As of 0120 7 July the following link gives me a red Google warning that Raptr .com has been recently compromised with phishing attempts,  https://forums.mmorpg.com/discussion/comment/7352153/#Comment_7352153   .   In the Chrome browser there is a redirect to the last thread post.  The warning URL shows as   https://forums.mmorpg.com/discussion/469492/finally-got-a-house-in-ffxiv#latest.  It also shows the HTTPS portion as crossed out . 


Your thread page is blocked in Chrome because there is a Raptr. com cookie on it.  That is where I got the following Raptr cookie information from.

This warning shows when using the link directly or attempting to open it in another google tab.  

Raptr. com was shut down in 2017 by their own choice.   Attempting to reach the Raptr. com site through Chrome give the above warning.  The Raptr. com website can be reached through Internet Explorer.

ERROR SOURCE FOUND BELOW


EDIT  The source of the Raptr .com cookie is a Raptr Gamecard that is being repeatedly posted by member starstorm777.  It is also reposted by anyone who quotes this member.    I do not believe this is malicious.  

I'm not quoting any of the Original Source lines that display that gamecard information because of it's potential for creating errors.

    I've removed the raptr gamecard from the user's post.  It will take some time before Google recrawls the thread and clears the notice.

    Thank you for the great report leading to a quick fix!

    Here's another member account with a Raptr.com gamecard that prevents direct access to your web page through the Chrome browser:  https://forums.mmorpg.com/profile/TaishiFox

    Edit: forgot to add the MMORPG.com web page this happened on.

    I started getting this error to early this month or last month

    Did raptr get hacked or something? Or taken over by a bot/spam company? I remember using it years ago and it seemed legit. or was raptr always fake and it just wasn't as well known? If so, I'm glad I stopped using raptr if it allowed the program to put viruses/trojans onto peoples PC.

    There is no conspiracy by the former owners of the raptr .com ip address to infect your system with viruses or trojans.  The entity known as Raptr that used the raptr .com website and it's associated IP address ceased operations in 2017 as I stated in my first post.  You can go to that IP address and find that out for yourself. 

    Google says that IP address and that URL for Raptr .com is being used in phishing attempts.  Phishing is not viruses or trojans.  Phishing can be used to inject your PC with such.  Raptr, which no longer exists, is not doing the phishing.

    Just ran into the issue myself this morning. The thread is the one about the Bard's Tale IV this time.

    Same Google warning about Raptr.
