Comment on Web Server Software Breakdown: Malware Distribution by Vicky

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 04:09:31 +0000

Today I spent most of the day cleaning up celmpotely innocent sites that I manage. The chain of problems worked thus:100% innocent site(s) has thumbnail (load counter) served from second "uninfected" site that lists (has links to) third party malware sites. The second site allows sites to list themselves on a "Top Sites" list and Malware sites had signed up. The automatic inclusion is an error on the part of the second site's operators. . . But that is a different issue.SO, the 100% innocent site gets a full red flag warning page stating "Visiting this site may harm your computer". And then in much smaller text the URL of the second site (which is NOT a malware site or compromised).Nothing on that first site will harm anyone's computer. Clicking the link to the SECOND party site shows the same message. Now, clicking a specific link on that second site COULD cause a problem but NOT the site itself. I assume the actual malware sites would also launch the same flag.Now, this is like the boy that cried "Wolf" when there was not one. Innocent sites are having warnings displayed because they link to a site that links to a malware site. . . Here celmpotely innocent sites isolated by two further layers of warnings are defamed. The first site in question is that of a business client's on-line store so the red flag warning probably had a significant financial cost even if that warning was only up for a few hours AND may have a continuing cost due to defaming their reputation. This is like someone saying YOU are a criminal because your cousin committed a crime. HOW FAR is Google going to go? Other sites (such as mine) link to that 100% innocent site separated by two levels of warnings from the actual malware flagged sites. Three levels? Four levels? Any link path at all. . . AND Warning the site owner or webmaster is fine and dandy IF they are registered with google. But what about the millions (billions?) that are not. . I have a google webmaster account for my own personal sites but I had not signed up my client's sites. WE had to hear about the problem from a visitor with the latest Chrome browser with high level security settings. Firefox with the default settings did not display the warning.Good intentions, bad execution, bad results.

I could be wrong, but I don't think the article used the word higghihlted in the technical sense. It sounds to me like they showed a slide that someone had used (for example) a highlighting marker on.If I'm interpreting the article right, the prosecution was saying the spyware won't activate unless you click these links; therefore, she must have clicked these links. But again, I could be wrong. The article's phrasing is ambiguous; hard to tell exactly what they meant.

Comment on What To Do When You Encounter A Windows PC Error Message by Jimmy Daniels

You just need a copy of Windows XP, which i don't think you can buy anymore, unless you can find it on a site like ebay. I like Windows 7, maybe you should give it a couple weeks first before you change to an operating system that's no longer going to be supported.
