  • My website is (if you are offended by sex toys, do not visit it.)

    I’m getting this malware warning when I try to access the Dashboard in Google Chrome: It doesn’t seem to be happening when I access the Dashboard in Firefox.

    I’ve run the Exploit Scanner, which found that no core files have been modified, and no suspicious plugins. However, there is this:

    Suspicious Settings

    Some settings on your blog contain suspicious text that may have been placed there by hackers.

    * _transient_feed_867bd5c64f85878d03a060509cd2f92c

    I have no idea what that means.

    I’m trying to think of what I have changed recently, although it’s hard to know since I usually use Firefox rather than Chrome. The most recent plugin I installed was Pretty Link. I have some ads and quite a few affiliate links, so I’m not sure where to start there.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • The most important thing to ask yourself is whether there should be content from on your website. If you didn’t put it there yourself, then yes Chrome is giving you a valid warning.

    I know it’s a valid warning, but I have no idea where this content is. I need help finding it.

    not tagging your site NSFW is not cool
