onlineguradian.net - malicious software?!

Post by Mariofan13 on March 23rd 2013, 9:10 pm

I clicked a link to a forum which got banned by onlineguardian.net. So the forum adress redirected me to onlineguradian.net - but i received a WOT (Web Of Thrust) warning too, and a dark red circle was shown next to the adress field. Then I read the comments to onlineguardian at the WOT-page, and found out, that onlineguardian is on a blacklist for phishing-websites.
Is my computer infected with malware now?
Why does forumotion use an infected and blacklisted page for banning forums with questionable content?

Are you should that it said that Onlineguardian is on a blacklist? Could it be that the forum is on the list?

Yes, i'm sure, that the onlineguardian is or was ona pishing blacklist, and not the forum.
Here the link to the WOT comments: http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/onlineguardian.net?utm_source=addon&utm_content=warn-viewsc

You do understand that site is based on users' uses/experiences, not experts. If you are worried about your computer then run a anti-virus scan.
