    It could be one of those fake Google Critical Error things. But then, it didn't give you a phone number to call, which means it's most likely not a hacker. Hasn't happened to me (I use Chrome too).

    That is something I have never seen.

    Re: Security Breach

    Sadly the site is still vulnerable. Someone who is tech savvy could easily attack the site and steal information according to google. Jester had tried to fix it before but seems it still has some issues. An easy fix is moving the site to https since this website is one of the few on the internet which hasn't yet (and if you're using another one that isnt, chances are it's shady and you should definitely be careful). Only thing I can say is you should make sure your information you have here is entirely different than any other of your information for anything else.

    This is for the main site for pirate101, not central. I have the same message though.

    If that's the case then it may be on your end because I checked the main p101 website and it was fine on my side.

    Try re-installing chrome/update it. Download Malwarebytes immediately and scan your computer for any harmful stuff you may have been exposed too. It's free, just google it.
