    Was just putting stuff on gaybay using auctiva when i started to get the 'This site may harm your computer' message in firefox. Its even flagged as dangerous in googles search results.

    Anyone having the same trouble or has all that pr0n i was looking at this morning fucked me up? :)
    A google search of the problem reveals that there was recently an error where some people experience ALL sites flagged as dangerous but for me, at this moment its just Auctiva.

    No using firefox I am getting the same and can't navigate any link there without clicking on the ignore button. Only way round it is to use a different browser.

    I went there for the first time while researching something from ebay today and AVG popped up that the site was trying to download a virus exploit...

    Basically they found malware on their servers. They thought they had fixed it then google flagged the site again. now they have taken the site down until they have fixed it properly. they advised anyone who had been on the site to clear cookies, and do an AV scan. they where owned

    Hello,
    here is the email from Auctiva.
    On Thursday, February 19 we discovered the presence of malware on the Auctiva servers. This caused Google to flag Auctiva as a dangerous site. Our Systems Engineers identified the malware through our monitoring system and they immediately began working to isolate the infected servers and take them offline. During this process the site was running on fewer servers and you may have experienced some delays.
    The infected servers were wiped clean and by Saturday morning, most servers were put back online. As of Sunday night, Google rescanned Auctiva.com and determined we were safe to navigate. However, upon continued monitoring today, additional malware was detected and we decided to temporarily take Auctiva.com offline to eliminate the possibility of further infection. We take the security of our site very seriously. We have identified the source of the problem and we are working 24/7 to resolve the issue. We will bring Auctiva.com back online once we are confident we can provide the level of safety and security for our customers that we have for the past 10 years.
