We have already notified www.tellthechildrenthetruth.com that we found malware on the site. For more about the problems found on www.tellthechildrenthetruth.com, visit the Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page.
And so it starts.
I’ve had Tell the children the truth .com in my bookmarks for almost 10 years and go there often. I have never had a problem with it.
I just went over to it and got a GOOGLE WARNING OF MALWARE.
Something is fishy here. Has the site been hacked?
You should uninstall it and use an alternate browser.
The YaHoo! Search Engine show “OK” (Green) on both FR and the other site mentioned.
Same thing with Bing.
I just tried it in Chrome and got nuttin.
It stopped the Warning a minute or so ago.
I just opened the page again, the warning of malware came up, and I hit the “Ignore this warning” down in the right lower corner. The page opened just fine.
I notice I still have a red banner with the “Warning Attack Site” on it.
There is a “Get me out of here” button and a “This is not an attack site” button on the red banner.
Again, I have been to this site many times over the last ten years and this is the first time I have ever seen a warning on it.
Norton rates the site as OK.
Norton Safe Web found no issues with this site.
A complete scan by symantec reported no problems.
Total threats found: 0
When I typed in the name in directly in my non-public alternate personality machine.... it showed up fine.
Sounds like the moslems got to google. Didn't that used to be called a social engineering hack?
I started a scan on my box just in case. This is no fracking joke or politics of envy against Google.
We’ve got to remember that these anti-malware outfits each have their own definition of what to consider malware.
Use Mozilla Firefox. Get rid of the crap.
I just got the exact warning at 9:35 central.
We tested this site and didn't find any significant problems.

Any details from Google?
False positive, apparently, like the STD tests on Paris Hilton.
This is one of the times that I wish F.R. had a “like” button :)

Not so long ago, I searched Google for Fiji, and the official Fiji government site description said, “Buy Viagra on-line! Cheapest prices!” Since I don’t think the government of Fiji is selling Viagra, I put in a report to Google about it. It was fixed within a minute, and the Fiji government site now says “Official Fiji Government website...”
Google’s search engine malware detect thing seems to just occasionally get false positives. I’ve seen on it on really random stuff. Usually gets corrected quickly.
Methinks that Google is acting like a nObama apologist here, since the content is definitely anti-Muslim!
You “Like” that someone dissed Chrome? Again? For the millionth time? How original! What evil humongous company’s browser do you use?
When I click on the link to your FR homepage I get a pop-up warning saying...
There’s been a lot of that lately.
Wow! Time to fumigate the litterbox . . .
"The Googles, they do nothing!"
I added this to my computer maybe a year ago and it’s excellent. It is a “do not track” program that blocks everything.
There’s been a lot of that lately.
Often times that is due to a re-direct within your own system or router. Wouldn’t know for sure that the site was compromised except to go in through a completely different route. The rapid correction makes it more likely the problem was on your machine, since actual changes take time to install and/or propagate. It would have been interesting to know the actual IP you were accessing before and after the fix.
Joe Bloe is evil. No conjecture, just fact.
Wow. Impressive reply.
Thanks for that.
Wow. Impressive reply.
Thanks. I wonder though if it’s not too late, as they already know everything there is to know about us.
Get in the litter box.Now.
I will as soon as you perform a miracle of malware disappearance.
I know one thing, homie - once you identify your Internet browser, or just mention a name of an Internet browser, any browser, it’s in a way like mentioning the name Mohammed, provocative, a swarm of wild fools will react immediately with posts saying confidently that it is certifiable evil, (a fact not a conjecture!) literally Communist, abortionist, etc.
I thought we were FRiends.
If you use Linux, installing Chrome is apparently now the only way to get Flash updates. No new versions of Flash will be released for other browsers.
Google Chrome is certifiably evil.
Yet their corporate motto is "Don't be evil." I'd call that Orwellian, but Google has my IP address...
We are, which is why I’d expect FRiendly miracles!
