    Default Firefox getting Phishing warning.

    Not sure what's going on. I keep getting Web Forgery and Phishing warnings.

    Can't even get to this site with my android tablet using firefox.

    Well it is Google not the browser. Anyways at least with Firefox after you click ignore there is an option to report it as a false positive. Whenever you run into the issue you should do that. It'll help get rid of the warning.

    Avast has picked it up.

    Able has talked before about why this happened originally - if I remember right, some porn site hijacked the DNS once - and it keeps cropping up whenever the site block libraries get reloaded out there.

    The site has become near unusable at the moment. Avast is constantly asking do I trust this website and when you click 'yes' it refreshes you to the main page every time, which is really annoying.

    Chrome also has a warning up every time I go on.

    Change is neither good or bad, it simply is.

    Got it from chrome. I've been browsing on tapatalk with no problem. It would be nice to get verification this is in fact the old problem popping up and there's nothing amiss. Personally my passwords are unique but it would be nice for all of our users I think.

    Comes up on both Chrome and Safari. It makes the website pretty much unusable.

    I've gotten it as well for Firefox.
    First time in a long time, I've been happy with the team that was constructed, and now they struggle. I blame the coach.

    you can start by typing in the address, then making a bookmark, why 75% of ppl uses google to return to sites is way beyond me
    It's a matter of DNS poisoning and little i can or want to do at the moment since i am inthe process of moving the site to another server and newer software.

    I use chrome, ie ad opera and do NOT have the problem, also of course i don't use all those silly make me feel warm and fuzzy site protectors, which do sod all expect preventing you from using your own brain, if you don't recognise a phising email from a mile away, or a hijack one, than you should rethink your web usage.
    For starters stick the simplest rule of all: don't click on ANY link in an email

    /rant

    site will be down a few times this week.

    Able, I have a direct bookmark in Firefox and I get the same things. Maybe it is due to having protections turned on, but because I have people who are not as tech-savvy as I am using this computer from time to time I can't take any chances (my father has already been scammed out of tens of thousands of dollars and he was an electrical engineer and one of the smartest men I ever knew, but now he gets confused easily and they prey on that).

    Not everybody can spend their time learning how to make their own tech safe any more than they should all be working on their own cars just to make sure no one does their brakes wrong.

    Newer versions of Firefox turn the anti-phishing protections on by default. Tools > Options > Security and uncheck "Block reported web forgeries"

    I'm not using Google. I have a direct bookmark to the forum... And also just tried typing in www.pacersdigest.com to make sure nothing was wonky with the bookmark and the same red screen phishing site warning.
    Chrome on Win 10.

    I thought he was talking about going to Google and typing in Pacers (or whatever) and then clicking the Pacers digest link from there... not which browser you're using. In fact, he said he was using Chrome himself i

    FYI for Chrome users...
    If you click the "Details" link on the big, red warning page it will open up more text that will have a "continue to the unsafe site" option. If you click, you'll arrive at PD like always and can go to the sub forums, read PM's, post, etc. and not see that screen again until you "X" out (close) PD in your browser. Then the next time you return you'll have to do the "Details"..."Continue to the unsafe site" clicks again.

    At "Details", when clicked, there is also an option to report that the warning is in error. Which I assume if enough people do then maybe it'll be fixed by Google (or whatever site maintains the bad site references that the browsers are looking to).
