We are allowed to surf the interweb at my work place (which I will not identify here), within reason, during our idle time. I usually hit my Concours, GMC truck, Toyota forums, and the local and national news sites maybe once a day. Some months ago I tried to access this forum and got a warning that it was "blocked" due to possible malware. I have left it alone and just come here with my home computer in the evenings.​
However, today I thought I'd try it at work again, and got a big read and black "Emergency Action Notice" on my screen. THE WEBSITE YOU ARE TRYING TO ACCESS IS BANNED DUE TO KNOWN MALWARE DISTRIBUTION AND POSSIBLE VIRUS DISTRIBUTION HISTORY. FURTHER ATTEMPTS TO ACCESS THIS WEBSITE MAY RESULT IN LOSS OF COMPUTER PRIVILEGES.​
Wow.​
Uuhhh...I don't know why this text is so garbled. I tried to edit it but can't get it fixed.​

Your post text is "right justified", that's all.

As for the malware warning ... a few people have commented on warnings but not many. False positives on their scanners I suspect but since I don't run the same OS (different vulnerabilities) I can't be sure.

probably because of the 400,000 trackers, beacons, cookies and other shit vs uses on this site.

My guess is your company uses some surfing monitoring/control software and may subscribe to some lists for blocking "bad" websites. Some how, maybe due to cookies, tracking, or the adverts, it is blocked. The message is very reminiscent of what we used back in my I.T. days with our surf control software.

that's what I thought too- but I checked the spamscore and stromtrooper.com is ok. I also checked several malicious IP lists and did not find this domain.


so most likely the IT team at his workplace blocked the site manually

Perhaps the IT folks at your work are not fans of your bike.
Try not constantly talking about your strom, your farkles, your weekend trip and all the great guys on stromtrooper and maybe it'll come back.:mrgreen:

That is a good note to keep in my mind. So far I can navigate this forum, but I'll reduce the frequency, just avoid problems.
