Many of us are members at B&B and have an interest. This post is not criticizing a policy nor is it bad mouthing B&B. It will be allowed but please tread gently and stay within bounds. Hopefully they get it sorted out quickly.

thank phil.

if that's the case...

it's known, it's being looked at and happens now and then.

nothing to worry about, B&B is still safe and the warning is originating from GOOGLE. if you access direct and thru a different browser you will not get an error message, at least i'm not getting one when i do that.

No, but I had a couple of reputable vendor sites I've used before give me a false positive after an antivirus software update. If I know the site I don't worry about it and access it anyway. These AV companies create defenses for virus patterns, not the viruses themselves, and accidently the AV software thinks a legit site is infected because of that. I want to withhold the names of the vendors because when I overrode my virus protection and went to their sites anyway there were no problems.

Another shave forum (SRP) works fine from Google on my laptop but gives me an Error 404 every time I have tried to access it on my BlackBerry the past few days. I think the reason is either the operating system or antivirus. I have no doubt the forum itself is clean. I know the Reviews section is down over there, but it's a known issue and not a virus. B&B, SRP, and TSD have new platforms (at least they look different) and there have been a few problems along with the added benefits.

Do what I do and get a flue shot every year. Lightbulb

(If another member gets this message, someone at the controls might be sending the member a message under the guise of a virus. Run a virus scan and if no infections are reported just ignore it.)

Only a heads up and a check for me and my system. Having just gone through this myself a few weeks ago I sympathize with them.

Well on my tablet the site just went down for maintenance, so the reasonable guess would be that they are working on it.

It's not that long to get off the list, once the site has been cleaned. And sites can get accidentally put on these lists - I haven't checked if IE is blocking the site yet.

Regardless it's best to stay off until the issue has been dealt with.

I sent the web master a email. He said the offending code had already been removed and normal browsing using firefox and chrome should return to normal soon.
