    Suspicious Connections

    I believe it's been yesterday, today (a few minutes ago) and maybe once or twice within the last 3 or 4 days, that I got a "Suspicious Connection Blocked" message, when joining this site. Is there any commonality with others having the same message? I may be the only one, but just checking in, in case there's something we can do.

    Thx.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    I haven't had any issues with this site. Maybe it's connected to an ad you're getting?

    Anyone else having this situation?

    Thx!

    I am protected, but I was trying to make sure all is well, in case someone else gets affected.

    Maybe it's just on my side.

    If I see it again, I'll pass on what it is I observed.

    I received a cert error on this site about a week ago - only one time, never since. A rogue ad sounds likely.

    Browser: Chrome
    OS: OpenSUSE linux

    Thanks for the input. And the added information. When we report things, it always help the tech team to know browser, OS and type of device.

    Rastic noticed something back in August 2019. Not sure if it's the same issue.

    Just got another "suspicious connection" when I visited this page.

    Browser: Edge
    OS: Windows 10

    I will not report single events going forward, unless someone asks. Just an update.

    FTR....I do not get many of these "suspicious connections", but because I did see a couple lately from other than this place, I assume all is well here (meaning it's on my side). Hope that helps.

    I'd recommend a new web browser.

    Sounds like a good idea. Not frequent at all.....just a few times a week, and only recently started. But yeah. Makes sense.
