Just got this when I tried to log into cacherstats.com

"This web site at www.cacherstats.com has been reported as an attack site and has been blocked based on your security preferences."

Anyone know anything about this?

Google keeps track of sites that it finds that has malicious software that is installed without user consent. Firefox references this database whenever you go to a website and throws that warning up for the bad sites.

So does that mean this site is not safe? Is the site itself a problem? Obviously it has been harvesting data from geocaching.com. Is this the problem? Or does it mean the site is a victim of malicious attack from outside?

By the sounds of it, it is not the site itself, but probably a malicious banner ad or something similar.

I too was just in cacherstats and got the same message. It says that an outside source may have installed malware into the sites without the consent of the actual site itself. I'm running anitvirus just to be safe.

That's cause the BC rankings are hosted at cacherstats.com Mr. Green

In order to protect members that may not have the latest anti virus protection, it might be an idea for the BCGA to disable the BC statistics link until the problem is resolved.

Ok I think I did just that Scruffy. If I did it right you shouldn't be able to see it. Baconboy is on vacation so you just got me. I know run for the hills because I have keys to the system.

Good job, Mr. Catapult Jeff. I don't see the link right now.

Now that CanadianBacon is gone you can change the web site's theme to unicorns and rainbows. **snarfle**

After all that work it looks like the threat is over. Checked out cacherstats today and the warning is gone.

So like now I have to figure out what I did and turn the link back on. Let's see, Ctrl Alt Del nope that wasn't it.

Yes, the ban has now been lifted from what I can see. Thanks Mr. Catapult Jeff for taking action. The link may now be reinstated.

I am gone? When did that happen? I feel like Paula Abdul and American Idol! Ok Ok. I'll do it for only 2.5 Million a year. Sad
