Cybotron, do you have another antivirus/antimalware program? Can you see if others are producing the same warning?

No Lily, I only have the Norton 360. I don't know if others flash warning or not.

Moved posts about Norton to this thread since it was getting off-topic in the other thread.

Honestly, it could very well only be Norton. Norton may be sending up red flag because it is Norton, or because older version of vBulletin like Astro Forever said.

Is anyone else who doesn't have norton, not getting this warning? Cause if something like this happens, I get warnings from other things, but there is nothing on my end. So, I dunno. :unsure:

I don't get these warnings on my computer (Linux) or my phone (Android). I also don't have Norton. (I think McAfee is probably better, and I'd get that if I ran Windows).

I use Windows 10 and McAfee, and I haven't seen any warnings.

Yeah honestly, it looks like it might just be Norton. No warnings for anyone Norton-less points to that, I guess. I suppose maybe run spybot if you're very concerned, see if something's up. Not many options if it does happen to be an in-browser virus, or something.

As of last night, the Norton issue has been resolved:

The site should run normally now.

The site has started to log me out after a period of time with no activity. This is a new behavior. Is this related to the fix for Norton?

That's been around for years. After 20 minutes, if you don't do anything with your account when you're logged in, your account will automatically log out.
