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.

    When I saw the ad I thought someone had attacked MMO Champ or Boub let some of his lasagna fall onto the gears.

    At first I thought "so this is what Blizzard had in mind when they said people's passwords are stolen from 3rd party websites."

    But then I though about it.

    Are you going to advise people to start using Adblock Plus now as this just shows how untrustworthy ad providers are.
  1. Ssateneth's Avatar
    I already use adblock. I don't care if they're meant to support the website or not. I just hate ads.
