Misleading website

Post by Dandelion on Wed 08 Nov 2017, 10:28

Just tried to open G4TW forum and received a warning about a misleading website.
Just ignore it and post a reply to Google stating that it is not misleading.

I just got the same thing on Google Chrome. We're looking into it.

//MERGED & MOVED


Hello all,

If you are using Chrome, try this here. Go under the settings and unfold the "advanced" settings. Look for this here...





"Protect you and your devices from dangerous sites". Push the slider to the left, to turn this off. Interestingly enough though, I myself use Chrome too, but have not received any such warnings, and prior to writing this post I did NOT use any of the shown settings here. Maybe these things depend on the presumed geographical area (IP-addresses?) of the users who report things? Even more interestingly, I do not get any such errors when using Firefox either. I suppose in the settings there, you can look for under "Privacy and Security" for the options...and basically unmark these boxes.




And:

I'm afraid on our end there isn't really much else we can do about this. Like Dandelion hinted above, the error is presumably due to (hostile) users or visitors reporting the Forum as 'malicious'.


//UPDATE

I just saw this comment here from one of the Forumotion Admins:

AVAST BLOCKED GAMES4WORLD DOWNLOAD PAGE THREAT OF URL:MAL

Post by JANNO on Fri 10 Nov 2017, 16:45

I went to the Games4theworld download page and was blocked by Avast saying that this website contains URL:Mal.  I've used this site many times before without having any problems.  Is this a real threat?
