Thread: Google DNS blocks Bulbapedia, considers it a malware haven

    Exclamation Google DNS blocks Bulbapedia, considers it a malware haven

    Whoever manages the site, please use Google Webmaster tools to request that Google review the website's security standing. We all know that Bulbapedia is a safe site, but Google blocks Bulbapedia in its results when the user's computer is configured for Google DNS.

    We're aware of the problem and have contacted our ad provider.

    So this is resolved and it is safe to visit the site again?

    I haven't accepted the site since I saw this warning.

    The problem ads have been removed, and the site has been cleared by Google's malware detector. I've heard reports that deleting your Bulbagarden cookies will remove the notice, so my guess is that Firefox (in particular, other browsers may also do this) is storing the malware report in the cookies, causing it to serve an outdated report.
    Thanks Jo The Marten for the avatar.
    Demons run when a good man goes to war.
    Night will fall and drown the sun,
    when a good man goes to war.
    Friendship dies and true love lies,
    night will fall and the dark will rise,
    when a good man goes to war.
    Demons run, but count the cost.
    The battle's won, but the child is lost.

    You can also try upgrading your Firefox browser if you're still getting the warnings. Had a few people report to me that they went away after they upgraded to the current version 18, which was released earlier this year.
