Is it only me or anyone else get this site blocked by their antivirus in the last few days?
Didn't happen to me.
What browser and what antivirus software do you use?
I am moving the thread to feedback.
No, I've been on a lot last couple of days and have seen nothing amiss.
I use both IE and FireFox and have Norton System 360
I am using Firefox and Norton Internet Security.Two times It happened I was trying to enter a thread and got redirected to some unknown site that got automatically blocked as a malicious site. And the last time the actual PF thread got blocked.
I am doing a full system scan to see if I don't have something nasty on my end.
Oh, it's either viglink or vigilink, I get redirected to both from here. viglink is an advertising thing and is tied to the forum, and vigilink is tracking, I checked the vigilink and mine seemed to be coming from my cable company according to HP.
Strange. I use firefox to get to physicsforums from 3 different computers with 3 different operating systms, never had such a problem. I also use Norton on one of these computers. I do see that scripts run from viglink (using a tool that tracks such things), but it never caused this symptom for me.
Norton thinks TV Guide cookies are malicious and is the only "threat" it finds monthly.
That I do see, and ignore, on the computer using Norton.
Lucky! I'd swear that my IT department has a quota. Each month I get a list more absurd than the previous month's about all of the dangerous things I've done. My favorite entry is:
"Refreshed browser twice within 5 seconds."
If your IT deparment is the same as most, they probably can't figure out how you are getting fast enough response to display a page in less than 5 MINUTES.
And if they DO figure it out, they will then start working on a way to stop it...
