Which one of your LJ posts has embedded dangerous malware so my Anitvirus software won't let me view my friendspage?
14th-Oct-2009 07:13 pm (UTC)
Took a glance at your friends' list and didn't see anything, unless it's been pushed off now. :-/ Our software here at work didn't detect anything, either.

which at least means whatever-it-is is in a locked post. So I can keep my feeds alive.

Your friendslist is fine?

Sucks, though. And for a moment, I got you confused with another friend of mine who just said on twitter that somebody tried to hack their account, so I was wondering if somebody was just targeting you, but then I realized it wasn't you.

*uses your friendslist to help narrow it down*

Someone tried to hack Death's account the other day. I ignored it.

Hrm. Probably unrelated. But worth keeping in the back of your mind. :-/

Also your journal loads fine for me.

It's because I hate you.

Nope, testing. I'm not going to load everyone's journals individually.

It wasn't you though, was it? I can see your journal fine.

Disable javascript/plugins and look again?

Embedded malware is an odd thing for AV to complain about.
14th-Oct-2009 07:35 pm (UTC)
It doesn't say embedded to be fair. It says "The page you are trying to access has been identified as a known exploit, phishing, or social engineering web site and therefore has been blocked for your safety." I think someone's autoforwarding me.

Shouldn't be able to forward anyone anywhere from an LJ post. Hrm.

Yeah, disabling everything potentially dangerous and having a look is probably the quickest way to find out. And/or try a more obscure browser; I doubt it'd be warning about an Opera vulnerability.

Odds are it's either a phish or some very confused antivirus.
14th-Oct-2009 07:42 pm (UTC)
ooh, I have Opera. I'll try that.

Thing is, it's SPECIFICALLY my fpage. Not anyone elses' that I've tried, not my journal (so it's nothing in my sidebar). Just my friends page. And, apparently, just when I view it. I may try on a different computer.

I haven't posted anything since the end of August (yes, I'm lame). So I should be clear.

Didn't LJ have a problem in the last two weeks or so with malware being embedded through media or something? Maybe your antivirus got updated to reflect that, even though LJ has supposedly fixed the problem.
14th-Oct-2009 07:43 pm (UTC)
Nope. It's JUST my friendspage, not any other LJ pages.
14th-Oct-2009 07:38 pm (UTC)
Apparently it wasn't me?
14th-Oct-2009 07:40 pm (UTC)
Install NoScript and try again? iunno.

why is it 5.30 alreadyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
14th-Oct-2009 10:04 pm (UTC)
I hope it wasn't me!

Haven't embedded anything in a post since Sept 30, so I'm guessing (hoping) it wasn't me?

But this is also a good reminder to me not to get too casual about embedding stuff.
