Dear readers, visitors to my site are being warned by Norton (firewall) not to click on my site because of a web attack: The only dangerous thing on The Big Wobble is the news items I publish!


Dear readers, many visitors to my site are telling me their Norton (firewall) has warned them of a web attack if they click on my site. Ladies and Gentlemen, I have a freely available blog from Google, the same Google Blog shared by billions of people around the world, there is nothing dangerous on The Big Wobble except the news I report!

In just two days, the traffic to my site has dropped by more than 50%. What is happening is not a coincidence, I hope my loyal and regular readers keep coming back, Thank you for your wonderful support.

I am trying to contact Norton to get to the bottom of this (Just got off the line with someone in India, I don't think he had any idea what I was talking about!)

It's probably the lack of "https". https used to be rather expensive and difficult to maintain. I use Wordpress, and the web hosting company I use gives a free https capability. Along with the plugin: "Really Simple SSL" it is amazingly easy, and I need not do anything more. I don't know what Blogger offers you. To be honest, I would normally stay away from an unsecured site like yours, it's just that the content is so darn compelling! :)

They would like for people to remain ignorant and not think for themselves. God bless all of you.

Thanks, Larry, I'll check it out

Hi Gary, Love your site. I have been getting a warning from Malwarebytes that there is a trojan on your site. I have Google and it shows your site as unsecure. I also felt it was because of the content in your messages. Keep up the good work--it is very much appreciated.

Thanks, Kats xx

Thanks for the warning, Gary!
You're obviously doing something right if you get such blow back.

To me it's almost an endorsement of a site if it is being blacklisted. As long as they don't remove the site.

However, a warning like this keeps me some times away from sites and sometimes doesn't allow me to access at all. So I appreciate the problem. I hope you can get this straightened out...

Bill Liffers, It is not just Norton. When I click on your posts on Facebook News Feed I get a pop-up from Kaspersky warning me of malicious content. I usually attribute it ads posted by Google, but it does not stop me from reading the information you provide.

Melissa Finney Sorry to hear this Gary I dont have any problem getting in

Gary Walton said...

I don't have any ads from Google, Bill

Bill Liffers You are correct ... Just double-checked. And, as soon as I loaded an article Kaspersky gave me a malicious content warning.

Janice Liddle I have Trend and it always warns me that your site is malicious, which I ignore btw....

Yes, it is more than just "https". I just upgraded to Malwarebytes Premium to examine your issue, and with every click or refresh it catches a trojan. Here are a few brief notes on three events:

-Website Data-
Category: Trojan
Domain: s05.hostcontent.live
IP Address: 212.32.255.12
Port: 443
Type: Outbound

I had this problem on one of my sites, and the only answer was to seriously complain to my webhost to root out the problem. They fixed it.
