    Default Attack Site??!

    Anyone else getting a warning when coming to this site about it being reported as an attack site?

    Yes, I've been getting that for the last few weeks.

    Here's what happened. Tweleve had a very big spam attack last week. There were thousands of messages posted during a two day period in a part of the website nobody ever used. Cthree did catch up to it, deleted the spam and got rid of the entire section permanently, but it seems to have set off the warning with Google. I think Cthree is waiting a few days to see if what he has done is enough to get the warning lifted or if something else will be required.

    I've been getting the warnings too. I'll be glad when the warning is no longer there. I don't like going to sites like that.

    I've just turned off the whole "attack site" warning for now.

    When attempting to go to site from google, i would (over the last few months) get redirected to url 2 short site. I would have to reload the site to get to tweleve.. Lately, google has been posting the virus warning.. I actualy got a virus on my work computer from this on monday.. I found that going to the site from a bookmark is the best way.

    It might not have been happening with everyone's browser, but for the past week even using bookmarks was bringing me to a big warning page instead of the forum. Today everything seems to be back to normal.

    Even though the url2short redirect is still happening with Google search, the new extreme warning has been lifted. Google Safe Browsing tool first scanned Tweleve on 5/22 before the ton of spam had been deleted, but they rescanned again on 5/29 and deemed us safe again. YAY!
