Motherboards.org - Google Chrome [solved]

Postby dve83 » Tue Oct 19, 2010 9:30 pm

Hi, figured I'd put it in GENERAL and not in Forum specific section.

Just for the sake of interest, got a message from Google Chrome (v 6.0.472.63) saying the motherboards site is hosting malicious software. Pretty sure its not serious, but thought I'd let someone know (thats if your not already aware) the following detail provided.

Best to keep these all in one spot. Doc is aware of the problem and fixing it as fast as possible.

the ads have to be checked and the site has to be removed from the blacklist again. but that will take some time. quite frustrating this...
