I disabled their "warnings" today, even before you reacted. But if you think for a second that you can control what code "hackers" inject into some of your outside banners - you are a a fool. Especially the gambling site banners, the most common place for malware injection.

I don't know...not sure if I trust this site... Laughing after all it let's Koogle's on it. Shocked and the knowledge base of game critique Csimbi Confused Both considered also as toxic entities.Surprised ah well if not just to read Koogle's idiotic posts I'll disable the option. Can't pass up on the laughter Koogle's idiocy brings to my life. Laughing Very Happy

I don't have any banners here for two years. Only sponsor logos and they are static images (JPG, PNG) located on my webserver under ggmania.com/img

The problem is something else:

That is a very good move on your part then. I just assumed you would have them deep linked like most sites do. Forgive me Smile

That is just silly, they point to some SQL link entry and provide no actual proof of threat. It as if you have word "cheat" tied to anything that links to something it's a "threat". Wonder ifrenaming "cheat" to anything else would straight up fix the problem Very Happy

Pfft. Gameguru has been blacklisted years ago (first at Firefox 49 or 54, was it?), turned off this shit in Firefox years ago.
I can't even remember this shit anymore.
Why are we talking about this shit now?
Did some new shit hit the fan? Very Happy

I decided to leave it on but you can click your way past it, at least in Firefox. I basically never see it trigger, so I left it in case it comes in handy.

I actually don't mind it, it's a good feature for the total idiots that comprise 99% of all web users. It's amazing what some people will click on, and what information they'll just fill in anywhere when asked.

But yeah, I'm not worried about stuff I need to click on to download. I'm mildly concerned with stuff that can be served via banners and flash and whatnot.

But hey, that's what Sandboxie is for - I run my entire Firefox sandboxed, and have the sandbox set up to throw away all the data that changed when I close the browser.

Sanboxie has already been defeated multiple times. Bufferzone is better, imo.

my company has outright blocked your site. apparently they say your site is deemed unsafe and has come up several times for attempted phishing. guess I'll only be able to come here on my own internet. such is life...
