[Resolved] [Plugin: User Submitted Posts] May Be Malicious

Viewing 5 replies - 1 through 5 (of 5 total)
  • I visited in various browsers and didn’t get any warning of the sort.

    Where was your security warning originating from? Anti-virus/malware software? Google? Local Firewall?

    Just curious as I haven’t been able to find a single report about it via a web search and Google malicious site search.


    Okay, I see it now. It is coming from Google.

    It seems to only be happening when going to the demo of that particular plug-in.

    Most likely an errant report by someone. Web admin can fix it by reporting it as an error to Google.

    Or it is possible his site got hacked and the admin of the site needs to do some cleanup.

    Site is fine, thanks. That’s just Goggle seeing a bunch of new traffic suddenly going to a brand-spanking new, noindex/noarchive web page. Traffic pattern similar to that of common phishing schemes, poker traps and other nonsense.

    The demo is down for now, but will be relocated to a more permanent location. Note also that there are screenshots available from the plugin’s home page: http://perishablepress.com/user-submitted-posts/#screenshots – you actually get more information from those than the demo.

    In any case, I and others have verified the demo page, so we’re just waiting for Google to respond.

    Okay, I thought it was weird. I rarely get a security warning like that but I can believe that the site got a bunch of new traffic.

    Exactly what I need, everything installed but when a post is created, only a thumbnail is created in the excerpt. When clicking and seeing the actual post title, description are there, however the uploaded image is not there. So frustrating, any help or ideas appreciated.
