My Two Census

Formerly the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 US Census, and currently an opinion blog that covers all things political, media, foreign policy, globalization, and culture…but sometimes returning to its census/demographics roots.

Update: Our tech problems are fixed

Google and other web browsers may take a day or two to update their systems. A big thanks to Evan Goldin for working tirelessly to fix these problems.

Best,

SRM

    Thanks! I tried twice last night to visit your website — my anti-virus software warned me to exit due to “malicious attack”.

    SRM – please provide the name of the trojan so we can do some extra verification on our end.

    ^^^^^^^^^^ anon, i’ll do the verification for you: it was ‘her pleasure’

    I’m absolutely certain that this trojan wasn’t a Breitbart/O’Keefe-style attempt to hack into Census email systems. Especially not since Morse has lauded Breitbart and O’Keefe, and has tried FOIA requests for Census employees cussing in their emails (but can’t foot the bill for the queries).

    Absolutely certain.

    I guess SRM doesn’t want us to understand the technical problem or the possible impact to his readers. How can we know that the problem has been fixed? Where’s the transparency?

    The problem is now fixed. It was from a plugin that we used specifically for our “contact” form to enable users to e-mail us anonymously. We have removed that feature from the site and the warning is now gone too. SRM
