Red Flag: Google Blocks Beckett Media's MOG Site

Google has listed Beckett Media's Massive Online Gamer website as suspicious. The warning from the worlds #1 search engine is that visiting Beckett's MOG site may harm your computer.

The reason for the Google flag could be a number of reasons.  Over the last 90 days, 5 of the 17 pages Google visited resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. A staggering percentage considering the depth of the MOG site. Google last visited MOG and updated their advisory today. In some cases, third parties can add code to a website that will alarm Google.

Beckett Media Lp is considered the leading distributor of many sports trading card publications, including Beckett Baseball Magazine.
