Today, we fight back Depending on where you are, you will see today on Lucire and related sites one of two campaign ads for the Day We Fight Back, a protest against government surveillance. We believe in your privacy, and we do not believe governments or corporations should have easy access to your private information. We urge you to sign the petition, or call your or email your representative.


The latest Google mishap We had wondered why our Feedburner RSS-feed stats at Lucire had gone way down. Here’s why: Google is serving completely the wrong site. We’ve had to change the links on our site today so that we no longer rely on Feedburner.

Why was Lucire blacklisted by Google for six days?

Here’s a quick Q&A about the Google blacklisting this month.

Was Lucire hacked?
No. Our ad server was hacked, but our web team deleted all instances of the hack within hours on April 6. Everything was totally sewn up. In fact, Google itself gave our ad server domain the all-clear on April 6. For some reason, it wouldn’t give it to any other site that was linked to it.

Was I ever in danger of getting malware?
Only for those few hours on April 6, but if you have up-to-date antivirus, you should have been fine.

What code was put in?
We know the code directed people to another website where there was some kind of malicious software, but Google’s name is actually all over that code, too. You can judge for yourself in the third entry at this link.

Why did Google blacklist you for so long then?
This is the mystery. One expert tells us that Google reviews sites in five hours. Maybe it’s actually five days.
   The most innocent explanation is that Google’s malware bot doesn’t pick up the latest pages, but keeps reading old code. We brought this up in the Google forums, and that’s what they kept seeing internally. We’ve had our experts go through the site, we’ve had Sucuri go through the site, and we’ve had StopBadware.org go through the site. Everyone has cleared us. No one has ever been able to see the malware code since our techs cleared it. Even the Google forum level 12 volunteer could not understand why Google kept boycotting us from its search results, and why Google told everyone that we were dirty.
   The less innocent explanation is that Google’s bot is corrupt. Google itself created code to spy on Apple Iphone users last year, which we expect its own bot did not pick up. So it seems that if Google makes malware, it’s OK.
