Network Solutions update and some numbers

I am getting a lot of questions via email or via the comments on what to do if a site hosted at Network Solutions is currently with malware or blacklisted.

Network Solutions issued an update explaining what to do: http://blog.networksolutions.com/2010/what-to-do-when-your-site-is-showing-a-malware-warning-page/

They partnered up with us and we are scanning any Network Solutions site for free for malware, and other security issues. Follow the instructions on their blog to know what do to.

Also, an interesting stats from Google Safe Brownsing:

Of the 114590 site(s) we tested on this network over the past 90 days, 2669 site(s), .., served content that resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent.

So a total of 2,669 sites got blacklisted from Network Solutions on the last few days. That’s 2% of all the sites they are hosting (note that not all the sites affected became blacklisted by Google).

  2. I'm two months into a one year shared hosting deal and I am not comfortable with it at this point.

    I want out.
