Annoying web site bug

Recommended Posts

My 64bit system is equipped with debugging tools that show all errors in scripts.

I thought you might like to know there are multiple errors _gat is undefined.

One example may be coming from this code segment:

</script>

<script type="text/javascript">

var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-3347303-1");

pageTracker._initData();

pageTracker._trackPageview();

</script>

If you want more info let me know but I would think a quick search through the code for your main forum pages and the home page should put you on track.

Are you refering to the forums, or the Malwarebytes homepage? It looks like underscores were put in front of the some variable and function names.

It seems to be a widespread problem. On the homepage an example snippet may be:

</script>

<script type="text/javascript">

var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-3347303-1");

pageTracker._initData();

pageTracker._trackPageview();

</script>

Most pages I open display this problem

PS

This bug is of course mainly apparent in Internet Explorer -- Chrome, Netscape do not exhibit similar difficulties -- MS$ & MS$ VS make it apparent.

David, the problem looks like it relates to Google Analytics. Not sure why?

Suggest you report it to google analytics support. You could start in the forum

http://www.googlecommunity.com/forum/other...ytics-bugs.html

You should get some pointers there.

I suggest you search relevant code and then open your site remotely on a machine equipped with debugging tools and paste the code and and the notifications into the forum. You should also check that the line numbers given in the notification coincide with the source (sometimes the notification gives the wrong line numbers!!

It is worth watching these things -- hackers often start by looking at web site coding errors when they want to hack your site and my guess is that you malwarebytes could be an attractive target to some of those b******s - so I would recomend you give errors like this close attention.

If it's an error in Google stats code, then they could not use it to hack Malwarebytes' site. None of the code interfaces with the site, it keeps track of who is going and comming so that Marcin knows a little bit of generic info about who is visiting the site (things like browser and operating system version, as well as where they came from).

Thats good -- I did not have time to look at it closely to see what is going on.. just flagging up that there is a bug and if I can see so can others -- bad guys look for more when they find one!!

Anyway I have done my bit <chuckles>
