Sedo.com and Sedo.co.uk Hit with Malware Warnings

by Adam Strong in Categories: Up to the Minute

Users of Sedo.com and Sedo.co.uk were greeted today with a Google malware warning when accessing the popular domain name parking and aftermarket site.  The warning details are below.

DNN was able to see the warnings in some Chrome and Safari but not Firefox, and upon reloading later this morning the warning had disappeared on Safari. Other users we have spoken to are reporting similar experiences with the warnings still tehre.  See graphic below for more details of the malware.

[Update] A Sedo spokesperson has provided DNN witht he following comment:

Sedo has been made aware that visitors attempting to access the Sedo.com or Sedo.co.uk websites using either the Firefox or Chrome web browsers have been receiving security alerts preventing entry. While the Sedo website is still accessible without warning on both Internet Explorer and Safari, we immediately began investigating the root cause of these warnings to ensure there was in fact no risk to our users or visitors to the site. At this time we can report that no threats have been detected and our technical teams are currently working with Google and others to ensure these false warnings are immediately removed.
