Same here.

It is possible to disable these messages. However, if you go onto another site that has been hacked, and does distribute malware, you are unprotected as far as the base release Firefox goes. Other add ons or other security packages may prevent anything from getting on your system.

To turn off the "Reported Attack Site" warning, click on Edit, then Preferences, then Security. Uncheck the Block reported attack sites, and click on close.

I recommend turning the feature back on once The Planted Tank is no longer listed as an attack site.

Kyle, I'm on a Mac and ever since your website got hacked I'm getting this message in Safari 5.0.1.

Is this why the forum was closed yesterday morning? I thought something was up... Anywho, changed my password and such. No warnings at all... I will run a scan later today though. Thanks for the heads up on this Kyle! You Da Man!

I never recieved any warning like taht from my AVG, probably because you fixed the problems between my browsing, and my computer dumps all cookies at the end of every session.

I had to disable "Block Attack Sites" in my FF preferences to stop getting the attack site warning.

Every time I tried to navigate to a different thread, I would have to press "Ignore this warning" and I couldn't send PMs or post replies to threads.

Strange that I'm only getting the malware message from my laptop but not my desktop.

Here's the analysis from google.

I'm still getting all kinds of warnings. I have to click ignore or disable site blocking in order to even view the site.

I have just turned it off so I can post here but until it is sorted I probably won't use the site because I am not leaving it off all the time and I have to click ignore for every time I click on a new section.

Kind Regards,

Adam

If I don't click the ignore warning, or disable warnings for it, it becomes very irritating. Every click, I am sent to the warning page, and if I do not click ignore warning, then I have the option of "Get Me Out Of Here!" and another that just opens a new tab about reasons TPT could be an attack site. So it's either not be on TPT at all, or ignore/disable the attack warning.

Default Re: Planted Tank Hacked

Kyle has been great as far as staying on top of this. Unfortunately until this is flushed through ALL the browsers, web crawls, and any other tracking that used a cached system these error will continue. A lot of what is being seen is, your browser is warning you that a breach has occurred on the server, and until all the servers (web servers, ,db servers) this warning message will continue. In most cases this doesn't signify an attack on your pc, but a warning for a previous breach. Normally web servers at yahoo,MSN, Google, et all are cleared on a 36 to 48 hour schedule, but smaller places could be as much as 7 days, even longer. As a security specialist I highly recommend against disabling any warning messages. As I put in my other post, I hope I didn't cross a line, as of now, while I can't contribute on a plant level, I can contribute a little in the technical realm.

sent from my phone, because I can't get the internet out in the boonies.
