Title: Forum Blocked? URL;mal
Post by: CaExplorer on February 13, 2018, 08:06:41 AM
Hey guys,

When attempt to login to the forum from my computer, my virus protection (Avast) blocks the NorCal Underwater Hunters forum saying it's infected with: URL;Mal.

I've been using my phone for the last few years to login, but would like to use my computer as well.

Anyone else experience this?

I can unblock the site easily, but am weary of malware.

Cheers,
Chris

There are false positives with anti viruses since it does block programs and links depending on settings.  Some work places intentionally block forums and certain websites so users don’t accidentally open dangerous pages and cause infections.

There is a reason they block your porn.  To bad they don’t make you check in your phone when you get to work.
