Default MALWARE WARNING clicking through "VD IDENTIFICATION" ???

Anyone else getting this warning when clicking through the "VD IDENTIFICATION" drop-down list??? I clicked "DRUM BADGES" & the warning popped up.

I have an iMac,

Chris

Hi Chris,

What browser are you using? I have both Firefox, my primary browser, and IE 11. You are correct that a warning comes up for Firefox, but works fine in IE 11. If you know the link to be good, which it is, just jump through the hoops to add the link as safe for Firefox. Just something about Firefox that I also encounter from time to time. Haven't check with Google Chrome. Maybe someone who uses Chrome can let us know.

Hmm... well, I did get double warnings about this link when attempting to let Firefox know that the site is safe. Maybe our Webmaster, David, can look into this. Odd, as I've never had this issue before.

I use Chrome and have not encountered the OP's situation.

Chris!

We have found no issue, however ... as mentioned it could be Firefox or iMac generated. I let David know, and we'll see what he says. Also, NO WORRIES on the thread/post being seen! This should have gone in the General category, thus it was moved there. What our experience has been is this: "Most" members click on the "New Posts" when they visit repeatedly, thus your thread/post will always come up regardless of category, or which one's you feel are visited more frequently! ... otherwise why even bother having categories? <smile> Your head's up is appreciated though! We THANK YOU for the notification! BEST!!!

I've been getting the same warning for the last few days. I am using Windows 10 with Chrome. When I use IE10 on the same computer, I do not get the warning.

Yep, this is the warning from Firefox. However, if I go directly to the Drumguide website, drop down Vintage Drum Identification and click Drum Badges, I don't get the warning.
