  • Does this site have a virus?

    I was just reading this site as always and my browser just warned me that this site might be phishing me...anyone else have any warnings?

    First time I have ever seen that warning here.

    Can one of the mods weigh in on this?

    IN the mean time I will be checking my system for problems.

    Thanks

      More like a gathering place for those infected with the HSM virus.

      Some browsers - notably IE - are rather sensitive and may false trigger sometimes. That's not to say it can't happen, but the chance is small - and very small if the site software is maintained on a regular basis and you keep your Windows OS and programs updated.

        The most likely reason you got that warning; something in one of the ads that pop up. The advertising sources are prone to getting infected since they are just PCs like everyone else.

        I block most ads, so it's not a problem for me.

          The only virus I've noticed lately is my own...."cough, cough".

            FWIW...I got another phishing warning (second one).

            Also I note that the site is getting VERY SLOW at a point where my computer shows HSM loading an advertisement.

            Normal speeds at other spots in the loading process.

            I think the slowness I am seeing is because of an add.

            The phishing warning...I don't know...like I said I have never seen that until the two last times I have mentioned it.
