Google Warning Not To Visit Forumosa

Postby Fox » 13 Feb 2012, 16:19

I just got a warning from Google not to visit forumosa because forumosa.org is spreading malware.

What gives?
"When liberty comes with hands dabbled in blood it is hard to shake hands with her." Wilde

"I don't know where the sun beams end and the star light begins. It's all a mystery." Flaming Lips

"a man's position here is not ruled so much by what he can earn as by what he can owe and still remain at large." Letters of a Shanghai Griffin

"It's called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it." George Carlin

The American oligarchy spares no pains in promoting the belief that it does not exist, but the success of its disappearing act depends on equally strenuous efforts on the part of an American public anxious to believe in egalitarian fictions and unwilling to see what is hidden in plain sight.

Hi,

Since this morning, every time I try to open Forumosa.com on Google Chrome, I get a warning message for malware, pasted below. Is there some problem with the website?

I can't click on the first page of this thread. I get all kinds of screaming malware warnings.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life.

I started the thread but I can't see the first page either. It does show off in "own" posts.
