Anyone else go to Scout boards today and get a warning about malware?
Where? Never heard of the place
Yes, I received the warning today for the first time.
What does the warning say?
Here's what appears on my screen:
Reported Attack Page
This web page at mbd. has been reported as an attack page and has been blocked based on your security preferences.
Attack pages try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.
Some attack pages intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.
I just got one today for the first time on firefox.
Yes, I just got one, first time for me too. Browser is Firefox.
Thanks for the info.
Me too. Got a malware warning basically saying proceed at your own risk.
Seems to be a Firefox thing. Switched to IE, and no problems. Everything as usual, not a peep out of my antivirus.
I'm running Safari, but I'll check IE
I got the warning on Google Chrome.
FireFox users Plus will block the ads....
Firefox warns Chrome warns IE not warning shouldn't make you comfortable imo
I used to visit Scout with IE and got all sorts of viruses. That's why I switched to Firefox with the extra Adware blocks
i was on their earlier today on my phone.... before i read this thread. Tried to check it out on the laptop... and that warning did come up.
It's not Scout. Every once in a while the ads throw a scare into McAfee, Norton, etc. It is a false positive that even this site has had on occasion.
