Default Firefox with AdBlockPlus is fine

I'm running Firefox with that plugin and I haven't seen any ads or malware notices.

Yes, I use AdBlock Plus 2.2.1 (both at home and at work for several years). All the 'Reported Attack Site' messages I've received of late have been intermittent... just got one again here at home when hitting 'Submit Reply' (see attached).

I see that my issue (this site's issue actually) is not unheard of:
http://www.nuxified.org/blog/googles...irefox-boycott

Quite disturbing... I'm convinced that the article is still relevant, even if dated.

I did some research on the anonymous hashing, local storage and resulting Google look-up hash masks (traceable back to Safe Browsing), but could not readily identify where the fault might be (other than a possible rogue look-up server issue).

Hopefully the worst case is that this nonsense will expire with the Diagnostic notice in their database after another 75-80 days.

Of course, I could turn off Safe Browsing...
Edit: Oddly enough, page 36 of this thread: http://www.satelliteguys.us/threads/...tack-site-quot suggests to do so, and that FF 18 (beta) might fix the issue.

I use Firefox and have not been here for a couple of days and am no longer getting a warning (when I did get the warning and insisted on coming here anyway the warning did not appear again for a period of some hours so probably has a time limit built in)

Firefox 18 was just released (which should correct this issue)! Go to Firefox (menu) and select 'Help / About Firefox' and the update will be automatically downloaded and applied.

Yesterday (ie Saturday 2nd Jan) I got just one email, and it was from this site letting me know I had a private message.

Within just a few minutes my internet connection went difficult on FTP but OK on Web Access, then that went down and after that I had no connection. Other laptops in the house were working. Eventually I fixed it with WinSockFix.exe.

This morning, I sent an email to my girlfriend (who is here with me) and immediately her internet went down (she solved that by reverting to a previous version - it said there were missing protocols)

So, it looks like there may well be a virus being sent with emails from this site. I have done scans with Norton 360, AVG and Microsoft Security Essentials and none of them are picking anything up so over to you guys ...

Is your e-mail web based and/or what client software do you use?

I've had some of my e-mail notifications off for a while. I just turned them all back on. Reply to this thread so we can see if the cat dragged something in (to my e-mail Inbox).

I use Outlook Express so my email address is of the form "bob@bobsdomain.com" on Win XP

Right! Just done a scan using Microsoft Security Essentials. Scan yesterday was clear but it updated overnight and is now showing

Severe Threat: Exploit: Java/CVE 2012-1723

It has now been removed but I guess anybody would be well advised to check for this. Whether Norton 360 would have picked it up I don't know.

Am scanning all our machines to see what the score is

For some reason I'm not getting the e-mail notifications for thread updates. However, I got this from my ISP last night:

Probably just one of my video streaming clients that uses P2P technology... but I'll have to double-check everything now just for peace-of-mind.
