Default Fly tying site reported as attack site.

http://www.danica.com/flytier/


I use this so often for reference but I am now getting a warning that danica.com is an attack site from my anti virus software. Are other members experiencing the same thing? Thanks all.

I got the same message, BUT it is not being report by your AV software. It is a screen generated in your browser. I am going to dig into it a bit and see what I can find

OK, so it looks like it is a google safety thing and it only affects users with Firefox and Mozilla. It is part of the new security controls that China has requested. Try going to the site in IE, I know IE is horrible but ..........

Quick easy fix.

Open Firefox, go to the tools menu. Go to options, click on security tab, UNCHECK the box that says "tell me if the site I am visiting is a suspected attack site". As soon as I did this, the warning went away and the page loads fine.

Best variety of flies and tying recipes online. You have to poke around a bit, but what a great site. Don't see how it could be malicious.

Hans website got hit up by some hackers....everything is now OK. Here is his response from another board. Hope this helps, John G.

"My profound apologies to you and any others who may have come across this warning. I have had some issues with site hacking, very annoying indeed!

The site is now totally clean again and I trust I now have safeguards in place to avoid this occurrence from rearing its ugly head going forward.

I have filed a report to Google asking for a fresh review the site and reconsider the warning status.

Regards,
Hans W
