Malware on BH?

Post by palmertech » Sun Oct 23, 2011 6:15 pm

Chrome flags me occasionally on BH:

Any ideas on the cause? If it is an advertiser, could you blacklist them?

It's been nearly a year since Chrome has flagged Benheck for me.

Might still want to get this checked just in case.

I think maybe it was either something an ad tried to slip in, or (more likely) images from a spambot post that Google's crawler picked up on before it got cleaned up.

That is weird !
On the adress bar it says benheck.com but google says "We have notified secretpirate.com "

Oh! My knights corner thread!
Don't worry, nothing's sketch over there. I got the message from this thread, but I "proceed anyways". I can't see anything "bad" coming from here.

Yup, several threads have given me this same message again.

And Griehm, it would not be from "here". It would most likely be from some kind of advertisement with less than honest intentions. If you go with less reputable ad-serving services, it can be a common problem. Not sure what all Ben is using, though.

I do not know what is happening...
Spam increased,google chrome finds "secretpirate.com"instead of benheck
Avira found some hidden objects...
Maybe we should leave the forums alone for a bit...So the mods can do what they have to...
Do not get me wrong,I am not blaming the mods,I bet they are working 24:7 right now to solve this.

The mods here cannot do much, only Ben has the power.

I found the source of the "secretpirate.com" problem. It's griehm avatar, it linked from that site.

Added *.secretpirate.com/* to my browser's content blocker.

It is my personal opinion that Photobucket should die in a pit fire for utterly breaking Google image search results hosted by them. (They insist on loading a page when you try to open an image from the search results. Only problem is that after that you can't open said image unless you open a different browser.)
Imgur is good though. And Imageshack is ok too.
