    I had no problems accessing the site on any of my devices, at any rate I doubt the quoted text is blocked by chrome and it contains everything you really need to know.

    The title is interesting: by listing specific browsers one is tempted to infer that others are not similarly vulnerable, but this does not appear to be the case.

    The fact that some people are being blocked and that I have never heard of this before and it references the Chinese I am going to assume that going to either web site is dangerous to me.

    I will be on the look out for other information concerning this though, thanks

    Assume whatever you wish although it does not reference the Chinese, it reference a Chinese researcher. That is a touch racist of you.

    They are probably both getting a security warning due to a targeted shared add, or something of the sort. However the site itself seems fine and information good.

    I was actually informed about this risk from a name I trust on a computer forum site that I have been a member of since 2001. But RF rules prevent me from posting links to other forums. So I traced his info back to this source.

    As I said thanks, the reference to Chinese is not racist but because it makes it hard for me to cross reference. Like when you get those e-mails about African royalty or English banks that have money for me.

    As to the security warning no doubt that it could be a shared add, which makes me question the site as I have high security settings on both Mozilla and chrome and there are quite a few sites I get warnings about and I like that as I get very few viruses and have never been phished or ransomed(knock wood).

    When I get some time I can post the conversation from the tech forums and a list of his reference. I'll just have to leave the site name and link out as last time I had a post talking about another forum it was deleted and I got a don't do that PM.

    It is a bigger security risk to remain in the dark over issues like this. Having worked for a bank I know how easily people get decived by phishing scams and if they can mask their website like this then they could make a fake banksite that looks just like the real thing.

    You know, Christian
    don't say English bank that's racist!
    Don't say Chinese or mex or whatever restaurant. That's racist too...just joking. I thought that was funny though.
