    Why is my hub showing phishing errors?

    two of my hubs are marked with phishing. They were published months ago with no changes made by me. What do I do? what is phishing on a hub page article.?

    I have just finished sorting out two of my hubs that supposedly had phishing problems that I wrote more than 1 & 2 years ago.
    Go into the edit mode on the hub and remove anything that goes to the outside of hubpages. That means links to other sites or as HP suggest "SuggestedLinks". This helped me and my hub list is now clear.
    The must be something going on at the moment, as there seems to be a lot of problems running around at this time.

      I don't think it's necessary to remove external links, especially if you are confident that the links are clean. It's an internal site problem, and it also seems to occur with links that point to Hubpages articles.  In a few days they should fix it.

    There have been some weird malware reports over the past several days.  It's nothing you did, don't worry. You might want to check the forum; staff said they were aware of the problem and working on it.

    I had this happen just now, with a link that went to a site that I thought was reputable. I navigated to the site and Google Chrome started throwing up malware warnings. Even if it isn't accurate, I don't want a visitor to my Hub to catch something nasty on his or her computer because of the information I shared. It could be because of a rise in hacking attacks right now, also - I've noticed that a lot of folks are having problems with the warnings.

    The phishing that went on over Christmas was crazy wild.  I believe this is the same Mal-ware infection bothering lots of Hubbers. Most likely nothing to do with your hubs. Simone Smith has been infected.  She's an HP staffer. I just laughed when I read she had violations linking to her profile.

    Glad you asked this, and glad the others have answered, because I too was just now shocked to discover a malware warning on one of my best Hubs, that's been out there for almost 2 years.
