    Keep getting CF reported as an attack site in Firefox, IE reports it too. Anyone else getting it?

    ahh I had the same issue as zainek with ESET saying its quarantining a dangerous site.

    I will just join in on that or maybe amod can merge this into that one.

    Never got that plugin message but jave is trying to open something on media player classic, whatever it was that zainek said in the other thread thats what I am getting.

    Apparently according safe browsing diagnostic certforums.co.uk has acted as an intemediary for the infection of 1 site including certforums.com

    Third parties can add malicious cide to legitemate sites which would cause us to show the warning message.

    I'm still getting CF blocked by FF at home. At work its fine, i can access here using FF. I have tried adding CF to the trusted sites for FF but still keeps giving me the red warning page.

    Try adding http://adserver.certforums.co.uk/ and see if that helps although not sure you want to do that :D

    The forum is Ok now.

    Try clearing your internet cache and history and see if that works.

    Just run ccleaner and that will sort more than your cache out.
