    Yeah. Walked in for my morning browse and..... Think i'll move on.
    On some other site a few days ago i had an unexpected message from "The OZ Federal Police" saying they had seized my browser and encrypted my files etc. The funny thing was, if i sent them $300 dollars, they would set me free. Reboot. Bye

    Re: malware

    MALWARE. The reason the www.refrigeration-engineer.com is sometimes being blocked or triggering your warnings is due to some members who have attached downloadable files that ARE MALWARE. As a result of this, RE will now revoke anyone's status that attaches files for download.

    Re: malware

    Hi Webram.
    I don't know whether it is relevant but whenever I hover over the non functioning back button.
    I get an spurious http address that is most definitely spam linked.

    Re: malware

    The site has been fully scrubbed and cleaned (notice the shiny bits)
    I might take a day or two for the warning signs to be removed by Chrome and Firefox but the site IS CLEAN. We have added more security but all we can do is hope and try and keep on top of them. Thanks for sticking with us.
    AND a big thanks to Michael Miller Jr from Innovation By Instinct, LLC. for getting us through this. I can highly recommend him and his services.

    Re: malware

    Stuff happens. I was getting the proverbial malicious code when I accessed the site a few weeks ago using Firefox. Having already been to this site I knew that it wasn't a real problem because I knew that any malicious code was not from the site originators.

    Google is not always right. And don't get me started on Google I think that they have singlehandedly ruined the World Wide Web (the Internet was here and working long before www and Google) but that's a very big discussion for another forum.

    Next, in these times, especially with large complex sites it's not impossible for some kook to put malicious code into a site. I've never been a fan of Javascript or other methodologies because it is a client side (processor stealing, open the back-door to your computer) process.

    I've designed and operated several websites. I use minimal gee whiz programming, minimal Javascript. The only Javascript I use is typically a third party weather display or a page hit by country insert. I rely on PHP to do any processing and I keep that to a minimum using it only for trans page navigation.

    That being said, it's very difficult for a web master on a busy site to even be aware that there is a problem. some sites can have, literally millions of pages and that, by anyone's definition is a lot to keep up with.

    For the users, the first line of defense is...
    1) NEVER USE MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER - ANY VERSION OF IT!
    2) I recommend using Firefox and installing two options that work for me:
    a) NoScript - my first line of defense. It is a addon that selectively discriminates the various snippets of Javascript that a site wishes to run (this site has 6) for the site to function. You would be amazed at how many of these scripts there can be on a single site. I've seen as many as 27 scripts on a single page.
    b) Addblock plus - kills most of the annoying popup adds (many of which can try and download bad javascript) that appear on sites.

    So that's it, this site is safe as far as I can tell.
