WARNING, MALWARE

Dear friends
I can't reach most of your blog..Every time I am trying, Google sends warning that the site has malware due to  scripts running from "en.petitchef.com". This may high-jack many of your data without your knowledge.The link itself may not be injecting  the malware, but it might have been infected by 3rd party without their knowledge.  I could inform some of my friends by e mail , who have removed the link en.petitchef.com and I can reach their site.... 
As a general precaution dont post anonymous. 
All comments must be posted after your approval.
Dont click a link coming via email or on blog.
Even if you receive a link from a known friend , don't click. 1st ask if he or she had sent the link. ( Many times it happens, that your friend's email address book has been hijacked and you receive mails from the hijacker as if it had come from your friend.)
When you send mass mail, try to put all address in BCC.
Well I  dont have much idea about these net business, and wont be surprised if I get into malware or spyware trap.
Happy cooking and happy blogging.


Here is a photo of lake Como, Northern Italy..wait for more

I knew something was quite suspicious about that site and didn't pay much attention to it. This malicious (sometimes vicious and deadly in other words) software doesn't make me get tense and I'm quite used to this stuff everyday.

Ushnish Ghosh said...

Dear Devsena
ha ha really Bugs were bugging me because I cant get latest recipes from my friends and claim them as my recipes, when I cook them.
I have put a help note at your blog. Please help so that I try the Madura meat recipe once more.
Have a nice week

Hi Ushnish ji, this petit chef is a menace now. At first, I gave my link to that site voluntarily (beginning blogger's pride...huh). But after seeing my recipes and photos in their page , affecting my real traffic, I tried to back off. Then only I learnt that we can't remove our site from them. Now I reduced my feed to prevent them publishing my recipe completely. truly a pain...the lesson is: 1. Never become a member of a large site like them. 2. Always reduce your feed (in blog settings).
