Norton blocked my signin today saying that this is a suspicious site. When are you going to provide Secure Sign in? Here and the beginners.

Just a comment - not to throw stones at anyone - but this is an issue that's been brewing for a long time.

Now I don't follow phBB forum software, but has phBB addressed this issue? If it has, has our forum installed whatever phBB software addresses this issue?

For you lurkers out there, phBB software is used for this message board, as well as many other forums with a similar goal. It is quite popular and runs some very popular - and heavily trafficked - forums.

This is not about phpBB. The issue is because of the missing https protocol. We will be migrating soon.

Yes, but does phpBB support https protocol? Or is that strictly a web server issue?

The problem with Norton appears to be fixed as it did not intercede today. Looking forward to the https: sign-in coming.

I agree that there is no https for this site, but Obviously Norton is wrong here, we already know that this site has clean content. By chance even if there were any malware implanted as drive-by attacks, still Chrome would alert users.
Chrome by itself would warn people of suspicious sites, which it does not.

Personally I think Norton is crap. Vanilla Windows Defender is much better.

Next time it happens, it did not happen today, I will do that.

The only time I relied on Windows Defender I got hacked. No thanks.

BTW. I am using Firefox 61.0.2 64 bit.

Yes, well. My Firefox is up to date, Firefox allows cookies for this site and is set to delete them when closed. I have also run Ccleaner to remove cookies. Still get the message although not when I first logged on this morning but I did for this logon. It only happens, for me, on this site.

It is still a problem for Norton as one hand says there is nothing wrong and the other hand says that there is something wrong.

As I only get the problem with this site perhaps it is the way the logon process works and Admin will have to talk with Norton.
