The Internet Blackout, Google, and Xat.

Post by Deku Link on Mon Jul 09, 2012 2:58 pm

Since the FBI found a network of dangerous hackers, they have shut down the servers that were connected to these hackers.

Now that this has happened, it seems Google has taken steps to prevent malware from spreading by setting up warning pages on sites that have the potential to be malicious in some way, shape, or form.

They have set up a warning on xat. There are two possible ideas that people are trying to find out that may be the reason:

1. Simply because people CAN link malware on xat, though 9 times out of 10, it gets blocked.

2. A hacker has compromised xat.

I won't stop you from attending the xat, but if you truly feel like there may be a threat, then I'll be monitoring the forum chat and we can just go chat there. Up to you guys, really. If so, I'll put up the chatbox on every page of the forum.

Seems everything resolved. The Malware warning stopped for me.
