In summary:
Google says they have detected malware on our site but can't tell us what or where, we've checked and cant find any. We've told them that we can't find any and they've said they think there is but still can't tell us what or where.

Cheers Jeltz,
Is there anything members can do to help like emailing same person or contact in google so we can have this sorted ?
There has to be someone who works in google on the forum also who could help !

This started on 10th May. The situation Jeltz describes is a stalemate. There seems to be nothing further to be done from this side. We live with it in the hope that one day an update to Google's robot algorithms corrects this.

Just responded to the other thread, but I might be able to help with some tools I use as part of my trade. Can't promise I'll find anything, but with one of the admins' permission I can give the site a scan and see if anything comes back. I need permission as use of the tools can be classed as hacking without the site owner's say so.

Just give me a shout if you want me to have a go. I'd run it at a non-peak time just in case of any Denial of Service it could potentially cause, although that's unlikely to be honest.

Hello all - I haven't logged in for months due to this issue (my browsers simply wouldn't allow me to click through the warnings). Now it seems those warnings have disappeared.

Looking through the unread forum posts, activity seems to be way down - I assume because a lot of members had the same problem I had? I literally couldn't tell if the forum was still online.

Maybe an email to all members to give them an update?

Was sent last week ;) . . . Hotmail accounts probably ended up in the spam folder though :(

please note:The use of punctuation, bold, underlining, italics, and different sized type, follows the convention used in writing, for many years, to place emphasis on the point being made, and to highlight the importance of that point in the opinion of the author. It is not the intention of the author to shout, if that was the case the author would adopt the, much more recent, convention of using all capital letters.

Nope, didn't get it at all. I seem to remember we had problems with hotmail accounts when the forum was first set up?

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

I'm Gmail and I didn't get it either. I'd been trying every so often on the off chance.

The last email I got was 27th August as I was subscribed to this thread after posting but nothing admin/general related from this forum.

I use zoho.com for forums with a filter to forward to gmail then move to trash (zoho trash deletes emails over a month old, nothing in spam)

My future plans include not much

my hotmail has nothing in the junk/spam folder and certainly nothing in the inbox.
