MyNissanLEAF forums on malware blacklist – site possibly hacked

MyNissanLEAF forum blocked.

MyNissanLEAF forum blocked.

Sometime during Tuesday afternoon a third party Nissan LEAF forum, mynissanleaf.com got placed on a blacklist for malicious websites. Both Firefox and Google Chrome are advising against visiting the website. Visiting the website using Internet Explorer is NOT blocked, however after arriving at the site Windows asks for permission to install software, lending credence to the possibility that the LEAF forum has been infected with malware. Whatever you do do not install software from this website until the owners have had time to deal with the issue.

Request to install software after visiting mynissanleaf,.com - Don't do it!!

Update 2013-01-16: The website was cleared of malware later the same day. Apparently it was a victim of the Java cross-site vulnerability. Update your Java to the latest version.

    Mr. White,
    This is Bradley George at WPLN. I’m working on a couple of stories about EVs and would like to interview you. I’m especially interested in your experience with PlugShare–have you had anyone use your home charger, have you used someone else’s etc. You can reach me at bgeorge at wpln dot org or 760.2035.
    Thanks
