    Default DECEPTIVE SITE!

    I perform my usual ritual this morning and check to see what's happening here.
    First thing that happens is a big red alert DECEPTIVE SITE!
    I figured I would proceed anyway because I know my link has always worked. It is when I perform a google search for "Overland Canada" that I get redirected someplace else.

    I guess google has this place flagged now.

    I use a short cut, and always get directly to the forum. Maybe the issue was solve before I got here.

    Same alert for me. I hit "Details" and carried on. Hopefully someone is phishing on here and they steal all of my Jeep Debt

    Same thing on this end. First time I've seen this for OLC.

    Not I. But there is an online vbulletin support forum. Maybe a search there for redirect site hack or similar might help ???

    On edit: the attacks are continuing ... they've put up up a jeep on the home page !!

    In the details section there's an option to contact Google and let them know of an "incorrect detection." I just did that, and encourage others to do the same.

    @deadly99 - are the forum's files under version control? The ones on the web host... If so, run a status command to check whether any files have changed. It's possible that an attacker did get in and plant some code that's now triggering the Google warning. If the files are version controlled, the status command will show you change. If you don't know what version control is, disregard this

    These kinds of things can also be caused by malicious advertisements. I've got ad-blocks installed (in large part due to such ads) so I pretty much never see them myself, but it may be worth looking into.

    Running OverlandCanada through VirusTotal.com (https://www.virustotal.com/#/url/78b...2f75/detection) shows that the Yandex Safebrowsing database lists OLC as having malware.

    Looks like you can register @ https://webmaster.yandex.com/site/diagnosis/threats/, then add OLC as one of your sites to see the results of the malware scan and identify what Yandex considers to be the problem. Google has a similar blacklist service and has likely identified the same problem.
