|Visitors to our site Friday may have seen a malware warning. We want to assure our readers that we are safe and cleared by Google. For more information, read on. We were hacked. A security vulnerability allowed for the possibility that malicious code could be transmitted from another site through us. For this reason, Truthdig was placed on a list of dangerous sites maintained by Google and used by other browser companies. Our technology team worked quickly to close the vulnerabilities and clear the site of potential dangers. However, it takes time for browser companies to re-crawl, re-test and clear sites such as ours that have been attacked. For that reason, it appeared for most of the day that Truthdig was dangerous, although the danger was quickly dealt with.|
