    Default FYI: Norton doesn't seem to like this site at the moment.

    The laptop version I just upgraded to says the site is "suspect". The mobile phone version says the site has "known issues" and advises me to not come here.

    Norton report here:
    http://safeweb.norton.com/report/sho...animeforum.com

    I notice they have a link to click on for site owners.

    This isn't a problem for me (other than worrying about the site being infected), but it might prevent some new sign ups.

    This is an old report. The phishing attack Norton points to is an invalid link, not to mention that the arcade has been disabled for a few years now. At the moment, this site is as safe as an internet site can be.

    I'll bug Ace to get them to either remove or update the report though.

    Thanks for letting us know. ^_^

    It seems Norton likes the site even less, or maybe it was because I went to www.animeforum.com/forum.php specifically.

    This time it blocked the page and made me click a couple times to get through. What pops up is:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    blocked red-x

    I submitted a re-evaluation report to them. Norton is one of the least safe and most buggy pieces of software to use, and fails utterly as a security tool, I can't count the amount of systems that I had to clean off, after Norton failed to stop an infection, and gotten itself corrupted to the point that it's own uninstall failed. So I am not at all surprised that their internet security program is as big of a joke as their anti-virus tool is.

    Maybe, but I think every company and school I've been at has had some sort of arrangment with them. Usually including discounts or free copies for home computers. So I imagine it's pretty popular and this will hurt AF if left as is.

    Well the page they mention as a problem hasn't been around for months, and I filed for them to re-check things. Not much else can be done from my end with them I fear.

    The linked report is now showing all clear, but I think the best way to deal with this is to disable the norton safeweb addon in the browser since these things can be a pain in the neck if things go awry (I ended up disabling the avast web reputation tool, as every once in a while it kept bogging down the browser if it wasn't able to connect to it's servers).

    Yup, Norton emailed me today to say that it's updated and the site is now listed as clean.
