Thanks...but we are kind of past that. :)

Please Note...It first states..."This site is not currently listed as suspicious."

They are reporting what the BAD domains are that were found in the code that were hosting the code. (The ad code in this case.)

It also stated..."The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-12-28, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2012-12-25." Which is when I got to work on fixing it.

At this point...FF is giving false positives as also seemed to have been noted.

Thanks

Chrome is your friend over IE. IMHO. You say it locked up FireFox and then your computer. To me that reads you have other issues as it seems FF is the issue as the site should not lock your computer. (Or even FF) IMHO.


It is definitely a FF issue. I will have to try Chrome. IE keeps logging me off DBS even after checking the remember me box.

I'm too invested in using FF to deal with this. So I just unchecked the box:

I'll wait a week a recheck it. I can only remember getting blocked a very few times.

Odd ... I have FF (17.0.1), I have that box checked and have not seen a problem.

Could it be a setting somewhere else, or is it our providers servers interacting.

I still haven't seen any issues, running Firefox 18 beta... but since it is a beta, I can't be sure if my experience is common.

I have FF 17.0.1 (via Comcast) and get the warning repeatedly. As a result, I solely am using Chrome to view the site.

I use the nightly builds of firefox and have not had an issue with accessing dbstalk. I do not get warnings at all about dbstalk being a reported attack page.

See Mozilla bug 820283. Firefox 17 apparently is not updating its internal cache of the reported site list properly when a site drops off the Google list. This is reported to be fixed in Firefox 18, due to be released in a week or so.

Meanwhile, users of Firefox 17 can force Firefox to check the current list at Google every time, instead of relying on cached data, as follows:

Enter about:config in the Address/URL bar.
Press the big button to bypass the warning (if you haven't turned this off already).
Enter confirm in the Filter bar to limit display to just options containing 'confirm'.
Double-click on urlclassifier.confirm-age and change the value to 0.

According to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases , the next release is scheduled for the week of January 6th. This was pushed back one week because the six week release cycle ended up on New Years Day.

That makes sense. My "urlclassifier.confirm-age" is set at 2700 but I did not visit DBSTalk when the site was actually on the naughty list. So apparently it did not enter my cache.

FWIW, this attack warning would pop up several times a day when I clicked on a link taking me to a subscribed thread. However, everything has been just fine the last couple days or so (crossing my fingers).

This is on FF, my default browser, BTW.

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.

Still getting the warnings on Firefox 17.0.1 on all machines.

I'll try the cache fix.

Firefox 18 is now available for download, and you can force an update as well.
