1  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: Is there a site problem? on: Yesterday at 12:32:44 am
I tried again this evening June 20th, (8:45 pm-Eastern Canada) to log on site and malwarebytes still blocking access which suggests to me this site continues to be unsafe and not secure. Since this topic began more than 2 weeks ago there have been more than 5,000 “reads”  registered.  Of the vast membership roster approximately 50 have posted a reply expressing concern one way or another. I noticed some  members continue to upload freely, presumably ignoring warnings or simply managing exclusions circumventing those Norton/Malwarebytes warnings. Others, have chosen to refrain from uploading for  the time being. And still  others have chosen to remain silent altogether (in expressing their concern).
There is another topic in the forum dealing with site security which aired  awhile back (could not find after cursory search). Perhaps the two are not related? However, given the scope of current problem, there is, (to me anyway), something nefarious hiding somewhere in the Shipspotting site designed to cause harm and/or disruption.
For all of Henrik’s efforts and hard work put into rectifying this problem so far, there yet appears to be a fix shoring up any/all  “loose ends”.
In terms of providing a so called “secure” and “safe” site, what is it that MarineTraffic and the others are doing that Shipspotting isn’t.....?
I’m no techie but they’ve  evidently incorporated certain levels/layers of (security) software thus avoiding what this site is currently experiencing.
I believe with proper (security) enhancements Shipspotting can continue to be a premium site with quality features enjoyed by many shipping enthusiasts.
I like this site’s format, the interaction (comments) of/with other members. It’s design makes site easy to navigate etc.
I know the Webmasters, Admins, Henrik, etc., put in  long hours to keep site runnIng smoothly, providing  (to quote what is under the mast head).....“best ship information”.  Their efforts are very much appreciated.
With all the attention currently focused  on Henrik to get site back on track (for everyone), I’m sure it is glitch is  frustrating for all concerned.
I’m hoping the Shipspotting team will get through this sooner than later.
Looking forward to uploading again in the not  too distant future.
Best regards to all,
andre

After reading Derek’s comment (on my iPhone), I restarted PC and tried  accessing Shipspotting. Malwarebytes program still blocking site  Huh
I did this twice. At 6PM and again at 8 PM (Saint John-Canada) time.

Earlier this evening (Eastern Canada) I tried accessing Shipspotting on PC and malwarebytes (premium) program still blocking site.
Checked settings per Henrik suggestion and nothing seems out of synch in regards to program performing what it’s supposed to do.
All the right toggles switched to “on” position. i.e. malwarebytes starts at Windows (10) start up. Automatic check for updates/scans. Real-time protection. Web protection:Prevents connections to malicious or compromised sites, etc. Of all the business and shipping sites frequented (Marine Traffic/Fleetmon/vesseltracker etc.,), just to name a few, plus a host of ports in Canada and other parts of the world,  Shipspotting is the only site In my entire collection of apps that I cannot access.  According to malware program site is still compromised.  Huh
I hope in due course Henrik can confirm site is indeed clear and safe to navigate.

Henrik....
Thank you for your reply and link. I drilled further into my settings and initiated cumulative updates for (1) windows 10 Version 1893 for x64 and (2) windows malicious software removal tool and (3) security update for Adobe flash player for windows 10 version 1803 for x64.  Still cannot access Shipspotting site. When I click on malwarebytes pop up screen “I want to continue to this site anyway” a drop down screen appears saying “you may be putting your online safety and system at risk by visiting this site”. Due to other confidential programs (sites) that I frequent, I am reluctant to add SS site to exclusions in malwarebytes program since an item (site) when excluded, is omitted from future scans and protection events. Doing so I fear jeopardizing other business sites that I frequent.
When I see other members freely uploading photos, I am at a loss as to why, in spite of what I’ve done to enhance security on my PC, still have my malwarebytes (premium) program blocking Shipspotting site....  Huh
I also checked my Norton security program and all protection aspects  updated (regularly).
Brgds.....

