So something very strange. Several people contacted me, saying that my blog was giving them malware warnings. I did the usual routine- checked my theme files, ran the Exploit scanner plugin, checked the site myself (no message or warning for me) and nothing was out of the ordinary. The other weird thing is that some people said they only got the message some of the time- other times, it was fine.
I had a visitor take a screenshot of what she was seeing.
As you can see, it lists sexybookmarks.js as the culprit. HUH? I checked the plugin files and nothing has been modified (and I’ve been using this plugin for months now with no issues) I deactivated the plugin and had her check again and she no longer gets the warning.
So! My question: is anyone else noticing this behavior?? It’s possible that it’s just something unique to different virus monitoring software (which would explain why some people see the warning, others don’t) I did some Google searching but this doesn’t seem to be a widespread thing… very very curious!
