"Threat secured" message keeps popping up
« on: July 07, 2020, 03:44:48 AM »
How do I figure out which site is causing this message to pop up? I've got a zillion tabs open in Firefox, and I don't see any information in the message that indicates which site/tab I need to close.

I did start going through my tabs and closing the ones that weren't my usual tried-and-true ones (Facebook, Etsy, etc.) and the ones that I didn't need, but the alert keeps popping up.

I'm hoping someone can help me figure out what tab/site I need to close.

In case my attachment doesn't show up, here's what the alert says:

Threat secured
We've safety aborted connection on tie.247-inc.net because it was infected with URL:Blacklist

Threat name: URL:Blacklist
Severity: (looks low)
URL: https://tie.247-inc.net/data
Process: C:Program Files/Mozilla Firefox.firefox.exe
Detected by: Web Shield
Status: Connection aborted

Thanks.

I'm getting the same thing with Chrome. Could it be a false positive? it does it when I try to go to bestbuy's website.

Very interesting. I also have Chrome, so I accessed the Best Buy website and immediately got the same "thread secured" message that I got on Firefox. The message kept repeating until I closed the Best Buy tab.

As far as I can tell, I don't have a Best Buy tab open on Firefox. (I used the feature that searches tabs, and didn't find anything for Best Buy.) And I haven't gotten any alerts on Firefox for a couple of hours.
