Security Alert

  ened 14:44 06 May 2009

There I was happily browaing away when I tried to access this site and got the following message:
Your request has triggered a security alert....."

I noticed I had been logged out and was not able to log in (although that might have been my fault for wrong password).

I tried closing the browser and even re-booted but still the same message.

All other sites were okay and I have just tried again (approx one hour later)and all is okay.

Did this happen to anyone else?

Yes - to me. The site was v-e-r-y slow loading, so I clicked "Refresh" and got that security alert.

It seems OK now.

Yup and I thought it was Windows 7 (IE8) that did it as was having a break from setting it up.

seems we all got caught with it, had me running SAS scan in case I was infected.

Yep, had the same on and off for the last hour or two

And me! Following all my problems with Opera, I have now moved to IE8 which until this, was working fine...

Oh no I thought...

my SAS antispyware scan threw up a pcadvisor tracking cookie not done that before not sure if harmless just for tracking the posts you view or how much it tracks. SAS had to reboot to clear it.

not login cookie thats still intact.
