Somebody reported my site as "unwanted"?

Is something fishy with my machine, or did anybody else also get the WARNING about my site from Firefox?! :shock:
What on earth is going on now? :geek:

Anyway, strange stuff. I hope, this will somehow clear up again or was just a fluke for me here?! :shrug:

Site is containing unwished downloads (wortly translated)
Super strange.

They're just getting more aggressive with the Virus Hoax madness. I don't know what dance I have to keep doing to go against them tumbling windmills, but I suppose I gotta keep it up, doing the fools jiggy. :shrug:

Re: Somebody reported my site as "unwanted"?

I would start with the "eliminating". Try to comment out (to set not public temporarily for few days) some parts of the forum that can cause that issue - "Community and Off topic". Maybe because of the silly antivirus systems "Download and Info" that contains Verve application can cause false positive results too. :shrug:

Re: Somebody reported my site as "unwanted"?

Yep, I've already taken that offline. I hope, that'll do it. I also requested another review via Google. Sometime within the next 72 hours we may know more. :geek:

Re: Somebody reported my site as "unwanted"?

HERE WE GO AGAIN! Back without uncalled for warnings and such madness. But we're- of course- short a download section, really. I'll have to see about this, but I won't bother until I have the next update ready, I think.
In the meantime I might get to know more people, hahahahaha! :lol: ...since I ask all contact me for a copy. :P

Re: Somebody reported my site as "unwanted"?

This may be a stupid-sounding thing, but what if you wrapped in a zip file? I think that all the Dangerous! Warning! bullshit is just because you are distributing an EXE. I get lots of software (Blender, for example) that is in a zip file, or an installer package, without any warnings. (I downloaded it using wget on my linux server, from the "storage" link you have in the download page).

Re: Somebody reported my site as "unwanted"?

Hey Pony, yeah, I had it as both exe and rar there, but to avoid any further troubles, I took both down. Zip files will certainly also get crawled up, I imagine, considering what your browser tells you, if you try to open it, you know!?
SO...better be safe than sorry, I think. At least for a moment.

Thank you, though! I would've never thought that they'd go as far as declaring a whole website as unsafe, just because the "malware patrol" cannot open a file on their systems. I mean...isn't that ironic to begin with?! If the file won't start up properly, then how would that be dangerous? :shrug: funny stuff. :geek:

Re: Somebody reported my site as "unwanted"?

Maybe firefox is going wrong too - I was leaving the internet explorer with using in 2004 with firebird/firefox, but I don't know - is this a good browser for today too? maybe there are some better alternatives ;) ?! In some other webseites I have the same problem like here :)
