I think most modern antivirus software will scan web pages before they are opened and prevent most web browsers from opening the pages if it finds something. Even though 99% of the time it won't actually be able to do anything harmful to your web browser or user account they still like to block it so people feel like the AV software is working.
I don't have AV software because it makes everything too slow. I just don't run as administrator.

This morning I received warning while viewing new posts that Malware Bytes had blocked access from this site which was thought to contain malicious code. Since then I've checked and found that this site appears on some fifty spam blacklists. Where the problem is coming from I do not know.

|landmineop||The message I got was NOT from my phone. I was from my laptop. The message was taken directly from the Norton 360 that I use. The ONLY time this has happened is when I am on Sailnet looking at "new posts". It has happened twice in the last few days. When I check Norton it shows several attempts blocked, one right after another. Your opinions that they were not related to Sailnet are way off base. Stick to facts not hot air opinions.|

But where is the malicious code that someones AV software is detecting? Is there an advertisement which is causing it? Did someone post a link to a malicious website in one of their postings?
CharlieCobra, I saw the fake Google link but where did that come from? Was it just added to a random place on the sailnet website? Or in an advertisement or someone's post?
