Trouble with "Your Century Bicycle" thread..
Anyone else having problems with reading this thread? My Browser(Google Chrome) pops up a Malware warning and will not let me proceed. Something about ravingbikefiend.net being a hacked site.. Anyone else?
just another gosling
I looked at the first and last pages with Google Chrome. No problem. What page were you having trouble with? The website you mention does not seem to exist.
I deleted some links yesterday that were on there to a site that had been hacked. It shouldn't give malware warnings now, I got them before I deleted the links yesterday
google's malware warnings are done in a brute force way. You weren't actually exposed to any malware, at least not in the last week or so.
Has opinion, will express
There is a thread in the User Assistance forum (I think). It relates to Sixty-Fiver's own website which was hacked recently. However, according to the response from Tom Stormcrowe on that thread, Sixty-Fiver has fixed the problem, but google's malware warning system still has it listed.
Personally, I think that if you are going to post a picture, do it as a jpeg attachment rather than a link. That way, it remains permanently accessible to this site's users, rather than hundreds or thousands of empty boxes appearing on threads like the Century Bicycles one because the linked sites have expired, or the photos have been removed by the user without thinking of the links to it. And it avoids these malware notification issues.
Thanks !! Im able to view alot more of the thread now but still get a warning on pages 16-24..This is the warning...
