Webroot just labled OSG a 'suspicious' site??

Post by kdanie » Sat Nov 23, 2013 2:08 pm

I just went to get on OSG and my Webroot antivirus flagged it as a suspicious site where I am more likely to get bad stuff like virus, trojans, malware etc.

any idea what's up with that??

I thin that's perfectly normal. OSg is a shady looking site filled with gear pushers and guitar junkies.

Well, recently I clicked on some image here and the antivirus went berzerk. So, it may be just an issue of links to actually suspicious sites posted in here. My best guess, anyway.

If anyone finds suspicious links on OSG, please let one of the Modmin's know so we can put the kibosh on 'em.
