Google chrome tossed me a malware warning when I tried to load up the site. I run MacOS so I was willing to run the risk and click-through, but anyone else having this problem?
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
The warning came up on mine as well, but I also am running a MacOS so took the risk.
It might be helpful to Brian or someone else to know that two people have the same issue in Chrome on OSX.
Compared with the space you take up with your posts, that was nothing. At least mine had the intention of being useful.
So why have the thread in the first place? Why did the site ever go down before? If Brian knew every single thing in the world, there would be no thread about problems on browsers and the site wouldn't have crashed before. Brian is smart, he's not all-knowing.
Are we just here to listen to your amazing jokes and humor? If so, I'm disappointed I haven't gotten to hear some awesome Brett Farve/peeing in buttz jokes. Those are hilarious and you do an excellent job satirizing a "normal" blog poster.
Risk going on my MAC OSX RUNNING SAFARI just so I can log on to tell you you are being a dick. But I'll just use my phone. Stop being a dick.
Your avatar is irrelevant and odd, therefore, I consider your statement invalid.
it is good to know if this is an isolated incedent or if we should be aware of something bigger. Thanks for contributing though. Now go back to sleep.
I had the same pop up come up when using Chrome
Firefox is angry at mgoblog as well...couldn't take the chance on my pc, so I'm using the iPhone app.
Yeah I got the warning too, got it a couple hours ago
RCMB sneak attack?
Perhaps you are unfamiliar with the folks over at RCMB:
Firefox gave me the same malware warning, but I'm using IE at the moment and it hasn't seemed to notice the problem.
That says it all that IE will let you browse a suspect site no problem. While Firefox actually cares about your system.
is an evil genius who only cares about separating people from their money. Kind of like Colnel Sanders, who puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes you crave it fortnightly.
/end obscure Mike Myers movie reference
Chrome is giving me the same message, but I have AVG, and it hasn't picked anything up
"So I Married an Axe Murderer" is not obscure.
No warning on OS X/Safari.
On the plus side, the timing is far better this time then last. Sucked trying to get info having just changed coaching staffs and being close to signing day. Offseason is a far better time for the site to explode.
Just got it using chrome. On my android phone to post this...
Getting it on chrome as well... Just going to read on the android app for now.
However, it is working normally (for me at least) on internet explorer...
When I checked the Google page ("Why was this page blocked?" button) it shows that Google has not detected any problems with the page. However, the host network for MGoBlog, AS28144, "THEPLANET", contains sites with malware, which is why Google is blocking it.
It's probably run by a bunch of tOSU grads....
You give tsio's grads too much credit
with Firefox....taking my chances anyway, since I love me some MGOBLOG!
Brian says its the ads, maybe he could disable them for a day just to make sure that its the ads and not a larger problem on the site.
At least it's on the work network... LOL
I got it on Chrome and Safari at home, but my Firefox at work seems not to care.
Actually I am getting it my work fire fox now.
Must be why it's so slow here today. Mac/smart-phone party up in here woop woop!!
This is getting to be a frequent occurence here. Seriously not cool.
I think it was Friday, but every 5 min or so while having the site up it would start to open/download a file. I have a Mac so I wasn't worried and pressed cancel. Buy I wonder what it was doing to all the PC ppl. Whisk I could remember the name of the file
That ad linked above the header looks mighty suspicious to me. Hmm . . .
I'm on safari on a Mac and haven't had a problem, but over the last couple of weeks my PC hasn't wanted to let me in either. I'm wondering if there isn't a bigger problem than the ads?
My work pc is now locked up, may have to cut mgoblog out of the daily routine which sucks. 2nd time in a week,first chrome, now firefox.
I am getting malware warnings on mgoblog.com with Safari 4.1.3 with mac OS X 10.4.11 on old iMac LCD with PowerPC G4 chip. Since I don't have an intel chip, I threw caution to the win and turned off the warning and posted here. I get similar warnings with Safari on Mac OS X 10.6.8 with intel chips.
When you click through the warning to Google entry for the mgoblog.com site, it seems benign.
P.S. - No malware warnings on my iPodTouch with mobile Safari with iOS version 4.2.1 - Not sure if they access the google malware database. While Safari, Firefox and Chrome all use Webkit on Mac OS X, this does not seem like a Webkit bug, rather a Google malware database effect.
Firefox/Chrome with Adblock+ and NoScript are your only friends.
I don't use Adblock because most of the sites I frequently visit I'd like the chance to support through advertising, and occasionally I have bought useful things from the banner ads (God am I a sucker for Michigan apparel). I do use a flash-block though, becuase people who use obnoxious flash ads are not worth my time.
I'll stop using adblock when these sites do something about the ad servers. If you are looking to spend your money on UM gear then google can be your friend, you don't need ads filled with malware to ruin your mgoblog experience. Believe me when I tell you that when you get some nastiness that wipes all your stuff out you'll be kicking yourself and wondering why you wanted to view those ads.
If you use Chrome or FF you'll still get that message due to the google police state in effect. Whether or not there is malware, someone got hit and had it reported as a malware distro site.
I'm running FF + NoScript/Adblock and have everything but the MGo domain blocked and I'm still getting warnings.
This sucks. Cant use mgo at work or on my laptop. Thank god for the app
Just as I'm switching jobs from Mac to PC it all comes back...and I'm not going to be a testing bunny. App during the day it is!
I saw the thread and exited out I did not get a warning at work IE or sofar at home Firefox. Should I be worried that perhaps my IE and firefox is not up to snuff? Could I just be lucky and not being exposed? Avast is not picking anything up either.
Stupid Malware ruins half my day.
Around noon today it crashed my computer at work. The IT guy was uploading something when all of a sudden he turned to me and said we've lost her. My buddy also got it at work and may be out of luck too. Hope this doesnt kill my pretty mac at home.
load this site today via Chrome. I have NO computer skills of any sort so i just let it be till this evening.
Glad to have it back now. Was suffering serious withdrawl symptoms.
I've now installed AdBlock. This is the third or fourth time this has happened here, yikes.
i would have started my own thread on this but lost some of my privileges from expiring points
don't know if anyone else has been getting this today - seems like a malicious .exe is trying to load itself everytime i visit mgoblog - possibly via java? i'm computer literate to a point, but don't know how to explain exactly what it's trying to do.
here is the pertinent info from my firewall log
i am using comodo firewall 3.11 in case that matters to anyone else out there
