malware on OC.net?
« on: October 29, 2011, 12:42:07 PM »
I'm not sure who to notify.

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,34189.45.html

^right here, I got a message that OC.net contains content from a malware site.  This message also said that OC.net might have been compromised by a hacker.

just FYI.

I just got "kicked off" & couldn't get back in from AOL. Switched to MSN/bing and got back on. Maybe related?

Wow, that's odd. My McAfee scan site indicator says green, which is good. It's a little box that checks every site for problems, if you have McAfee, and shows if they pose threats or not. So I'm not seeing anything. But maybe the site staff can check it out for you.

I have AVG freeware, and am currently posting from a public location - a coffee shop. As I am a Ludite, could be a lot of things, in my case.
