Google Alert when visiting MMO-Champion - Final Update
Earlier today MMO-Champion got flagged as "unsafe" by Google, resulting in a big ass warning message every time you tried to access the site explaining that MMO-Champion will eat your soul. Well good news, MMO-Champion doesn't eat souls!

This is what happened in a nutshell.
  • In the morning an ad network got compromised and ended up serving a malware. (This is a pretty popular/high-end ad network and I'm not sure if I can give away the name without getting my ass kicked. I'll let them do their own communication)
  • We disabled ads as soon as the first warning appeared.
  • MMO-Champion or any of our infrastructure wasn't compromised, this was entirely 3rd party.
  • Since it's 3rd party and it's always better to be safe than sorry, take this as an opportunity to run a good old Malwarebytes Anti Malware scan on your computer.

Obviously we apologize for the inconvenience.

    If people are wondering, this is how most peoples accounts get stolen. Bad ad company doesn't check its ads, ad has exploit, installs keylogger and you lose acct. Use FlashBlock and NoScript!
    The biggest problem is all these fan sites that allow the chinese gold farmer advertisements in the first place...

    This is why I block ads, not because I don't want to support the sites I use.

    I saw this warn only 2 times. First on main page, second on General Discussions forum. And now working fine.

    Fortunately, I don't see ads here, due to a combination of Tracking Protection Lists and a massive hosts file. With Internet Explorer 10. When I run Firefox, I use Noscript, Adblock, and Flashblock.
