This is what's doing it, so add 'm-analytics.net' to your hosts file in the meantime until we get it sorted out.

Here is a link which will guide you if you don't know what I mean Click

I have Norton 360. When I go to www.operationburnout.com, I get the red unsafe warning about this site. And just now, Norton caught a trojan from this site.

Maybe Cooper hates us and is putting all of those viruses on the site.

He'd actually have to visit the site to hate it :db:

I'm getting not only this but avast's virus warnings are starting to become more prevalent on other parts of the site as well (like on the forums).

I think something maybe wrong with your server.

I pressed Operation Burnout Forums today (June 21 Sunday) and Google Safe Browsing told me the same thing that it told Yabba, only this time the number of infected pages were more. This is what it said:

After an hour of trying to get past that annoying red screen on Firefox, I found my Internet Explorer link. I can't even post using Firefox on this site now. IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY!!! :wacko:

I was having the same problem, so I had to turn off "warn me about suspected attack sites". The thing is I can't just make OB an exception, so I have to turn it off entirely making me vulnerable to real attack sites :kwasny:

Hmm this came up for me for the first time today. Still think it's stupid.
Internet Explorer being stupid isn't aware of these things, whatever they may be.