Earlier today Microsoft completed a lengthy upgrade to their Windows 10. For whatever reason I thought it might impact positively in helping resolve current issue I am experiencing from my side. However, tried  logging in SS site after upgrade and the malwarebytes (premium) program still blocking site... Huh Not being a techie I was hesitant continuing so I backed out.  Since this issue site related not sure what more IT (Henrick) can do from his side to get everyone back on board again (securely)...?

Hendrik,
Many thanks for your efforts in trying to resolve this security issue.

This coming from Eastern Canada (Saint John)
My PC running windows 10 / Microsoft edge

Tried accessing site this evening and I’m still getting malwarebytes pop up screen now reading WEBSITE BLOCKED DUE TO RISKWARE. Then it goes on to describe riskware with option to “continue to this site anyway”. In the malwarebytes pop up screen it contains following information.
DOMAIN: www.shipspotting.com
IP ADDRESS: 185.32.10.34
PORT: 50189
TYPE: outbound
FILE: c:\windows\systems\apps\microsoft.microsoft\edge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\microsoftedgeCP.exe

Questions comes to mind ......
(1) if I ignore pop up screen and continue to site, am I vulnerable to loopholes in system that can be exploited by hackers, putting my entire PC network at risk...?
(2) would deleting site and reinstalling on PC home screen help fix my situation?

Brgds....

I am reluctantly sending this message from my mobile.  When I open site on iPhone simply to view (Not log in) a pop up message appears in red at the top reading “WEB SITE NOT SECURE”. I raised this issue previously however, now I am experiencing a different problem, this time  when trying to log on site with PC my Malwarebytes program kicks in with a pop up screen reading “WEBSITE BLOCKED DUE TO MALWARE”.  Huh
This happened  around today around 9:15PM EST (Canada).  Did not experience this yesterday when logging on site.

Vlad....
Great travel log...!
Your experiences in Japan substantial. You manage to cover a lot of territory in a short period of time. It reminded me of some of mine years gone by. Decades ago (1980) I visited Japan riding the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Fukuoka (Hakata Station)-Island of Kyushu. Stayed in Ryokan's various places on the Island (Beppu/Miyazaki/Kagoshima, etc.). Back in the day (era of print film /slides) it was expensive to process photos, etc. Now, most of my stuff somewhat deteriorated. However, still Have a some old prints and Kodachromes (in carousels) stashed somewhere in the house. Must find them and see if anything of interest worth converting..?
Enjoy looking at your uploads from your side of the globe.
Brgds....

Just logged onto site via mobile. Pages seem to be restored and functioning properly. Many thanks to webmaster(s) and IT for quick reaction fixing subject problem.

I know subject title not a new one but I cannot seem to find the old series of exchanges discussing aforementioned topic. I tried accessing Shipspotting website on mobile this evening (Oct 31/9PM Eastern time-Canada) and to my surprise this Tizermedias "curse" and a bunch of other web sites started cascading thru address panel. I deleted web site from home page and tried re uploading (opening thru Safari to add to home screen) and unable to do so because of this tizermedias.com etc., etc., cascading thru address panel.
Wondering if anyone else out there experiencing same thing (again). Huh

Up until this morning was reviewing forum info via mobile. Logged onto site today using PC and the Malware/Norton pop up screens have ceased. From what I am reading in forum it appears the "coin" threat has been removed. Thank you to Webmasters/IT group for their role in dealing with this matter.
14  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: Coinhive threat warning on: October 26, 2017, 05:14:31 pm
Subject threat warning first surfaced more than 2 weeks ago. Since I am no “techie”, I spoke with a tech guy at local computer store to try and get a better understand of this “coin” virus and ways to try and circumvent. Members tweaking their computers to block pop up screens etc., will not make this infection go away. Changing settings etc., are merely band-aid (temporary) fixes, lending to an element of false security and continued vulnerability.  Forgive me for repeating what others have said but, this “coin” problem needs to be remedied by the site itself. I would be interested in learning what progress the IT folks at Shipspotting are making in resolving this problem, rendering site safe to view/upload photos.

When site goes down for maintenance assume it will be for purposes of dealing/resolving  the “coin——-“ issue etc. I tried signing on site with PC and still getting constant pop up screens from Norton re  (1) JS Coinminer  and (2)  Odessa site unsafe and has been removed.
