I am using BitDefender and noticed when I visit this great forum - BitDefender generates this notice:

Suspicious connection blocked now

Feature: Online Threat Prevention

chrome.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to vBToucan.com Development Portal. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one


FWIW - I notice a few other forums I belong to also generate the unmatched certificate.

FWIW - I just noticed that selecting NEW POSTS generates two alerts. Not all the pages cause alerts. Maybe I can figure out which pages cause the alerts - maybe it has to do with particular advertisements?

UPDATE: Notice whenever I go to a sub-forum (via the main Forum selection page) - I get two messages. Once inside a forum - no messages.

Will keep testing...

Unfortunately, it won't let me post: To be able to post links or images your post count must be greater. You currently have 4 posts.

So - I will enter exactly what it says...

This is a script conflict we are working on currently with a number of our vb3.8 sites conflicting with their respective ssl certs. There is nothing at risk on the site but this issue is still an inconvenience to anyone using a specific version of Chrome and IE, evidentally it is also impacting bitdefender as well.

There's a lot of redirect spam here. Makes using the forum on a computer very frustrating. It's fine on a tablet.
Are you logged in with your profile when that happens? If I remember correctly (and the forum), a while back that was a problem -- "guests" saw a lot of ads that logged in users did not. Although I think that seemed to be more of mobile issue than desktop.

Rogue popups usually show up around the holidays. If you see one, we need the URL and a screenshot so we can get it blocked.

Bit Defender is NOT rogue.. its a legitimate app and a very good one at that..

He even showed the certificate from a different name that what is resolve as in DNS.. this is normal its to protect users....

Doesn't mean he has a adware program.. on the contrary Bit Defender is probably the best adware programs available.. you really should refrain from giving advice until you have ALL the details.

Just had another page hijack.

I believe I was on
https://www.pacificaforums.com/forum/209-dealers-purchasing-ordering/41123-can-anyone-tell-me-if-seems-like-good-otd-price-canada.html
(Chrome, Windows 10)

When McAfee popped up the "unsafe site" warning.

Not sure if I had just tried to go to another thread from the "Recent Discussion" list on the right.

I got a McAfee intercept (image attached.) It happened at least one other time in the last couple of days, but I thought it was a careless click.
Unfortunately, the full URL is not visible

I am logged into the site.

If you right click that red link and "copy link address", you should be able to get the full version. If not... maybe McAfee has a record of the block? Not personally familiar with the software

Just got it again on the "preview post" in the new parking brake thread. Look after domain=
But that is just where it being hijacked to. Not yet getting it on any other tabs (hope that comment doesn't jinx that.)

I copied the URL from the address bar -- didn't see you comment until I came here. Have to run a full scan tonight.

I thought I sent a link yesterday when I Got Hijacked on a Windows 7 PC (not at home.) That was to a different URL. Maybe I posted to the wrong thread. I'll check when I get home to PC. Haven't figured out how to manipulate this mobile version properly to find it.
