Hi there,

I made a site for a company a few years ago. Over the past few years, they have had someone else making changes for them. Their new webmaster did a run on them so they have asked me to help fix an issue they are experiencing.


When someone goes to the site, they get the error message:

Warning - visiting this web site may harm your computer! - the page you are about to visit may be a web forgery!
You can learn more about malware and how to protect yourself at StopBadware.org. This page is very likely to have been designed to trick users into sharing personal or financial information. Entering any personal information on this page may result in identity theft or other fraud.


You can read more about phishing here antiphishing.org.

Or you can continue to http://wardrobeorganiser.co.nz/ at your own risk.

You can also turn off safe browsing warnings by going to Google Desktop preferences.


I've reloaded the site from my original backup and this error message is still occuring.

The website in question is: www.wardrobeorganiser.co.nz

It appears the site is being picked up as a phishing website (which is isn't)

Anyone know how to stop this from occuring?

Cheers

What browser?  I see via Firefox....




  • This web site at wardrobeorganiser.co.nz has been reported as an attack site and has been blocked based on your security preferences.  Attack sites try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.  Some attack sites intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.


So someone has maybe reported the site as a 'bad site' on a list somewhere...

From the url: http://safebrowsing.clients.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?client=Firefox&hl=en-US&site=http://wardrobeorganiser.co.nz/



  • What happened when Google visited this site?

    Of the 2 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 2 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2009-08-18, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2009-08-18.

    Malicious software includes 7 trojan(s).

    Malicious software is hosted on 3 domain(s), including 3bj.ru/, bestfilmlife.cn/, 3bp.ru/.
    This site was hosted on 1 network(s) including AS24466 (UNIX).




So maybe the site has been compromised at some stage?  The url above (safebrowsing url) offers advice on how to get this protection cleared...

Note: IE8 seems to load the site ok... and no warnings from Avaast about any nasties upon load.
So maybe it's a false positive report they have had... I'd contact the google safebrowsing folk and see if they can help.

freitasm: Both Google Chrome and Firefox will show this message. It happens when Google goes through the site and find some malware in it.


Thought so... I think it's clean though... nothing reported by Avaast when loaded in IE8..

I reloaded the site from my last backup point so it likely cleared whatever harmful changes their old webmaster may have put into it.

Now i guess i just have to wait for Google to review the site again....

Does anyone know what browser Google uses to provide a suitable test system for potential hacking?

I had this happen to a friend's website, turns out one of the other sites on the same server they were being hosted on was hacked, and the infection spread to them all.

It may not have been the previous web guy.

The bad code doesn't have to be on your site..... e.g if you use shared webhosting and a site that is on the same server as you gets pinged by google, google blacklist that ip meaning every site on the server will get that message.
