http://www.ancestorsatrest.com/ Firefox prevented a search as said Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to prf.hn. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.0
I have removed the link
But I also have antivirus on my computer and noting was detected
its not uncommon to get false positives on stuff like this.0
I also tried accessing it with Firefox - and got no such message on my side.0
Those messages come from the browser checking a couple of databases for websites that are known to have been hacked or contain malicious data in the past.
Frequently you will get a website where they don't keep on top of things and if their site is hacked, trojans can be installed there.
As for me, if the site has a bad reputation to the point that it has been place in a common list of bad sites, then I have no interest in it. The difference between Karen and Dennis' experience may have to do with version numbers and/or platforms being used. Also if a page is already in Cache on your PC, the browser won't complain about it since you already accepted it earlier.0
A little more info on the malware domains databases. Here is just one of many public service blacklists of malware related domains. www.malwaredomains.com currently has over 17,000 sites identified that they publish in a way that browser blocking tools can use. These include both domains that may have just recently been hacked, but they also include "immortal" malware domains (have a look at the immortal_domains.txt file located at:
These types of lists are used to block you from accidentally entering one of those sites. Your anti-virus software won't detect anything, because the browser won't even let you go there (unless you override it). Last time I looked a few years ago, there were well over 30,000 varieties of virus alone for Windows. If you really trust your anti-virus software, you can go to any of those websites in that immortal_domains.txt file and look around.
For me though, I prefer for my browser to just keep me away from accidentally entering a site that is known to have had trouble in it, regardless of whether it was hacked or it was contaminated intentionally by the site owners.0
