First, I’m full of what?

What a rude way to talk to a stranger! Secondly, they have my email and contact information why on God’s green earth would i want to upload a virus in PUBLIC!!!!. Anyone worth their salt running a forum understands how to verify a person. Lastly, I’m attempting to speak with the Admin of this site and be helpful, NOT someone who doesn’t UNDERSTAND NETWORKS like one I RUN. So i would appreciate it if you don’t have any knowledge or experience that you kindly drop out of the thread.

I get this identity phishing alert from Symantec on just about every page of the site and have ever since I’ve been coming here. Which is last June (2011). I’m sure its innocent but its NOT my IMAGINATION. I made a PDF of the Symantec report. I can give it to you any way you are comfortable.

 

Sorry we have so many spammers on here it gets ridiculous

The screenshots go to photobucket, with the image in a link.

I got of a lot of things with Norton that would pop up but wasnt bad. I use Avast pro and have never seen a warning for this site.

i get the warning on every page, with Firefox 10.2 and a few versions backwards, on the Macintosh. It doesn’t happen in Safari.

the 1st too just talk about phishing protection, and that is common. The 1st 2 show there is 0 computer threat, the 3rd picture is damaging, even though there is no real threat. Yahoo is the most common phishing site I know and Im wondering if its listed.

Not sure I’m following you correctly. but look at the bottom of page 2, it has the URL that’s causing the warning, near where it says Phishing attack. Sure, it’s not registering a computer threat but if you’ve ever had identity theft, that’s just as bad if not worse.

I would add, on that machine I’m running Norton 2.2v build 16

anyway, i just wanted to bring this to someone’s attention. For me, it’s just annoying. For other less tech savvy folk, might run them off.

Best regards,

Kevin

http://www.kevinvandam.com/store/images/medium/admin/update/unitedkingdom/habc.co.uk/blogin.html and http://www.kevinvandam.com/ take me to the same page. Thru viewing the source I cant see anything that is bad. It looks like an login link, yet there is no login on that page.

I use AVG free version for 5 years now and i never have any issues.

Here is the link for the 2012 version: beats paying for your anti-virus and it works! Plus you download it from CNET.

http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition-2012/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?tag=contentMain;contentBody;1d

Make sure you uninstall your current anti-virus first before installing AVG. AVAST is good also and it is free too!

I hate Norton and Mcafee and you have to pay for it.

Hi guys, I think this all stems from a security breech in the store over 2 years ago that we quickly fixed. Nothing was ever damaged it was a case of “phishing”, not data mining. Someone tried to set up a false URL through the KVD store which we quickly squashed. And then changed all passwords. Unfortunately this raised a flag with google at that time. So what you are seeing is a ghost of that past security breech.

One unfortunate side effect of that Norton software is that it can be over-sensative. Coing in the way of your internet viewing and usage experience.

If you ever feel a new issue is arising please let me know.

Also, i have the ability to ban IP address’ and member names, as well as email suffixes. If you want to start a thread to report spam i’ll start permanently banning these people.

thanks.

I have to put my 2 cents in here folks…Norton and McAfee are not worth the money.  I have spent the last 2 years in InfoSec areana and I never had a peer that had good things to say about either.  Look at some independent testing you’ll see that they are at the bottom of the list most of the time.

I have had good luck with AVG….I also like malwarebytes but even the best lets 40% through….Antivirus is only part of the answer.  Nobody should think they are safe no matter how much they pay.
