Malicious by Warren Bull

Malicious by Warren Bull

I was kidnapped, sort of. When I tried to get into the Writers Who Kill blog, which is from a group of bloggers including me, my antivirus program would not allow it. It appears that the WWK name has been stolen. Someone added dot NZ to the end, which is the designation for New Zealand. That website is described as “malicious.”

 I  lived in New Zealand when it happened so I could not get on my blog. Even when I went to a site that promised I could read blogs from the United States I was denied access to the real blog. Actually, I was told I could go ahead at my own risk to get on the NZ site. After four or five days my computer allowed me to get on the real Writers Who Kill blog. Thanks, Norton Security. I want to warn all the New Zealand readers to stay away from the fake blog.

There was and is no problem with the real blog in the United States.

The malicious website was a “Trojan,” i.e. it was pretending to be something it was not to lure people onto the site where any number of bad things might happen. 

Have you been the target of malware? 


Margaret Turkevich said...

yes, I've been a target but never a victim. My super-duper software takes care of that.

Gloria Alden said...

Fortunately, I don't think I have, but I think Kaspersky takes care of anything like that. It would be incredibly frustration. I'm glad you got everything straightened out.

E. B. Davis said...

I've been a target, too. But so far, so good! I resent them using our name. They don't care about us, but I care about our readers. Thanks for writing this blog, Warren. Hopefully, our readers will understand after reading your blog and stay away from the New Zealand fake.

So far, my virus protection program has stopped a number of potential problems from happening. I don't entirely trust any internet connections, but it's such an integral part of life now, I don't see any way to avoid all possible risk. It's like anything else--take sensible precautions but don't let it rule your life.
