    I started getting these a couple of days ago. The alerts seem to pop up while I'm at CFC, but I do have multiple tabs open.

    I'm using MBAM Premium and I got several alerts last night over the same thing that BirdJaguar is referencing.

    This particular notification ended up in my spam folder and when I moved it back to the inbox and clicked to come here, I got a "this site is suspicious" message.

    I'm using Firefox.

    CFC is the only site for which I ever get messages like this.

    I'm looking at this issue. So far, VirusTotal regards CFC as Clean (VirusTotal scans a site with multiple anti-malware engines) and there are no reports of false positives similar to this on the Malwarebytes website.

    Thanks Petek. MB pops up telling me that it is blocking it; so I'm not too worried.

    I installed MB Premium. I'll see if anything happens.

    (@Birdjaguar Typo in your last message?)

    Also, everyone (if necessary) should upgrade MB to the most recent version (3.7.1).

    Malwarebytes has been installed on my system for three days. I've run multiple scans with it, as well as a full scan with Windows defender. No alerts of malware either on my system or CFC. Absent additional information, I believe that CFC is clean and the alerts received by others are due to other causes. Please report any future malware alerts, and include the report. Thanks!

    Thanks to this thread, I noticed that MBAM was updated to v 3.7... I don't know why it did not update itself as usual, but it's up to date now, so thanks!

    I haven't had any alerts, or redirects either. It's been all good for the past while.
