Default security certificate pop up.

Just had a new pop up about revocation information of this sites security certificate. When I proceeded anyway I got another malicious website pop up. This is new.

There hasn't been a repeat of the security certificate pop up but the malicious website one comes up quite frequently.

Big red full page with yellow letters warning of a malicious website with options to go to Norton to do a safety check or a go ahead and go for it without checking. When the Norton option is selected it comes up with a basic "no problem found".

Actually it must say "one problem intalled"
Never click on those links, also do not click on cancel, exit or what ever button there is, just try to close the window by the X in the top corner and with some sites that will not work open task manager and kill the IE (or chrome) process tree

Thank you for the input. However, it doesn't alter the fact that this never happened until the latest forum update which leads me to believe that all the members are being overtly exposed to something that we were not before the update.

Thanks, I'll see what we can do with this report and hopefully block that advertiser.
