Everytime I've clicked on a thread today be it chat or HE or secondary or active topics, a pop up comes up to tell me my security shield has blocked an infected website or file. The description just says malware and it gives an address as http//

I'm obviously not going to click on it but wondered if it was my computer or something your end? Have you been infiltrated by something nasty? I always access mn on my desktop windows8

All other internet browsing is unaffected confused

Have you seen this thread? I wonder if they're related? What security suite are you using?

Hi everyone - is anyone still having this problem? Is is happening on every Mumsnet page or any specific pages?

I replied on other thread, glad I'm some ways it's not just me!

It is happening on every thread/page or topic I click on, including site stuff.

I'm not sure if at some stage I inadvertently hit any links, does anyone know if this can do damage to my phone, or cause access to private info? (technically challenged).
