Cleared my history in Firefox and the warnings have not returned. I am getting the adds. Should I be getting adds since the add server has been shut down?


AS it stats in post 105...

"Google Adsense code was put into the site raw. "

So yes, you will see ads that are being served via Google and not by our dedicated ad server.

The ads are adds, not part of the core site.

Ah great! Now I am going to have someone say that I personally did this just to drive club subscriptions!


I suspect that AOL does something like that. Every once on a while, when I am browsing via the AOL desktop, it starts running slow as sin and then I get notices to buy or subscribe to AOL's service to speed up my computer...but I find I can just as readily restore my speed by using Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Am I misreading something here... or...

Google can flag your Website so that people can't reach it due to a "warning" about viruses.

The flagging came as a result of a third-party ad server/code not run by Google.

If you use Google's ad code, they will scan you clean and allow access to the Web site again?

Oversimplifying... but am I reading that chain correctly? Seems like a conflict of interest happening there with Google.


Not really.

With Google Chrome or Safari, it blocks the site and tells you why.

It then gives you several options, to click and find out exactly why the site is being blocked - or to continue on at your own risk.

As the trojan was being delivered to dbstalk userswithout their knowledge (was only stopped if their Virus Software stopped it), Google and Safari were correct in what they did.

Yes, it was from an ad, but virtually every virus/trojan uses intermediate sites to spread the bug. In this case, dbstalk.com was the intermediate site.

Does not matter if it comes from an ad or an infected web server, if a site is sending out a bug, it gets flagged - for good reason.

see this link:

http://safebrowsing....chrome&hl=en-US

Furthermore, this is not the first issue for the openx ad service in the past 90 days: Malicious software includes 110 exploit(s), 46 trojan(s), 3 scripting exploit(s).

Yes, its a pain in the a...for David and timing sucks - but such is the glorious life of a site owner :)

The bigger you get, the harder they wish you to fall.

Might be time to step it up a notch security wise.

It was NOT us. It was the ad provider and we can not control the ads to that degree. We were NOT the only site affected by a long shot.

Augh

I did happen to get a flight off today of my X650 Quad. Here is the video of our neighborhood on Christmas Day with this quick 300 foot flight.

Merry Christmas!

WOW! More good video!

How long did it take you to master that level of steady control, and what kind of video device did you use?

I fly a drone.

He got some of the info wrong in the news coverage video. I can fly 3/4 of a mile away and that one costs about $4K. (he says $3K and 1/4 mile.)

Well, it would not hurt those folks who live on here and have not so far joined the club, to pony up for a subscription. I am sure that would help. Sorry about your troubles, but hope you have a Merry Christmas.


It would be nice for more to pay. This is the only site that I do that. I actually felt a little guilty buying the two year subscription which saves some money, but then figured that was one less credit card fee :)

But this kind of issue does pop up more often than it should. Sites like this need ads, but the ad networks need to be more careful about the ads they sell. There are times where it's a no win situation.

Not allowed for commercial use. (Aka...you can not shoot video or photos and charge for them for commercial gain.) They currently are classified like a RC airplane so you have do have FAA rules.

FAA is currently trying to draft new rules however for the use of the air space.

How do you start...spend $$$. And then spend more $$$ when you crash. Like all other such hobbies. :)

Suggest trying to clear your cache as maybe that would be the issue as some others have reported.
