in a "lets get rid of ads because I don't want to see them" way. I was thinking about it as a temporary fix to the malware problem.
