    Probably shouldn't direct link a suspected trojan.

    Thanks for pointing this out. We're aware of the problem and are working on it. I deleted the links.

    We think the problem has been fixed. Please post here if anyone receives warnings from their anti-malware software.

    I'm still getting the same warning posted above. Using Laptop or mobile, both protected by Norton.

    The fact that it's intermittent suggests that the warning is caused by an ad. Do you get ads on CFC? If so, can you correlate the warning to a specific ad?

    I just got a message from Firefox; it wouldn't let me connect to CFC because of an unsafe security certificate (I think that's what it said). I'm back because I clicked "add an exception" (was just trying to post in A&E when that happened).

    Can anyone advise me as to what's going on with that? The only other place this ever happened was on a store's website and since I didn't want to buy anything there at the time I just forgot about it.
