Blog Virus!!!

(Please scroll down for our latest tips, recipes and contest.)


Apparently Blogger is aware of this virus because I just discovered there is a Blogger Forum, you can read more about the virus HERE.

Yesterday when I googled I found out most of my info from another forum called IronFeather, in Blogger's forum they link this website. I do want to warn you because there is inappropriate language used there.


I am going to try to explain this the best way I know how, please bear with me.

There's a nice little blog virus lurking in Bloggy Land, if you notice your site or someone else's taking a year and a day to load there maybe a script in your template, if so DELETE IT (ONLY what I highlighted in RED)!! It looks something like this:
<*head*>< *script* src*=*' http:*//d5d1*.com/b'/*>

your code, then

<*body*><*script* src='*http://d5d1*.com/b'/*> without the (*)

Don't delete the head or body, JUST the scripts!!!

To find it press Ctrl + F, type d5d1 and it should highlight.

Be sure to PREVIEW your template before saving!!!!

Also, if you go to someone's blog that does have it, I hate to say this, but do not comment. Try to find a way to let them know, because you could get this virus, even if you deleted it from your blog already, supposedly you can get it again.

If you need more help, I'm not very html/css savvy, but I'll do my best.

That must have been what was wrong with mine yesterday. It is fine now.

I had something funky going on with my blog last night and today (not sure if it's this same thing... I use Wordpress, and it seems like a lot of other users were having the same trouble as me). In any case, how frustrating!! Ugh!

I have been having endless trouble with my blog. I'll be lucky if I can even get into my template to look. Thanks for the heads up!
