Google Safe Browsing in OmniWeb Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
One of my clients had his website hacked -- an unsavory hidden <iframe> was added to the index.html page in every directory. It wasn't totally hidden because the hacker foolishly specified a 25 pixel height, which added a blank space at the top of each hacked page.

When I noticed the page layout problem, I opened the site in Firefox to see if it had the same layout problem. I was greeted with a scary red page:
Reported Attack Site!

This web site at has been reported as an attack site and has been blocked based on your security preferences.
This alert comes from the Google Safe Browsing service integrated into Firefox.

(I quickly changed the client's FTP password and cleaned the site. Google eventually got around to rescanning the site and removing it from the attack list.)

My searching shows that Google Safe Browsing is available in Firefox and may have been available some Safari releases. I found no mention of OmniWeb.

Google Safe Browsing would be an excellent enhancement to OmniWeb's current Security Preferences.

This would be a good addition so long as it is optional as in Safari.
