Default Warning: Possible malware on site.

I don't know much at this point, but when trying to surf here I got a redirect to what I think was a malicious site. The redirect tried to take me to safegred.in, told me I had a possible malware infection and tried to get me to download a .exe.

I don't yet know if because of this I have some type of infection, but obviously if this happens to you, navigate off of the site, do not download the .exe, and check your computer out.

I know at least one other user has experienced this so be careful and if you find out more about this let us know.

I just tried to get on the regular "Front page" site to see the comic and the same thing just happened to me. I hope this gets taken care of because I like this webcomic.

This has been there for months. I've been telling you guys about it for a long time.


I've heard AdBlockPlus blocks it, but since that's only for FireFox, that means no one with Internet Explorer can view the site.

There is an ad blocker available for IE, but it's not as good as Opera's, Chrome's, or FF's.

Edit: And it doesn't block the redirect. lol

I'm going to guess you named yourself after the computer worm from 2000 on purpose, since you first posted here.

Love letter for me, indeed.

Just saw a guy on Twitter mention that Opera alerts you about possible malware when you look at Fanboys. :U

Who is "they?" It's on the main page right? Not the main forum page. I can't do anything about that!

Scott must be like the Borg or something.

Anyway, I dunno how much of this I'm supposed to be saying, but just so people know... a new site is going up soon. Or, rather, the same site is being overhauled and redone. So everything on the front page will be wiped before long. Shouldn't have to worry about what is doing this for too much longer, as the Borg Collective is on it.

He posted that on Twitter too so I think you're safe divulging that info!

That'll get rid of the spyware notifications? Coolbeans.

Should be out of there whenever Scott decides to throw up the new website.

Majority of blacklistes sites are compromised legitimate websites where hackers placed malicious content. Their owners are having hard time both cleaning up their sites and removing malware warnings that badly affect their sites' traffic and reputation.
