Firefox has labeled Textkit an attack site

Postby NateD26 » Fri Dec 30, 2011 3:14 am

Hi.

I cannot access the site for the past few days without being noticed that Textkit is an attack site.
Would the admins please address the issue and ask Firefox to remove this warning
since this is clearly not an attack site and has never been one?

Regards,
Nate.

Google Chrome is also blocking the site, with this message:
Warning: Something's Not Right Here!

http://www.textkit.com contains malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site.

Google has found that malicious software may be installed onto your computer if you proceed. If you've visited this site in the past or you trust this site, it's possible that it has just recently been compromised by a hacker. You should not proceed. Why not try again tomorrow or go somewhere else?

We have already notified http://www.textkit.com that we found malware on the site. For more about the problems found on http://www.textkit.com, visit the Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page.

Opera gives a similar warning.

Yeah, I'm getting this consistently with Google Chrome.

You're right. The warning I got in Opera was actually from Google, as I was navigating to Textkit from a Google search.
