Google is reporting DBSTALK and all pages on it as a malicious attack site when I try to access it.
Have no idea what this is all about.

Same thing just happened here. Had to uncheck the "block reported attack sites" box in Firefox just to get back here.

I am guessing from the lack of activity, everyone got kicked by it.

Same thing here as well. I wonder if the advertising from some of the advertising networks may be the reason for it.

I checked the "Why is this site being blocked" box, and it reported (0) attacks found on the last check, and did not list any reasons whatsoever. I just unblocked it. I runs Malwarebytes and a real time virus checker, so Im not overly concerned.

I noticed that too, but I bet the ads are why someone or someones did. Satellite guys has the same warning right now too.

I want believe he is based on he has been viewing this thread too. Based on the info from the other site. One of the ad servers is likely to blame.
This is what they figured out.

The issue appears to be a nationwide issue for those serving ads from OpenX.

Ditto.

Damn Jedi trick, I'll bet.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

I'm not experiencing the issue with SatelliteGuys when using Google, only with DBSTALK.

Wonder if it's a browser thing....because no such messages with IE9 or Chrome here.

Or it might have something to do with an add-in for DBSTalk.com's VBulletin. :shrug:
