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 on MyTwoCensus tech problems

Despite the warnings you may have received when trying to visit this site, MyTwoCensus.com was never under attack. Rather, there have been some WordPress plugins that we were using that were vulnerable to attack. We have removed all of the software in question and we have contacted Google to clear our good name. It appears that Google has already given us the green light, but please feel free to post here if you are experiencing any problems.

    Thank you. It was really annoying.

    What WordPress plugin were you using that would cause this over and over again? Didn’t you tell us in August this was fixed as well?

    I’m sure that the warnings were not about an attack on your site. The warnings were for readers about your site attacking them.

    Speaking of warnings- any idea why a visit to mytwocensus brought a site certificate warning that pointed to Census Bureau nameservers? Routing was shown as going to ns1e.census.gov., care of the Telecommunications Office. What is supposed to differentiate us from all the KGB-esque regimes is that WE, that is US-

    don’t do that.
