An Important notice to my friends

Yesterday someone from FB told me they had gotten a malware report when they visited my site. As you can imagine I was pretty upset. I have checked it thoroughly on both of my computers, which have different anti-virus software, have also checked on a third. I asked on Blogger and also had a friend  I used to work with check as he keeps high security on his laptop since it has sensitive information to his job on it. So far we have not been able to detect any problems at all. If you should notice something please let me know right away but for now it appears to be clean.

Nevertheless I felt it would be irresponsible not to tell people. Two people have suggested it may have been her anti-virus software but I have no way to establish that and I felt everyone has the right to know.

In stitchy news today begins Basilisk's 3 days of rotation and I have so far not been able to get more than 10 or 15 stitches on it before being interrupted, but hopefully later today.

Oh, and I almost forgot. I accidentally deleted some recent comments when I was checking out my blog to make sure it was clean and I am sorry for that. I was advised to raise security on my comments so the nasty Captcha thing is back. I really don't like these but it will spare me the spam and I will get rid of it when I learn more about being safe.

Until next time, Happy Stitching everyone.

I just got an email from a friend telling me the same thing about a post I put up yesterday! I found you through Goggle when I was looking for others with the same problem. When I came here I didn't have any problems though.

I like that you put this post up. I was planning to do the same thing to let people know. I've never heard of such a thing though. Have you had any more issues?

Debbie, no I haven't. So far everything seems to be working just fine.

I am not having any problems girl and so don't feel so worried. When I first got Chrome my security settings were so high I couldn't go to any site without getting that warning. It still warns me about facebook every time i go there.

Thanks Rhonda. Lynn e-mailed me as well and didn't have any problems. So I'm feeling less anxious about it. Still, I had to post it on the blog. I'd have felt terrible if someone had problems because of it.
