Malware Worry::June 15

I typed my blog addy onto my computer and was warned that "merriemelody.blogspot.com contains content from sweetgrace.typepad.com, a site known to distribute malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site." "The Inadvertent Farmer" at sweetgracedottypepaddotcom has some kind of malware affecting it, so I have taken Kim's blog off of my favorite blogs list for now. I wish her blog a speedy recovery and hope that she posts soon. I ♥ her blog!

  2. GlowWorm, when I went to your site, at first there was no problem, then this warning popped up:

    "Warning: Something's Not Right Here!
    marvelouspigs.blogspot.com contains content from handmadecathygaubert.blogspot.com, a site known to distribute malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site.
    Google has found malicious software may be installed onto your computer if you proceed. If you've visited this site in the past or you trust this site, it's possible that it has just recently been compromised by a hacker. You should not proceed, and perhaps try again tomorrow or go somewhere else.
    We have already notified handmadecathygaubert.blogspot.com that we found malware on the site. For more about the problems found on handmadecathygaubert.blogspot.com, visit the Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page."

    So, if you get rid of the link to their site your blog should be safe. Good luck!
