DBWD Bookmark Page
[resolved] Filled with Malware? (4 posts)

    I just tried this out 4 times this morning. Your bookmark defaults apparently to an electronic cigarette store filled with malware. I changed icon types and it went away for a few hours but then came back under the new Bookmark icon that I selected. Uninstalled and immediately deleted. :-(

    No clue why this would happen.

    Currently have hundreds of people using this without any reported problems. Quite a few raves and contributions though.

    Simple fact is the bookmark system pulls the bookmark Site Name and URL from your own site. There is no other way the bookmarks get their information. Please feel free to scan the code to verify this. The source code is open to you through your Admin Plugin Editor. We have nothing to hide.

    There are no default settings at all either.

    You might consider the possibility that your computer or browser has a virus or adware attached to your bookmarking system. Especially if the symptoms changed on their own after a period of time as you stated. I'd bet other bookmarks go to that site now as well.

    Otherwise, as I said, I have no idea why this would happen for you.

    If others are experiencing similar problems we would like to know.

    We pride ourselves in good clean code.

    Additional: Our bookmark button does nothing more than open your browsers bookmarking feature. We do not put the actual page information in. The browser does that.

    Wanted to verify there was no way any malware was encoded in to our system. Went through every library used with a fine tooth comb and see nothing that may have caused such an occurrence. Checked every bookmark we ever made with our own system and nothing. This must be a problem in this persons browser and machine. Closing this.
