Yesterday started as a shocking day, when I discovered the malware warning message as I was trying to access my blog. Today things got back to normal, thanks to our favorite social media marketing company, IZEA, who moved quickly and fixed this issue.
The message scared me at first, because I don’t know much about code injection and how to remove malware from a site, while it was also amusing, in a way, as this happened right when I was about to publish the article about my experience with Bitdefender. Bitdefender Total Security 2013 is the security software I’m using to protect my computer from online threats and it has been doing a great job so far, for the last three years, while it also was the one that prevented me from accesing my own site to not get infected.
The so-called malware was a naughty ad displayed through one of the banners in the sidebar. The advertiser was banned immediately, but it took a day for Google to remove our warning from it’s search engine.
