    Virus Warning

    Today I just received a virus warning on the opening page of RCU from google chrome. Any one else? I blocks it from loading and warns that a virus/malware is inserted in the page. It warns it may compromise my personal info. I have not changed any security settings and have been using google chrome for quite some time.

    More than likely this isn't coming from RCU. More than likely it's coming from a third party that's loading in one of the advertising panes in your browser that you may have navigated through before you went to RCU. To be absolutely sure it's RCU you are getting it from you need to completely reboot your system and then go directly to RCU without going to any other websites and see if you get the same warnings.

    I also use Chrome and I'm not getting any any warnings or indications that anything is going on with RCU. Since I work in the IT field for my real world job I have all my systems set to scan constantly because I can't afford to get a virus or spread it to my clients systems, so if there were a coming through the RCU systems I would have gotten a warning by now. However, I will pass your concerns on to our programming staff just in case.

    Novak (apparently) has "malware" on their ads. Probably a false positive.

    Just did as you said cleared everything including cache, history etc., rebooted the pc and the only thing I signed on to was RCU and this is the message that came up.

    Google Chrome has blocked access to this page on www.rcuniverse.com.
    Content from www.rcuvideos.com, a known malware distributor, has been inserted into this web page. Visiting this page now is very likely to infect your computer with malware.
    Malware is malicious software that causes things like identity theft, financial loss and permanent file deletion.

    I work at Fords and using internet explorer at work these last few days the page refuses to load gives a warning corporate access denied due to security settings. But if I click the link in my email and bypass the first page it loads and I can log on. I think I will try that on my home pc and see what happens.

    Just as an update I cleared everything again rebooted the computer opened an email then clicked on the link that took me to this thread and I was able to log on no problem. Just now with this page open and no warning I opened a new tab and opened the RCU home page and the warning came up again. It would appear the problem is when I open the home page.

    One last thing I tried was to completely reboot again. Use the link in my email to go directly to the thread bypassing the home page. Log on. Everything was ok no warning. At the top left I clicked on the home button and sure enough the warning came up again.

    Dennis,
    I don't doubt you are having issues. But so far nobody else had reported any problems and I have been unable to duplicate the problems you are reporting. I've sent a message to our tech staff so that they can take a look at the issue, but I'm pretty sure it's not RCU and more than likely a third party that's causing the problem.

    Sounds like a virus/malware is already in your computer, and causing the problem.

    Don't think so it scans clean and its kept up to date. The home page is the only page this warning comes up at.

    Download Malwarebytes and let it do a full scan. Should catch a few things.

    Thanks for the suggestion but scanning my pc was the first thing I did before mentioning the possibility of a virus. It only makes sense to check yours first before getting anyone else wondering doesn't it? Like I said there is something on that home page my pc just doesn't like. If I use the link in my email notification and open the topic direct there is no warning even when navigating about the site as long as I don't open that home page. I even reduced the security settings in the browser on the off chance it might be that but as I suspected it made no difference.

    Try bypassing the home page by clicking on the direct link to this thread in your email then sign on see if you get the warning.

    Ok, Chrome will open the email link to this thread with no warnings. However, if I click on the RCU globe icon at the upper left corner of this page, Chrome blocks the main/home RCU page and gives the red malware warning info.

    So, something on the RCU home page is now causing Chrome to flag the page as containing malware.

    Looks like it might have something to do with RCU videos. This is from clicking "Advanced" on the Chrome malware warning:

    In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message.

    Ok guys, thanks for the additional info. I was able to reproduce the results and have passed this on to our tech staff. They should be looking at this first thing in the morning and hopefully they will be able to clear it up fairly quickly.

    Stop blaming Chrome....What antivirus software are you running? I have tried RCU with Chrome on Linux, Mac, Windows...and no problems.

    It's got nothing to do with "blaming Chrome." I can log on with no problems with Internet Explorer (other than the slow speed that is an IE trademark)...on the same computer, with the same anti-virus software (Norton), so it seemed logical that something in Chrome was not liking what it was seeing on the RCU homepage.

    But Johnny, I freely admit that I am by no means at all a computer guru. So, if this malware warning has nothing to do at all with Chrome, why did Chrome have all that stuff that I posted, and reiterated below? I didn't just make this up. Can you explain why the Chrome malware warning would have this "Safe Browsing" info if it has nothing to do with Chrome? BTW, I am not implying that this is a bad thing. Far from it. It looks to me that Chrome is trying to look out for the user, and protect the user from harmful stuff...a good thing...and something on RCU has triggered the malware protections in Chrome.
