    Hi,

    I just got this email from a friend:

    "Dear Mike,
    Our Changing Globe is blocked by my computer anti virus system. It says it's a malicous cookie attack....high risk???
    I'm no computer whiz....I just wanted to let you know.
    D"

    http://www.ourchangingglobe.com

    It's a bit worrying as I don't know the reason, or how many people it's affecting.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jane

    Run this as well as some other security scan plugins at wp.org

    hmmm...I don't get blocked and don't see any malicious code
    ask your friend what firewall and anti-virus he is using

    also do as 123milliseconds suggested

    Thank you both.

    I installed the plugin and it found nothing so I believe my friend is getting a false positive and will tell her to revisit my site after she updates her virus definitions.

    BTW I've tried several anti-virus programs but had to stop using Kaspersky a few months ago because it was slowing up my system so much.

    I'm now using bitdefender and find it excellent and superantispyware is excellent too.
