Not sure why this just started today for me and others had this warning for months. I tried clearing all my browser history, but the site advisor is still showing red. Its not hurting anything, just wondering why it happened today and I can't get it to go away?


Have that too.

Today the McAfee is Gray. Should be Green. At least it is not Red

My company's firewall started blocking the site today for being malicious.


My large (>170K employees) employer is also blocking DBSTalk now as McAfee flags it as malicious.

Since the mobile stays in the vehicle during the work day I no longer have access to DBSTalk during a typical day.

There are a number of us on here who are affected

I also have to use my tablet at home until I do something about McAfee (Company-provided) on my laptop.

Unless you are seeing a notice from your own software on your computer saying it has intercepted and blocked malware that was being downloaded to your computer at that very instant, most such blocking notices are based on a list of sites with known (or maybe just reported) malware downloading histories.

Just as a site cannot be placed on such a list before malware from the site gets detected/reported, sites don't drop off such lists instantly, either.
