ONDP Attacks!

I went on to the Ontario NDP's website and on to their "Our Team" heading - essentially to see their MPPs, I wanted to look up biographical info on one of them - and my protective Firefox browser had this to say:

That's the webpage at ontariondp.com/en/about/mpps (don't go there, I've given you fair warning).

Dutifully, I got the heck out of dodge. Not because I'm worried about my computer catching something, but more because it's obviously right. I'll definitely stay away from the ONDP from now on.

Someone should really tell their webmaster that Firefox thinks they're an attack page.

  2. I had a friend who owned a website that this happened to. It is a hacker attack. Someone uploads a virus/worm to the website.

  3. I (also using Firefox) came across the same message about a week ago on a blogger's site (wordpress).

    Picked the "get me out of here" option
