Blocked in Iron, but not in Opera.

Iron is Chrome with some privacy.

Datum: 21.09.2010
Version: 6.0.475.1

> Download < (Installer for XP,Vista)

Works great on Windows 7. :)
It's also blocked in Opera.

Not for me. :)

GAOTD blocked in Opera 10.63, SeaMonkey 2.0.9, IE8 here. So is this a FP or for real.

False positive. giveawayoftheday.com does NOT distribute/host malware of ANY sort! Looking forward to the unblocking of this blatant false positive in the next defs update

Avast is blocking the linkinform script at giveawayoftheday site NOT the site. It is blocking this specific site: 208.94.233.132 which is: http://statistic.link.informer.com/WebGate/SaveStatistic.aspx?VisitPage=http%3A//www.giveawayoftheday.com/startup-defender-2-2/%3Factivate&Referrer=&AccountId=b53d4fea-6544-4027-a8f5-5bf4a58c7b93&Time=1287742142425. Try to go there and watch Avast go crazy. I don't use Avast web shield. So, I got a slightly different block than many of you here got or at dslreports.com where it is also being discussed. When I tried to go to GAOTD site, Avast Network Shield blocked the linkinform java script at GAOTD and said it was trying to infect my network.

I was able to download the GAOTD which is Staff Logger 4.6. Avast did not interfere. After I downloaded it, I scanned the file with Avast and it is clean.

This is a false positive having to do with linkinform not GAOTD.

Yep. Sorry, that evidently is a partial link only. I copied it from ThreatExpert analysis. Try just typing in the IP address: 208.94.233.132.

Hey Everyone:  To download the program's zip folder, you do not need to be on the web-page, you just need to know the download link or links.  Copy and paste any one of the links below in the address bar of your browser and press return to download the package (or just click on one of the links if they're clickable):

Link from "Download StaffLogger 4.6 now:"
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/download/?id=15964

Mirror link #1 (not shown anymore but still works):
http://giveawayoftheday.com/download/?id=15964&mirror=1

Direct download link for the above 2 links:
http://files.giveawayoftheday.com/StaffLogger.zip

I hope this has helped.  If anyone missed the giveaway and want help, then please message me or email me at:
db.gotdhelp@lr78.com

Oh yes, by the way, you should have an extra hour after the giveaway ends (that is, after the giveaway web-page changes to the next day's giveaway) to download and activate the program.
