    What's happening with bang-olufsen.com?

    Visiting the site reports an attack page and gives malware warnings...

    EDIT: I sent a message also to B&O's Customer Service about the matter.

    Same result here with Chrome browser on a Windows based PC.

    Looks like the Bang-Olufsen.com website has been hacked and infected with malware.

    It has indeed.  Hackers have trampled their way in and caused all sorts of chaos.  Even ROS is down, so dealers are pretty screwed as well.

    Bang & Olufsen and Software.  Not very lucky with it..

    The site is working fine again. I don't think it has been hacked. (What is there to hack anyway?)

    When you get this message, it is because you browser check each site you visit against a list of website that are potentially dangerous, that is (I think) maintained by google.

    Sometime sites are added to this list by mistake.

    No mistake - google is right.  Visiting the site gives you the Beovirus, which causes you to be hopelessly addicted.  Smile

    As I reported in a different thread about David Lewis, I got a diversion to a Russian domain (.ru) and the David Lewis page text was missing.

    No warnings via my browser however.

    Re: What's happening with bang-olufsen.com?

    It was hacked as of yesterday.

    I too sent a message to B&O, and my reply stated it was being looked into.

    vikinger:

    That only happens after Google run their daily check. Often sites are hacked for many hours before you'll ever see a warning. Google check once every 24 hours at the soonest.
