Pardon the Interruption

Recent visitors to To2C may have received a warning message from Google about malware on the site. It turns out that the feed from the Well & Wise blog was the culprit. Once I disabled the Well  & Wise feed, the problem went away.

According to the Google report on the Well & Wise site , “Of the 227 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 17 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-09-19, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2012-09-19.”

“In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message.”

No doubt someone has hacked into this blog and created this mischief. The Well & Wise blog is a joint effort of the Howard County General Hospital and the Howard County library. I notified them of the problem this morning via facebook.
