Topic starter

Every time I open this forum, I get a notification from my symantic security that it has blocked an attack from -- a malvertisemtnt website redirect.

Has anyone else received this warming? -- and what to do about it?

I have Symantec, specifically Norton 360... Every now and then I do get the notice, and also when I open the page for the St. Croix Source...

Sometimes the AV program will "see" the advertisements on said pages as an attack... I just dismiss it as the AV doing its job, so I rather have anything blocked instead of my laptop turned to a paperweight...

I started getting that alert a few days ago when I go to the St Croix Source page. But haven't had it happen here.

I've also gotten the alert a number of times. Norton 360 identifies " (,80)" as the "attacking computer". Most likely it's a banner ad that's doing something weird and the security software blocks it out of an abundance of caution - hopefully nothing malicious (false flag).

My IDS also is freaking out, it blocks the site for 600 seconds, then allows traffic.
