Applications :: Safari Malware Warning - Xtorrent Blog

Aug 16, 2010

Both Google results and Safari warn that contains malicious software. Does the warning dialog appear for you too?

Google Safe Browsing Diagnostics reveals this: which leads me to believe that third-party advertisers may be responsible for this. The developer David Watanabe is very well respected which is why this warning came as surprise.

Curiosity got the better of me and I browsed at my own risk, now I am extremely paranoid. Here's hoping it's one of those 'Windows things'.

Applications :: Safari 4: Suspected Malware Site Warning

Mar 10, 2009

Not sure if this has been reported; a quick search of the forums didn't pop anything.

Safari 4 seems to provide a warning when Google has tagged a website with potential Malware. I don't know if this Malware is Mac or PC but thought it was interesting. I've attached a screenshot to see what I mean.

OS X :: Malware Warning Only On Safari, Wants To Remove!

Jan 9, 2009

Has anyone figured out how to remove the Malware warning from google? My website has been affected by this, but only when using Safari. I have read a few posts, but they have not been super helpful. I called my host company, they see nothing wrong, I looked at the coding, of which I am not an expert, and found nothing wrong.

OS X :: Getting Malware Warning Popups In Safari 4

Apr 23, 2009

I don't know if anyone can help me with this, but for the past week or so, I've been getting weird popups when going to sites like,,,, and other perfectly safe sites that say something along the lines of "This site may harm your computer." And then when I click "Ignore" I get another popup that says are you sure, and I can't get out of the popup, and then I have to quit Safari.

I'm wondering if I have some kind of trojan or something like that. I'll get a screenshot next time it happens.

Applications :: Safari Popup - Windows Virus Warning

Apr 1, 2010

I know Macs don't get viruses. Here's my issue. I'm running OSX 10.6.3 with Safari 4.0.5. About 5-6 times a day, running Safari, I get the message I'm attaching to this post. It's a fake popup -- obviously fake, because it tells me it's "Windows Internet Security," and gives me a virus warning. The Safari screen behind the image is grayed out, so the message isn't a real popup -- it's part of the screen.


- This occurs on mainstream webpages, including google search results pages, Yahoo, and the Wall Street Journal.

- The only MS products on my computer are Office for Mac apps, which I've had for years w/o problem. They are not running when the problem occurs.

- I can click close on the Safari window (not the red button on the warning) or the back button, and the msg goes away.

- I cannot click on other items on the page when the message is there.

- [edit] Also, I've reset Safari, clearing the cache and the cookies. It's only been happening for about a week, but it happens very frequently now.

Again, I know macs don't get viruses, but does anyone have any helpful suggestions for getting rid of this?

Applications :: To Disable Safari's Warning When Open Downloaded Files?

Sep 18, 2009

I guess it's a change with Snow Leopard, but now when I download a .nzb file and try to open it I get the warning message that it's 'an unknown application downloaded from the Internet' (which, of course, it is not) and I have to manually open that. A .nzb file is not an app, but an executable file (launches NZB Drop, for me). The fact is I don't think I've ever had the message fire and not want to open it. I'd prefer to just disable it all together.

OS X :: Safari Crashing - Editing A Port Forwarding Blog On My Space

Apr 11, 2009

Does anyone else have some Safari crashing issues? It usually happens when there is flash videos loading.Sometimes a video will try to load, and the browser closes. Not all the time, even on the same video. Not too sure what causes this, or how to fix it. I notice it will also do it sometimes when there are no videos, I could be on a forum such as this one. I was editing a port forwarding blog on myspace last night and when I was nearly done, I opened photobucket to get the links to some screen shots, and it crashed on me. Kind of a piss off, especially since it wasn't youtube or anything that usually causes it. I ended up re-doing it in an offline HTML file first before posting to avoid losing the data again.

Applications :: Uploading Images To Blog - Getting Error 500

Jan 20, 2009

I'm having an issue when I come to upload images to my wordpress blog using an application called blogo (mac program), I'm getting the following error message:

An unknown error occurred
When uploading Picture_031.jpg.
Please check your server's configuration or contact the site's administrator for more assistance.
Error 500

I've tried turning off mod-write security in the .htaccess and have chmoded all the upload folders to 777. The wordpress install is brand new and there are no plugins installed at all. It is the latest version of wordpress 2.7. Its weird because I can see that the images are infact being uploaded to the folder but something doesn't seem to be working.

OS X :: Malware Message From Safari On My Website?

Jul 13, 2009

This is my first post, thanks in advance for any help. Hope I can explain correctly. I don't think my site [URL]actually ever had malware. I (not knowing better) placed a small *.exe file on my site via ftp just to transfer it from home to work. Anyway I think it caused me to get listed with google as having malware etc. (even though it was no type of dangerous file). I registered with googles webmaster tools, deleted it off my site and requested they re-scan it. Well that seams to have worked and all is fine except with Safari. I am still getting the malware notice with Safari only. I have cleared history, emptied the cache, deleted cookies and reset safari. Still getting the message. Sometimes I can open the site fine then click home and it pops up again. I really think my site is completely fine but I cant figure out why its still doing this with Safari. Needless to say this is terrible for business.

Safari :: Uninstall Malware Auto-complete Pro?

Mar 18, 2012

I have noticed this little program called auto-complete pro that is now on my computer on Safari.  Anytime I search for something on the internet, the auto-complete bar that is normally there is covered up by a separate one by autocomplete pro. It is a known malware program, that I found in my research, but most people have asked how to get rid of it on Firefox or windows, now Safari. I am running OS X snow leopard, I believe.  I have looked under extensions, there is nothing there.

Safari :: 5.1.7 - Restore Warning Before Closing Window With Multiple Open Tabs?

Since downloading version 5.1.7, when I click on the red button to close a window, it closes instantly -- even when the window contains numerous open tabs. The prior version always gave me a "Do you really want to close this window? You have X open tabs." message, which I'd like to restore. I looked in Preferences to no avail.
