Some time yesterday morning, EP Monthly was labeled by Google as a site that could be spreading malicious software to its visitors. Those who visit this site may get a message something like that contained below. From what I can tell, it seems to happen more often with Mozilla Firefox than it does with Internet Explorer. I haven’t been able to recreate the problem with Opera’s browser, either.
Thanks to everyone for e-mailing me about the problems.
All I can say is that our programmer is on the case looking to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. As you can tell from this link, sometimes hidden code can be difficult to detect.
To be safe, please make sure that all of your antivirus programs are up to date. If you don’t have an antivirus product installed on your computer and you use Microsoft Windows, Comodo and AVG both make excellent FREE antivirus suites. In addition, Microsoft put out a slew of security releases yesterday. Please use Windows Update in your start menu to protect yourself.
Trouble with your browser? Try a different one such as Firefox, Opera, Maxathon, or SeaMonkey.
We’ll get things back to normal as soon as possible.
Oh, and if you people at Caremark, JCAHO or Press Ganey are behind this, you’re going to have to do a little better than this to shut me down.
