Malware Warning

Most of you have received a malware warning about this site. I got one myself. I have removed a link to another blog that might be acting as an intermediary for unwanted spyware, and have asked for a review of this site. If it fails, I will take the site down temporarily to protect my readers.

Updated 6:15 PM: Malware Problem Fixed! - Thanks to the many people who emailed me and called about the malware notice for this blog. Fortunately, my site passed when the autobots came by today, and the warning has been removed.

I think Tricia Mezzacappa gave your website a STD.

Actually, none of my many enemies is responsible for this. Blogger picked up on this as a result of automated web-crawling it does on every site.

I hope they review it sometime soon and remove the warning. I have nearly 6,000 posts here.

I performed a scan and you are clean as far as my "limited' resourses show. For added protection don't forget to wash "behind" your ears tonight.

Yeah, I've done a number of tests and seem to be ok. I have asked for a new review, and hope that occurs in the next day.

I accessed info on your site last night and although there was an alert, the info stated nothing was wrong. There was no breech?

No, there was nothing there. I had a link to a running blog that was linked to a site that contains malware. I deleted the link and then spent just about the entire day running other checks for malware on my html. I was unable to find anything. I did learn a lot, and know now that this could be a real problem. I am glad the notice went up to warn readers, but am even happier that nothing was ever really amiss.

I think AUTOBOTS is a good name for a new political party in Northampton County

Let me know when you have the facts..this is just grasping at straws. We could "what if" this election to death. Don't waste my time with bullshit.
