I use Norton antivirus software.
This event just started a few minutes ago. When I tried to bring up SIGforum using Internet Explorer, I got a page that said Dangerous Website blocked.
Norton Safe Web site says it has analyzed sigforum.com and found computer threats.
When I use Chrome to log in, I do not get any warning messages.
Has anyone else seen this ?
The problem is repeatable.
adding: I went directly to Norton Safe Web site and entered sigforum.com in the search box. This is the response:
more adding: I haven't experienced any issues accessing and posting on SIGforum. (except for the Norton Safe Web message that just started tonight).
I just got the same exact warning on my computer (Dell Win7 Pro SP1 64bit). I'm running Firefox 56.0.
I just checked Internet Explorer 11.0.46 and got the same warning there too.

If you click on the small down arrow, to the right of "Threat Report" at the bottom of the detail page shown above, you'll see that the thread that triggered the Norton warning is this one:
The thread probably contains some links to some risky sites.

From now on, gentlemen, when you get some hilarious message from a scammer, or when you go to some website and get a threat alert, do not, under any circumstances, post that crap here.
As soon as I see such threads, I'm going to delete them, and any member who makes a habit of posting such things here will be removed from the forum.
This could have been avoided, very easily, by keeping that shit out of this forum. Ridiculous.
