Trend Micro thinks SV-POW! is malicious
June 23, 2012
Folks, I just got this email from open-access guru Peter Suber (quoted with permission):
I get ominous warnings when I try to visit your blog at https://svpow.com/. The warning in the browser says, “Malicious website blocked”. The warning in a separate pop-up says, “The Web page you are attempting to visit…could potentially harm your computer.”
Both warnings are from Trend Micro, which came factory installed on my Windows-based Dell laptop. I’ve found it reliable in the past.
Has anyone else seen this? Is it something we should be worried about? Does anyone know what we can do to stop it?
(BTW., for what it’s worth I can assure anyone else who’s seeing this warning that it can be ignored. There’s no malware here.)
