PSU is a reported attack site

Reported Attack Site!

This web site at www.psu.com has been reported as an attack site and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

Attack sites try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.

Some attack sites intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.

Update:

Response from PSU:

"Basically a little over a month ago, PSU.com was hacked through our forums, PS3forums.com, and the hackers caused server slow downs, crashes, and even uploaded malicious software to the site. Some people may remember this, some not.

Anyways, we fixed the site, got our servers upgraded and redid alot of our back end coding to help the site run faster, especially for E3.

We've been doing just fine lately, and covered E3. However, Google must have done a scan during the time we were hacked, and that is the reason for this "Reported As" page."

I'm a part of the PS3Forums. Its a shame they teamed up with PSU.com. I never liked the website much at all. I wont be visiting it anymore (although i dont really visit it much now heh) After the GT5:Prolouge lies about damage i disregarded this site.

I recommened Playfire.com

I went there last night and it came up in the bottom right of my screen that my computer was being attacked. I ask for details and it said it was high risk. To bad I liked to go there for PS3 themes.

What lie about GT Prologue Damage? Didn't Polyphony confirm that

thor3773d ago

Yeah but some previewer said there was already damage in prologue, and they obviously hadn't played the game. I think it was this site.

JordanL3773d ago

It is indeed sad. I used to enjoy going there often, and I worked with the site owners and Justin.

They didn't do this intentionally, of that I'm sure.

or a one time thing like a hack .. the guys at PSU are really nice and helpful, i could not see this as part of their model.

but i am sure whoever posted this doesn't give a dang and would just want people to stop going there and visit some skank blog instead .. that the problem with this kind of "journalism" no one contacted PSU to ask WTF was going on before posting this.

avacadosnorkel3773d ago

They are the ones behind it

sajj3163773d ago

wonder what NoUseMerc thinks ...

Jpinter3773d ago

I'm pretty upset. PSU is where I work, and this really hurts us in terms of trust from our readers. From reading comments, a lot of people think the PSU staff is behind it....which we aren't of course.

TripleTags3772d ago

its probably the trolls that got banned from the forums mud slinging.

MazzingerZ3773d ago

I've always had problems with the site, takes forever to load sometimes or my F-secure just blocks it
