Virus/Malware Warning

For the past few days, people have been getting warnings from Google Chrome that my blog has content from which is "known to distribute malware." I wanted to let people know that the content in question is simply a link on my blogroll.

I'd remove the link, but the gadget-thing to add/remove links to my blog roll isn't working. I've emailed Google/Blogger about it, but until then I can't remove the link in question, so the warning will keep coming up.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience, and your computers aren't in danger. I'll fix it as soon as I can!

I wish my blog roll wasn't broken!
See my disclosure statement for more information.


  1. I've had the same problem, Its a right headache

    1. It really is! There's a thread on the google help website where they're asking people to consolidate their info and help google figure out the problem. Yea, that makes me feel optimistic. =/

  2. I got an email from a friend telling me the same thing. And my computer wasn't letting me get in so I could unsubscribe too. What I did was open a new tab and enter in the website address. Then when it warned me that it was malware I kept going saying I know. (I didn't like that part but needed to get that link off my bloglist!) Once I was at the site I signed in with my own GFC. Then I clicked on the settings that showed up next to my name on the site above the GFC listings. From there I was able to unsubscribe. I just hope it works!!!

    I didn't get the pop up coming to your blog just now, though.
    Good luck, hon!!!

    1. Yea, not everyone is getting it, and I don't know why. Very frustrating! I don't think unsubscribing is going to remove the problem, because the blogroll is the issue. You'll have to manually remove the offending link from your blogroll, which is the problem for me since it's broken.

      So frustrating. I don't like when I'm not able to control my blog!
