A Crazy Morning

This is not really a post but more of a lament!  


I have tried to visit a couple of blogs that I have been following a long while and they follow me in return.  This morning, I could not access them as I received a pop up warning advising that these blogs contain content from "Shabby Blogs.com", a site known to contain malware.  


Is it just me, or is anyone else experiencing this today??

  1. No, this hasn't happened to me? If you e-mail me one of the blog URL's I'll see if I can acess them. Perhaps "Shabby Blog" background was hi-jacked by a spammer and your computer virus check safety program is picking up something and is protecting you -- a good thing!

  2. I haven't run into it -- does that blog have a blog roll? I have seen times when someone with malware in a blog roll can block sites

  3. I got one of those today also. That happened before to a blogger, they had a link on their blog to a site with problems. They fixed it and now all is well.

  7. Yep, this has happened to me before too, Barbara. It's rather scary thinking if I visit I may get a virus or something on my computer! I have waited a while and gone back - sometimes it will do it again and sometimes it won't! Good luck and tread lightly! ;)
    Be a sweetie,

  8. I've never experienced anything like that Barbara... Hopefully it isn't anything permanent. :o( You're so good about keeping up with your friends, I'm sure they'd miss you saying hello.
    Blessings!

  10. Yikes! I am afraid I will catch a virus. Quick spray your puter with Lysol! :)

  11. Definitely not just you. I have had an official email from the designer of Shabby Blogs who tells me that they have been working on clearing out the malware. I am not particularly concerned, however, having read Google's warning. Nevertheless, I have removed Shabby Blogs until further word. It must be terribly frustrating for them.

  12. I've seen this on two blogs I tried to visit. Hope it's cleared away soon.

  14. I had an email from a follower that she saw it on my blog perfectly printed. I have not had an official email from Shabby Blogs, and am not sure how to take it off of my blog. My daughter set up my blog...I will have to look it to. I should add others have left comments so I'm guessing no one but the one follower has had an issue?

  15. Hi there, well, I have had 2 people say that they saw this as they tried to get to my blog post today. Many have gone through just fine though. I do have a Shabby back ground and I am sure they will have it fixed soon. My daughter said that many virus protectors are extra sensitive too and that you just have to click on through it. I have never had one problem in all the years of blogging! I have been looking through your posts, nice to hear from you again. :)

  16. Dearest Barbara,
    Oh, I had the same trouble accessing for one of my followers just a while back. She even is not using the backgroud of that site. It seemed she had got it straightened up somehow.
    Well, blogger is such a big site that we should be patient for these trouble or the changing the interface and so on (^^;)

    I hope you are doing fine, my dear friend in America.
    Love and big Hugs from Japan, xoxo Myako.

  17. I'm finally getting around to visiting people today and you are only my second stop. So far so good. I hope that mine is okay.

  18. Yes, I had that happen last night with Julie's blog. It's happened before trying to access a blog from FB. Not sure what the Shabby Blogs deal is but FB can transmit viruses...that's why I don't participate in an of the apps there.

  20. It hasn't happened to me. I have never heard of Shaggy Blogs. I'll be on the lookout, though. So sorry this happened to you, but thank goodness you didn't get infected!

  21. Hi Barbara,
    I have not been visiting today, so I have not seen that message. A few weeks ago, it was on another blog. I emailed her to let her know. She removed an image that was from Shabby Blogs and that took care of the problem. Thanks for your comment about our veggies!

  22. I sure hope it's not mine! If so, email me. I don't think I have anything from Shabby Blogs because I have seen that warning before on favorite blogs.

    If you can notify the bloggers in question, I know they would appreciate knowing so they can figure out what to take of.

  23. Hi Barbara, I have never had that problem. Sorry you ran into that problem.
    About www.befunky.com, anyone can use that website.
    Give it a try. Linda

  24. That's one problem I haven't had recently, Barbara. I do occasionally get a Google warning that some site or another hasn't been tested as safe. It's all such a worry.
