Solved Security issue "unwanted software" message

Post by Phason on April 7th 2016, 7:06 pm

I got a 'reported unwanted software page' when going to the forum www.forum.phason.ca. I tried the steps in this forum post https://help.forumotion.com/t146680-misleading-website-security-issue-reported-by-google which isn't the exact same message but I thought it was relevant. However, I got stuck on step 2, which says Open Forum Chrome> click on "Details"> click on "report a problem detection"> complete the form. I assume 'Details' is supposed to be on the warning message but there is none.


I've removed the offending software download and want to request a security review from google but since I don't own the forum hosting I'm told I need to contact you for help. Hope you can shed some light on this. Thanks.

Is http://forum.phason.ca/ a forum hosted by Forumotion?

As far as I can tell. I got here from the help in the forum's admin panel. It may also be known as phason.canadian-forum.com?

Well this link loads a forum:  http://phason.canadian-forum.com/ .

It looks like it contains content that violates Forumotion's Terms of Service.

It looks like I was sent on a wild goose chase - the problem is with phason.ca and doesn't require any action from the forum hosting. Sorry to have taken your time on this.

If you can identify the content that is in violation of the ToS I will gladly change that ASAP.
