    On topic, Internet Explorer works just fine; Google Chrome don't work at all.

    But you have so many basses, is there a bass you still want to reach ???

    On topic: no such messages at all on any device.


    Right number of basses to have: the current number of basses you possess... +1! :lol:

    I'm also attempting to get whoever administers the SQL database to disable one of the old plugins that can cause this.

    Thing is this problem is recurring. Every now and then it pops up again. Also, at the same time when clicking links on google to this forum one ends up on filestore72.info instead, but only the first time you click that link on google. The second and concurrent times you click it you will end up on the forum as you should.

    Now then here's what really happens: Whenever the person who hacked the forum a long time ago places new malware on his filestore72 space, google will find that through the hacked referring code that has been on this forum for ages now. As a result Google flags the forum as malicious and it is, but only when referred to through google links.

    The mechanism is quite clever and fixes for it have been existing for a long time too. But Warwick personnel has chosen to ignore the source of the problem.

    Usually the malware is removed quickly at filestore72 (probably by their own admins), causing the forum to lose its malicious site flag at google.

    I have known this for years but was always ignored. It caused me to drop my admin role and I really couldn't care less now if this forum lives or dies. Warwick themselves do not care so why should I.

    Screw it.

    I don´t agree and like your last sentence, Marco. I do care about the people that makes this forum, not the platform itself.

    If the people that have the power to make this site safe for use is not interested in keeping it going, we, the ones that are interested in keeping the "forum", should move on and find a place where we could make it work and keep the good vibe and knowledge about Warwick and bass world.

    My 0,02 euro cents.

    This sentence will make them fix the problem, if they read this at all.
    If not, Nacho has the solution, why loosing members, loose the net location, make another, and save the community.

    The “Deceptive site ahead” security error message in Google Chrome is a security protocol that blocks you from landing on deceptive websites. Google explains that deceptive websites may trick you into doing something dangerous like installing software or revealing your personal information (for example, passwords, phone numbers, or credit cards). A “Deceptive site ahead” security error may also be produced if your browser attempts to redirect to websites known for online scams, including tech support scams and advance-fee fraud.
