PostSubject: Something weird just happened   Sun Feb 12, 2017 10:41 am

When I went to log into this site today, my internet provider popped up with this message that this site has been marked as a "suspicious website" and recommended I did not go any further. Surprised  I wish I would of caught a screenshot of it but I was just so stunned to having that screen pop up. Of course I choose to allow this site. I did however get this screenshot.

In the browser it has a little i grayed out


After I clicked on it this is the information it gave me.


As you can see I have come to this site prior to today, 27 times to be exact.

I just thought this was odd.

EDIT: When I went back to my main tab, I did notice that because I have this site pinned, I did catch the warning. It's a little blurry, but
you get the gist of what it is saying

Quite interesting indeed. Who is your internet provider and which antivirus program do you use?
You can send this in a PM if you do not want it public.

I have Charter Spectrum as both my cable, internet and home phone provider and because of the package I have, they offered me free security software that's through them + I also use Malwarebyte anti-malware. I can use both software at the same time.

Just to be safe that some foreign entity high jacked Firefox, I have reset passwords, cleared browser history, cookies and caches.

Guessing the Spectrum security software is what tried to block the site. Changing your passwords is an excellent plan. Not many think to change them often enough. I also use the Firefox browser and regularly clear caches and cookies. I use AdBlocker Plus on Firefox but it is disables for this and certain other sites.  Webroot likes to block Origin when I install new Sims packs. I just tell it to allow and it is okay.
I also use Malwarebytes as an added precaution and run scans about every week. 
My service package of cable, internet and {rarely used} home phone line are thru Time Warner/Spectrum. So far no issues with that.
Hopefully you can add this site to the safe list and have no further issues.

Yes, this site is on the safe list and even though we rarely use our home phone, in order to get the best bundle package we had to include it. Mostly we use it for if we are expecting business type entities to call and any family members ( we do have family/friends who live out in the middle of nowhere and cell phone reception is virtually non-existent) who don't have cell phones only landline phones.
