Site is blocked by computer anti virus system. ..

  • 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.
