Even with software protection, new viruses pop up daily by the hundreds..one could have gotten by. When was the last time McAfee was updated on your computer? You might want to update it.

Occasionally when I sign into this site, a small box appears in the lower right hand corner with something like "This site is now owned by ------(can't remember) and a link to click on, which I never did.

That would be Internet Brands...we are under their umbrella. There is really no reason to log out when you leave the site.

IMPORTANT...

A lot of sites have been infected in the last week due to a vulnerability that is well documented now. Here is the link:

https://krebsonsecurity.com/2012/07/...-sites-hacked/

Last week we had a portion of time when you would NOT want to come into this forum if you were not logged in.

I am glad McAffee is warning people if it has come back.

As long as you stay logged in it is fine.

I use McAfee (registered user) and I do not get a warning sign.

If you do see you computer redirecting pages after a Google search, though, you may have a problem.

Thank you Paul for your prompt answer. I shall ignore the McAfee warn. My McAfee is NOT up to date since I am using a different virus blocker. So The problem could well be on my end. I did notice that there was NO Warning when I Logged in today. Thanks again for your prompt answer and explanation.

My laptop and Ad Aware won't let me enter this site either.
Hasn't for the last couple of days, something's going on.

I got the same warning from home but not from work.

Paul Motter July 13th, 2012 10:51 AM

Actually - according to experts who handled the infection that was on here the site is now definitely clear. I was told some computers may not have the latest downloads of McAfee (or whatever you use), and so they still get the message.

I have McAfee Site Advisor, and it does not give me a warning at all. But I also remained logged in which made a difference when the site was infected. If you are logged in your safe.

Gypsywych July 13th, 2012 12:18 PM

Thanks Paul, I'll update the laptop and see how it goes.

BigMac July 13th, 2012 12:56 PM

I'll do the same.. I hate Mcafee. It is the wort popup offender on my system.

Capndinghy July 14th, 2012 11:59 AM

I agree Mac! McAfee is a real pain in the rear. I cannot figure out how to get rid of it.
