Solved "Deceptive site ahead" problem: cause from Phishing Advertising

Post by blaca on April 3rd 2016, 4:17 pm

I'm not sure this is a right forum, I hope I'm right.
and I might make a mistake about language/Gramma, so I apologize in advance.

Let's me tell about why this is a problem first.
when I enter website I receive this red page message.

"Deceptive site ahead

Attackers on [my website] may trick you into doing something dangerous like installing software or revealing your personal information (for example, passwords, phone numbers, or credit cards)."


and I believe what causes this problem is these phishing advertising pictures (It's a GIF picture orginally) :


I try to find solution, but it doesn't seem to have any button or code to do with those pictures.
except this button :



so my question is how do I get rid of it? or change it? or maybe I look over something?
or what i need is paying for delete?

Did you try following any of the steps in the tutorial I linked you to? Sometimes doing so can actually solve this issue.

The browser you are using is Google Chrome, correct? Have you tried any other browsers? Have you tried clearing your browser cache and cookies and/or the forum cookies?

Has any other users on your site had this issue at all?


That thing you think might be causing the warning, is an ad, this is how forumotion makes revenue to keep the service free and maintained. This can not be removed, except by purchasing credits and using them to remove the ads for a duration of time. Rest assured, however, that all ads on forumotion forums are virus and malware free.

I still wait for downloading tools, since my internet is so slow. so i didn't do it yet. Confused

yes, I use Google Chrome. also Firefox. Both of them show warning page.
I open in incognito window mode, it's still same.

The other users had same issue too. they sent the warning page to me.

oh, so the ads can't be removed. (if purchasing didn't happen.)
then I will try those tools first, and report result later.

Thanks again.

Solved Re: "Deceptive site ahead" problem: cause from Phishing Advertising

Post by APE on April 4th 2016, 11:26 am

hello you may want to read this. I will be posting this up on the main forum if i get the go ahead from Derri.

Please read me:
Misleading website" security issue reported by Google
Hello everyone,

Several users have reported the appearance of a Google warning page on the landing page of their forum.

This problem is due to a reaction to Google (officially announced in early February on their blog), which now partially blocks access to sites containing "misleading content" (including download buttons for malware or phishing) via a warning page like this:


If you encounter this issue, please firstly to carefully inspect the content that you have added to your forum, including the pages affected by this alert (you can see it by clicking on down details left of the page 'Warning). Very often external codes, advertisements, images hosted on areas considered malicious (...) which raise concern.

Secondly, to remove this alert your forum, you must do the following:

1) Try to see if your forum really a concern



It is possible that you use an external script that was hijacked and became malicious. So use specialized security services to see if something dangerous is this, here are two that you can use:

> https://www.google.com/transparencyreport/safebrowsing/diagnostic/
> https://www.stopbadware.org/review-search

2) Report the concern directly in the browser



Open Forum Chrome> click on "Details"> click on "report a problem detection"> complete the form.
Open forum on Firefox> click on "Details"> click on "report a problem detection"> complete the form.

It can also be helpful to ask members of your forum to this manipulation because there will be more of alerts, the quicker the issue will be addressed.

3) Request a review on Google Webmaster



Enter the forum on Google Webmaster (if not already), then go to the "Security Issue" tab and request a review.

Please see here >> https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2600725?hl=en

IMPORTANT: at this stage, Google will ask you to explain what you corrected. You can copy / paste the text directly below and join the results of the security services mentioned above, saying that your site is safe.

--------------
Hello,

We have removed the site advertising provider that displayed advertisements to download software. Its ads are no longer displayed at all on the forum. My members are reporting to me that the site is safe.

thank you,
--------------





If you find on your own forum or other Forumotion forums you visit, commercials with such download buttons (see below) or prompting you to download a kind of software "Flash" for example, thank you to send the url of the forum and the link target (right click on the image of the pub> Copy link) so that we can also treat our side.


Some examples of reported advertising:















thank you all for your understanding

Regards,
The Forumotion Team

definitely.
I read and follow instruction in announcement, and send a request to review to Google.
now I have to wait in the next 72 hours for change to happen.

and for my another question:
where do I should send the url of the forum and the link target if I found on any Forumotion forums?

I see, thanks for information.
also it looks like I don't need to wait 72 hours.

Warning page has been removed!
I can enter normally now.

Thanks for your helping, everyone. Mr. Green
