    Default Malware warning

    Since about 30 mins ago, I'm getting a warning every time I try to use Basenotes via the latest version of Safari.


    It says: Warning: Visiting this site may harm your computer

    So is there anything to them? What triggers them?

    probably ads, but it could be something deeper in the site's code. a friend of mine's forum has these warnings and he doesn't have ads.

    I'm getting the warnings using the latest version of Safari. When I use the latest version of Firefox, there are no warnings. I'm wondering what caused the sudden change as Safari wasn't getting them until now.

    I don't get the warning any more on Safari. (I haven't done anything different with my computer; my software was already up to date.)

    I'm on Safari and I haven't seen that malware message.

    However, I am still getting the obnoxious "Are you sure you want to leave this page?" message. If I click "Leave Page," it posts the message the way it's supposed to.

    Apparently that's a a "feature" of the updated software. I don't like it, and I'll try and find a way to kill it with my bare hands when I get back to the UK
