It's only a small annoyance, but curious. WC gremlins again?

I run another forum, and they get pretty wonky after thousands of posts - this same instability. We use the same platform. The only workaround really is to start a new thread after a few thousand posts.

I started getting those in place of the chaturbate one about a month ago. I just hit cancel, suspecting it is the same malicious trick, just a new name.

I also notice that WC is 502 many evenings, so maybe someone is trying to ferret it out andget rid of it.

Re: Report all Bugs

I have reported the above bugs to F+W.

I haven't seen the popups myself.

Re: Report all Bugs

Ironically, one popped up when I clicked on the link in the alert email, so I took a screenshot.



As far as I can tell, the website, webmastersforum.org, does not exist.

Re: Report all Bugs

Wow! That looks like a wetcanvas/Safari compatability problem. I'll report it again.

I suggest you put webmaster.com in your browser blacklist.

Far from it.

The certificate warnings are Safari alerting you to a threat instead of just redirecting you somewhere bad, so that is good.

Mackeeper is suspect software, I would advise uninstalling it.

502 errors have nothing to do with you OS, browser or setup.

Re: Report all Bugs

i've heard that and i think it is dragging down my system.

i've also heard that mac is [almost] impervious to virus problems anyway so i do question the need for a virus protection software.

that being said, mackeeper Has found bugs ... so what's my alternative for safe browsing?

Re: Report all Bugs

There is a good app out there called malwarebytes, which works great on PCs (I have it on the PCs I use for work, and my boyfriend had all kinds of slowing and redirect issues before I installed it on his laptop.) The few malware issues I have had on my Mac were solved by manually removing the malicious files, which I believe got installed when MacKeeper managed to install itself during the first chaturbate issues, when I clicked the wrong button. I have heard that MacKeeper will actually invite in malicious software, so it can 'find it', and tell the user that something needs fixed, thus appearing to be earning it's keep! I don't know if that is true or not.

The plus side to the above, was while searching for ways to remove those buried files that would automatically redirect me from familiar sites to questionable ones, was I found a great piece of software for my Mac called CleanMyMac 3.

A lot of my slowing issues were memory leaks do to the way Safari works, and eventually there would be very little RAM available left to run anything else. Freeing up memory is one of the most useful things about CleanMyMac 3.

It also cleans out old cache files and things so your computer doesn't get bogged down running out of date scripts.

I don't run any anti-virus software on my Mac. My work PC has Kapersky on it, and while I am not the admin for that computer, the company I work for uses it, and they are a wireless internet service provider, so I assume they use the best. They probably have a Mac version if anyone is interested.
