Problem with Firefox and Google - advisory
« on: November 13, 2018, 10:54:21 PM »
Hi Marius and team,

Yesterday I went to the RadioDJ Homepage after Firefox updated.
When I clicked on the link to your homepage I got a full screen RED page saying this site has unwanted malicious software.

I had to go into details and then on the small link to get to the website.

You will want to fix this as it is denigrating you and your website even though it is completely wrong.

Now, I believe one of the so-called problems is that you don't sign your software.
What I propose is that we fundraise the cost of you doing this. RadioDJ software is free (Donationware) and I think this is a way to help you out so it does not incur costs to you and it gives a chance for all of us to help you.
I can't speak for everyone but I would love to be able to do something to help you in a meaningful way and I believe that if the problem can be mitigated permanently. that would be a meaningful way to help you. One less thing to stress about too.

How much does it cost to sign your software ?

Sincerely yours,
Chris

Go to https://safebrowsing.google.com/safebrowsing/report_error/?hl=en fill in the form.

If many do this they realize that the site radiodj.ro is safe.

Thanks Jhonny.

Hi!
I went to https://safebrowsing.google.com/safebrowsing/report_error/?hl=en and did as sugested.  :)

Two things that can be done to make sure this does not happen in the future.

1. Move the site to HTTPS (Secure site) as Google in general dislikes sites only using HTTP. Google is writing about this from time to time.

2. Remove the direct download file (.exe) as .exe-files are well known for being viruses and the beginning to much pain for computer owners.
A small workaround would be to put it in a .zip / .tar / .gz file structure. This, sometimes, makes it easier to download and also might avoid the antivirus software when downloading. It will pop up when you unpack, but then you at least have the files locally stored.

Okay - update on where this is at.

Moderator - you can move this to a more appropriate forum if you wish :)

I don't get the big red screen any more BUT I am getting alerts from Avast (PITA but this has happened on and off for some time), and I'm having Windows Defender also chiming in and compaining about reports.exe

Is there something we can help Marius with that will stop or reduce the incidence of these fallacious reports ?
I keep on reporting the problems to AVAST and MS but nothing seems to be happening about it.

Regards,
Chris

Later addition: I keep on having to restore the files back which in a PITA.

IN Holland the site through Chrome is back so no "red flag" there, Old version Firefox is also back with no "red flag". Seems like it's working again.
Running 3 editions V1.8.2 at www.salto.nl and v1.8.2 at radio251.nl. ( NOW with 2 live studio's! )
