META: Malware warning

Submitted by Keeeeurt on January 24th, 2011 at 5:28 PM

I just navigated to the site and a malware warning showed up. I was wondering if anyone else had/is experiencing the same thing and if anyone has any idea on how to stop it. Below is a screenshot of the warning. 

EDIT: Idk why the picture didn't show up.  I'll keep trying.

I got infected with it.  And unfortunately I was at work which required me to get he IT department to clean my computer and for me to make a quick visit to another site so I could blame it on someplace else.

But yes....the site had a problem today.

Symantec on my work laptop has been freaking out the past couple of times I've visited this afternoon.  It blocked whatever nasty script was trying to run.

P.S. I'm using Firefox 3.6.13.

Yeah, I considered making a similar post. Google Chrome keeps giving me the red screen.

It says " contains elements from the site, which appears to host malware......."

If you're running a strong program you should be ok.

I run MalwareBytes paid version, so it's always active and "proactively" blocks  suspicious sites. 

Most of the warnings do not come from MGoblog iteself but from links to other sites.  Some sites pop up warnings more frequently than most of the links.

... figure out what the threat is, maybe click the diagnostics report I could help you.


EDIT: I think i have an idea, there shouldn't be any problems with the site. Most likely is it trying to reroute you to and your protection is stopping it.

They really can get viruses- it's simply that there weren't many viruses written for the Mac OS.  That combined with a lower user base than PCs guaranteed that the quantity of people that experienced getting a virus on a Mac was low.  But, due to the increase of the OS X user base people are starting to write programs for Macs.  Thus, now there are more Mac viruses and more Mac users that can get those viruses.  Combine that with the general lack of antivirus on the part of Mac users and you've got a bad situation.

So, yeah, Macs can get viruses and will start getting more as time goes on.

I haven't had that warning, but about 10 times in the past week, logging onto MGoBlog has caused my Firefox to crash. I thought maybe it was because of a screwy ad.

Funny you should mention that.  My work computer (a 5 year old Mac) crashes everytime I try to pull up mgoblog.  It gets to the page, then about a sec or two in, it crashes safari.  Interesting to know it may not be just me.

Happened this morning when I visited. I immediately restarted. I got a virus from this site last year and had to wipe my hard drive as a result. Damn rival fans always hating.

      Norton 360 has gone off about 4 times in the last 5 min. evertime I refresh the details are as follows.

HTTP Malicious file download request 3.

it says it is a HIGH RISK FILE!!!!

attacker URL: (, 80)

Not good!!!


January 24th, 2011 at 6:52 PM ^

     The only time it happens is when I first come to this site or when I refresh the main page to check for new posts. its o.k. it doesn't really bother me because norton 360 is the shiznit. I have checked the attacking webpage several times and I got the one mentioned by the OP as well as others now, so I am sure its a random listing of web hyperlinks that changes either due to cookies or is just completly random.

.. that domain out, ( I wouldn't recomend anyone else try it, I can because im amazing. Basicly what is happening, like I said before is this is a third party attack. When you try to visit the page it's a reroute. If your using firefox download noscript in the plugins and you wont have this problem anymore. This could also be because one of your internet ports is open, check firewall settings and makes sure all ports are set to stealth.

EDIT: For everyone wondering is a website service. osufoyysdf is what he named his page

I am lazy about anti-virus on my home PC.  Logged onto Mgoblog on Saturday AM and was the proud recipient of the "System Tool" virus that overtook my machine.  I guess 2 year old Anti-virus doesn't cut it.  Dropped it off at my computer guy's shop today and he just chuckled as he new easy money was coming his way.  Can't say it was Mgoblog for sure as no problems on work machine, but antivirus here is much better.


January 24th, 2011 at 6:10 PM ^

I looked into it a little bit from another machine, but couldn't even get past step 2 when I tried to start the process.  I have learned over time that trying to fix these problems on my own takes 3-6 months of the end of my life.  I will pay the pro and live on for one more season of Michigan football.

Same problem here: I was lazy about anti-virus, but not anymore, lol.  I wasn't able to get past that program either, until I re-started my computer in safe mode.  Re-started in safe mode, went on-line; bought Kaspersky anti-virus (I had been told that was pretty good.  Any other suggestions, for future reference, please advise).  Like someone else said - about a 5 minute fix.
