#480 Oh no!


We had a bit of a fright. Wednesday night I went to check our blog to upload a new post and I got a dire warning (see below) about nasty things ON OUR site that could harm computers. I gasped!

We are a small-ish business with good intentions. Over almost 20 years we have worked hard to develop lots of goodwill in the community. Much of our new business comes from searches via Google and other search engines. This nasty hacked in code was not good for business. I was aghast!

After a late night of interventions, finding the hijacked-in code and resubmitting to Google we waited and, ta-daa, our site is live and safe to surf.

We apologize profusely for the nasty, scary messages. Our research discovered these tidbits from Google reports:

• “Over the past 90 days, harrynowell.com did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites.

• “How did this happen?
In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message.

Thanks for your patience!

We now resume normal programming.
