Reported Attack Page
#1
When clicking on the site link i had this come up.

Quote:Reported Attack Page!


This web page at 4downloader.blogspot.com has been reported as an attack page and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

Attack pages try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.

Some attack pages intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.

Is this an issue?

Could be, if well explained!

All "non official software", all "medicines", all (maybe most of then!) free sharing files brings a risk!
This is an Engineering forum, consequently we can suppose that all user is a engineer or a engineering student! Therefore, it is assumed that the members have minimal skills and knowledge to know the risks and have taken the minimum caution necessary to the security of their systems.
"Blog´s" of file sharing are major pitfalls, and to know that this is so, it is clear that such care should always be taken.

In my humble point of view, only issues with direct and clear tips about security will be useful and in aim of forum purpose. Than we have a enormous discussion and lose the forum focus!
