First a worler malware attack and now this?

    My Norton is working overtime. I had an attempted attack this morning while viewing one of my hubs from "worler."

    Now I just got hit with mld1.co.cc. I give up. I'm not reading, editing or hopping any more hubs until the team says they've got the problem solved. And judging by the number of people who had attacks blocked by their antivirus programs, I would suggest the rest of you do the same.

    Attacker URL: mld1.co.cc/index.php?tp=790372c292fded4

    Destination address: mld1.co.cc (, 80)

      This kind of thing happens from time to time.  I went through this last year with one of my blogs, a new advertiser on my site was infected with a trojan. Of course my site was immediately flagged as unsafe and it took about 24 hours to get the flag removed after I had removed the offending advertiser.

        Thanks Karen. That's exactly what I wanted to hear -- that it was a fairly quick process after fixing the problem that Google love went back to normal -- whatever "normal" is, anyway. smile

    I've had a couple too.

    Doesn't bode well does it? Visitors get a malware attack and the ability to block the site from search results?

      I've actually been fairly calm through the smackdown, new rules and new layouts. This is starting to freak me out. hmm

    Same sort of thing happened at Squidoo. It's probably one of the advertisers who has either been infected or they're being naughty.

      Yup. And I would bet a million dollars it's those butt-ugly Kroger ads. smilesmile

    I had these a few times today as well. It is concerning, but my anti-virus is doing what I paid for.

      I just had one from norton, the webpage was (I guess I better not say though I know.

      and it was worler.com
      I am emailing the team and I advise everyone being attempted at infection to do the same.

    lol, lrohner you need to get past those Kroger ads. They are not responsible for all of the world's ills.
