Hi,

I just go this from the tao bums. Any ideas?

 

It says:

 

Severity: High - An intrusion attempt was blocked.

 

Web Attack: Blackhole Exploit Kit 2

Attacker URL http://thetaobums.com/forum/1-general-discussion/

 

Network traffic was detected that matches the signature of a known attack. The attack

was resulted from c:\program files\internet Explorer\iexplore.exe.

 

 

Thanks.

FYI - when i tried to come in using firefox - i got the warning like others here. I clicked the "why was this blocked" link - and it took me to a nice helpful page by GOOGLE promoting THEIR security systems.

 

When I came in using IE9 while logged into GOOGLE - i got no warning at all...let me in here easy peasy.

 

IMO this stinks of the ever increasing GOOGLE attempt to be the ONLY player out there... BTW - did you know that the TTB pages "redirect" upon opening? When I use firefox, its shields prevent the redirect. Watch, sometimes, the little info at the bottom where it shows all the stuff that loads up...along with the page loading. MOST of it is GOOGLE. GAG.

 

/rant.

 

(also posted this in the general section, attack thread) Best of luck, Sean.

 

warm regards

It opens no problem via Bookmarks on Kindle but not by typing Tao Bums into Google using same Kindle. Doing that only brings up the Google Attack warning screen.
