Important Notice re WOYWW bloggers

Hi Everyone

I've been making my way through the WOYWW bloglist and on three occasions so far I have been prevented accessing a blog and instead this warning has come up. It would seem that any blog with an association with shabbyblogs is possibly in danger of having malicious software installed on their computer. I'm no expert on this sort of thing, and I don't want to panic folk unnecessarily , but thought that you should all know just in case.

Warning: Something's Not Right Here!
dragon-dragonsweb.blogspot.co.uk contains content from www.shabbyblogs.com, a site known to distribute malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site.
Google has found malicious software may be installed onto your computer if you proceed. If you've visited this site in the past or you trust this site, it's possible that it has just recently been compromised by a hacker. You should not proceed, and perhaps try again tomorrow or go somewhere else.

Hi Elizabeth, I left a comment on Frankie's blog earlier and she has contacted me back by email, there was no malware message when I opened up or when we corresponded - I am just hoping that my computer will be OK. Thanks for the warning. Regards, Anne x

MM found it on another blog (with blogger)- not the same warning but similar - she is not related to WOYWW at all but is here in Oz... and am wondering what is going on seems very bizarre.
The funny thing it was on one of her posts and closed out of it, but not others as I had commented on earlier ones, and later one, but came up with the middle post she had done.
I was doing some catchup, no real explanation bizarre! thanks for sharing good to let us know to be aware! Shaz in Oz.x

This has been going on a while now as two of my blogs I visit regularly had this on and it was all because of Shabby blogs. I'm sure it was last month as well!!

Hun, I also got this message from one of my Blog buddies sites, it was the Shabby Blogs, again thats been targeted, personally I dont risk it, especially after the intel site gave me a very nasty virus when its Certificates were out of date! Not worth the heartache, I'm popping back today like it suggested to see if it'll let me in, lol

I could not access Frankies either. Maybe it was my PC 's anti-virus kicking in. I'm not very good with things like this Elizabeth, but Thank-You for alerting us anyway. Hugs Rita xx

Hi Elizabeth had the same problem with Shabby Blogs yesterday on four of the sites I regularly visit so am keeping away for a while.

I think she'd best change her blog backing, we had these over on Quirky Crafts, and pictures of a certain young witch not on her broom stick or wearing her cape kept coming up! Once the blog backing was changed it the links stopped too. Quirky told google as well,

I wasn't following any blog hops, but got that message yesterday when accessing someone's blog.
