I have watched a few video's on you-tube from the guy at georgabees.com. Decided to go to his website and see what it was. Got a Google warning.

Funny thing, I got that warning from my wifes website the other day. Seems google didnt like somthing about it. I reported it to the host and they went through the site and the servers and all was well. I was also told it was sending malicious emails out......the other funny thing is that it can't, we dont have that feature or option....

Its also possible if you allow advertising feeds from third parties for those advertisements to carry infectious codes. I've known a couple sites that had issues with their ad services because it was causing problems for their users.

Got the same thing w/ my Chevy van and its security system (you can't start it w/o the key system) The wrench told me that something in the computer doesn't like what the chip/sensor is telling it and it would take three hours at 75 bucks per to wipe the computer and reprogram it. Ain't puters fun?

I get warnings through google and firefox... I emailed the guy to let him know.

Never got a response.
You got his email? I've been searching for it to tell him it is still a problem but cant find it.

BTW,

There are some blahblah.RU sites hosted on there and they are probably the offenders. But since they are on the same server they are triggering the google and firefox warnings.

It would be simple for John to call his hoster and get them after the problem. It would also be grounds for him to cut his contract with them if they don't fix the problem. Hosters are a dime a million out there.

Nearly happened to me when I started a web site. Found a place that would host my site for FREE! Ha Ha!

Anyhow I was naive back then so checked out their tools etc they had nice tools for me to build a site. Pretty pleased with my efforts, then the BAD NEWS. Turns out the guys hosting it were attacking every computer that visited my site. Great publicity!

Took the site down, which was difficult. Then for several weeks I got constant reminders and pop ups from them asking if I would like to start the site up again, I never responded and these stopped, and about that time I started getting inundated with spam. had to abandon the email address I'd given them.

Apparently there is quite abit of this sort of thing, so a site can be attacking you even though the site owner does not know about this.

Now I've learned a bit more & have software to detect phishing sites and other nasties, but it can happen easier than you think.
