    This is strange!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I went to go on to the Espresso Company Australia (ECA) site from the Sponsors link and I get this the attached warning popping up on my screen - Ive never seen this one before?

    Anyone think of a reason why it might be coming up?

    Cheers
    Di

    Yes I get the same thing on Firefox
    Strange ?? Must be FF security settings

    But on (IE) internet Explorer the link works and loads OK

    Some attack sites intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.

    I think the highlighted part is the most relevant.

    giggled like a schoolgirl....


    Yep depending on content... Many legit sites can caught detected as running harmful/ funny *scripts or links to bad places etc.. *Then if PEBKAC kicks in, the site can be reported...

    OPPPSSS - *PEBKAC = Instant coffee drinkers *:D

    When going to many new places I use FF and always run script blocker to manually validate any and all scripts .

    I have installed a FF add on
    Ghostery 1.5.1
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9609

    A little pop up comes up to inform you if someone is watching you

    Coffee Snobs has * Woopra watching us but dont fear as this is what it does

    My avast goes off if you go to the that supposedly host the possible malware.

    It could be that the site is hacked maybe.

    Has anyone thought to notify the espresso company?

    I bet that they dont know its happening.
