Re: Sailnet Chat Silenced -- Day 2

a little follow up - The Envolve Chat library is not infected or the cause of any issues here at Sailnet -

HOWEVER - their javascript was using use base64_decode which is a known method of exploiting a website and Norton/Symantec has a serious problem do many other malware detection programs.

I run Norton/Symantec on my computer and when I went to I got a warning that their site contain Malware and I was warned not to access that site.

It appears as though Envolve has finally taken these complaints seriously and as of this morning they appear to have re-written their .js code and the warning no longer exists.

Therefore I will be turning chat back on today after I reinstall their modules which I deleted for safety purposes.
