When I open Proz website in IE this morning, I got a warning message from my ISP. It works fine in Firefox, though.

====================================================================
http://proz.com/

This site is: Harmful

You should avoid visiting this web site
F-Secure has found evidence of harmful behaviour on this web site. To the best of our knowledge, it is not safe to visit this web site.
====================================================================



Does anyone get this msg?

I used to get it from McAfee Site advisor Jan 20, 2010

At least it said to be cautious, until several weeks ago. Now it is ok.

I don't use F-Secure, though.

Dear jaymin,

Thanks for reporting this. Would you mind submitting a support request specifying your Internet Explorer browser version? This should help support staff look into this further.

Many thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Lucia

Similar experience Jan 21, 2010

I have not been able to go to the proz website since Monday (18/01/10). The connection ‘hangs up’ and the status bar shows 'Transferring data from ads.proz.com'.

I am using Firefox and IE8 and like Jaymin F-Secure 2010. At the moment I can access the site through the AOL browser.

I shall issue a support ticket now but thought I mention it here as there might be others experiencing the same.

Known problem Jan 21, 2010

AFAIK, the problem is known (there was a short thread about it some months ago) and is linked to F-Secure's settings.
