    I tried accessing the boards a couple of times and each time I got warnings from Google that TFW2006 is known to deliver malware lol

    Who'd we piss off at Google? I got the same error message and clicked on the details button to find out more. According to the page that came up, we have a clean bill of health. So why did it show up as a warning?

    (and would it have anything to do with the new font that I'm seeing on the news page?

    I didn't get the warning from Google, but just like you, I got a clean bill message once I looked into things, so I'm not worried.

    all it takes is enough people reporting it for Google to do this even if it's not true. They throw up the warning and then look into it.

    Sounds like it's time for some Torches and Pitchforks.

    Got the same warning logging into the site just now. Weird that the diagnosis reveals there's nothing wrong with the site, and yet they still put the warning in :p

    Thing is... the source code should be double checked to make sure some script wasn't injected into it some how... or that some change is what's triggering a false positive.

    Yeah, they say TFW2005 Boards is an "An Attack Site". I just clicked on "It is not an attack site" to access it.

    I got that. I just ignored it. There has to be a certain amount of people reporting for google to put up a warning so I expect it would have been reported to the TFW staff, if there was one, who'd hopefully put up an announcement.

    Usually if you update to the latest version of your malware...these will go away. At least that's been my experience. I've seen them too...then updated and they went PooF!! :2c:

    As I stated in the Tech Support Forums:

    We know TFW is reported as an Attack Site Do Not post New Threads in the Tech Support Forum or anywhere else.

    The staff has been informed and this will be resolved. Rest assured this is a false positive and nothing to worry about.

    I had this issue at my site a while back.

    No one has to report the site as an attack site for this to happen.

    Various web crawlers can do it. What happened with my site, was someone's sig was hosted on a compromised site. So since something at my site linked to that site, mine was labeled an attack site as well.

    That's what happened here. According to the report:http://www.stopbadware.org/reports/e65f5608adc0fd9a7eba1af83d9a95b5, Google itself reported the site bad, due to something in the radicons section.
