    Same boat as you flash. I haven't noticed this issue either (or at least I haven't been getting those warnings). I wonder if it has something to do with the anti-virus definition the vendor is using to classify as malicious?

    Post Re: Site security issue

    i have ublock origin but don't really know how to use it (except for turning it off and on again) so i instead primarily use privacy badger.

    as for the redirect(s)s n' stuff, i don't have any problem(s) when it's enabled.

    • It'll redirect me off-site
    • It'll redirect people I've sent links to
    • My antivirus will tell me the site is malicious
    • I get antivirus notifications that it'll block pings from a particular IP when on this site


    I haven't noticed anything weird on Wizard101 Central, but it might be something you should look into.

    Thanks!

    I did so this morning, and the issue has not been repeated for me.

    Thanks, Jester!

    Re: Site security issue

    Hey all! I've been experiencing this quite frequently, especially on the wiki (since I do a lot of maintenance on there). When I click on a link, it will redirect me to a page that shows me a "Download Now!" button. I've had my Avast Antivirus ping a few times, telling me that the website is malicious. Also, at school when I try to get on the wiki or Pirate101.com, it says that the connection is not secured, and it literally won't let me get past that point. Are you positive that this website is safe? I use it all the time, and I won't be too pleased to have some type of Trojan on my computer. The next time I see something that this, I'll post a picture of it. Hope it gets fixed!

    I'm sure it safe and I wouldn't be pleased either....who would? Please do send a picture via PM to me if you see anything odd - I'd be interested in seeing what is loading on the page if/when you see the behavior.

    The site is protected and I just scanned everything to be sure it's clear.

    Thanks for checking, but I really think there’s something wrong. Today, I got more than a dozen redirects, and a few minutes ago, I was brought to a porn website while on my phone. Either there’s something wrong just my electronics, or someone’s hacked into the code. I really don’t want another person redirected to that terrible website.

    It isn't just you. I am having 2 weird issues I've never experienced with the site while browsing it recently:

    1) it seems I am not logged in automatically but I have to go to the page, then refresh it to actually get signed in.

    2) I've been getting way more redirects like when I click on the header picture (probably behind it is a hidden google ad that getting clicked alongside it) and when I try to check new posts.

    I highly recommend they look into just changing to https as the site is still giving a not secure even as I type this.

    Funny part is I even went to click submit reply and another pop up just happened.

    Have either of you completely cleared your browser's cache, as suggested by @Jester earlier in this thread? When I was experiencing issues, doing so eliminated these redirects for me.

    I was told at work just yesterday, we should all be clearing our browsing history and cookies on a regular basis - at least weekly - due to all of the various stuff that gets loaded to our computers while we browse. Tell that junk to walk the plank!

    I'm not seeing anything at all - certainly not porn. I got no reports or screenshots like I asked for from anyone via PM either. It's a bit difficult to chase something with no idea what you're seeing. Please also get yourself a copy of free Malwarebytes for your PC and phone and run some scans to make sure it's not your stuff causing your issues.

    There are nightly malware scans of this site's code. Could it be a specific ad you are seeing that could be misbehaving?
