Malware warnings caused by vulnerability in ad server Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Yesterday, September 16th, 2010, a security vulnerability (http://blog.openx.org/09/security-update/) in our ad server allowed an attacker to inject malicious JavaScript into the ads served on our site. As a result, Google flagged our site as potentially hazardous.

A number of other major sites were compromised as well, including The Pirate Bay (http://www.thinq.co.uk/2010/9/17/pirate-bay-ad-flaw-downs-more-servers/) and After Dawn (http://www.afterdawn.com/news/article.cfm/2010/09/12/ vulnerability_in_openx_advertisement_server_afterdawn_s_ads_affected_as_wel
l
).

We have patched the security hole in our ad server and remedied the damage caused by the attacker. Malware is no longer being served by our ad server. We have contacted Google to have the malware warning removed from our site.

A big thanks to all our loyal users who sent us emails early yesterday morning warning of the strange behaviour!
