Topic tags/keywords: warning question humor

I clicked on “How cheap are you” In Woodworking Skill Share Forum, as did 9 Others and I get this Warning.

Anyone else get it, or is My Computer just Oversensitive?

No Edit Available? I was gone for 4 minutes at the most. I checked this Topic out by going into it from Carloz Home Page and the other 9 Comments went through Okay.

I guess I was the only one to get the Warning. Go Figure!

Rick

EDIT: Now there’s an “Edit” available for another 23 minutes.

I received the same warning 3-4 times last week. Made me a bit concerned that there had been a hack and dubious code inserted via photos, links et.al. The fact that it disappears may be a case of the web hosts protective systems mitigating the threat??

3-4 times! WOW! That’s interesting! I wonder if the “Threat” really exists.

Thanks for responding Oakhill. Maybe I’ll GOOGLE that website and see what they have to say, or NOT!

Maybe “Management” on here knows what it means.

I am not showing any issue on the site but sometimes it can be as simple as a bad ad slipped through or someone included a URL in the discussion thread that is a problem. If it happens again, send me a private message with the URL of where the issue happened so I can check on it.

Apparently this is a Common Problem OWNED by Google Chrome!

The best way I could think of to explain it was to find the Explanation on YouTube! I found it! (Took Forever To Find It, Explained, and How You Handle It.))

HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEw4E_IeJ-E

We always want more and more things that we think will be of Benefit. In Fact THIS IS GOOGLE CHROME! Does it look “Friendly”? Not to me it doesn’t! I got the Hell out of there as soon as it popped up! Trying to follow the Instructions to “Solve” or DO what Google wants you to do when and if this “Warning” pops up is Unbelievable!

There are also a lot of similar ones on the Right Side on YouTube.

PS” Whatever happened to K.I.S.S.

Cricket: Thanks for your offer but it’s none of those. It’s as explained above (One Up).

I think it’s google telling some of us to stay away from carloz.

If you actually look at the link it was redirecting you to, it will still show the warning

Here is the link from warning pic
47.60.2ea9.ip4.static.sl-reverse.com

Now the question is, how did you get redirected to that link?

Could it be what is commonly called ’Malvertising’?

Malicious Advertising can happen when a website uses a rotating type ad service and someone slips in an infected ad and it ends up getting displayed on the website.

Turning off settings in Chrome would be like turning off your anti virus – I wouldn’t to it. Malvertising is one reason why some people run ad blockers like uBlock Origin or Ad Block

Here is some more info:
