    Default Norton Reports GPWA Forum as dangerous.

    Today my Norton toolbar reported the GPWA Forum as a dangerous place with known malicious attacks.
    It offered to direct me away - but let me "proceed anyway".

    Anyone else use Norton and getting that?

    Norton is maybe the worst AV on the market...many false positives....like a broken tire

    Try Avast,AVG or malwarebytes...

    Norton 360 is a good overall IT solution for small businesses with many PCs, tablets and mobiles.
    It encompasses anti-virus, safeweb, password management, backups and a lot more for about $100 per year.

    Thanks for your advice - but I have not found a competent and comparable offering.

    I try Norton last year, on a frozen VM System, the detection was very bad...almost impossible to remove Ratīs with this tool.
    Maybe it's better now, who knows..

    Gpwa was flagged many moths ago,script injection or similar...this can be the reason...

    Tried it to see if I'd get it as well and I did. To help the GPWA you can submit a false positive here: https://submit.symantec.com/false_positive/

    I already did. You'd need the software version(Norton 360... etc) and the product (Safe Browsing) and the gpwa.org url. So even members who don't have it can report a false positive.

    P.S Totally off topic and unrelated but why isn't the GPWA using https, it's a ranking signal, eventually chrome will tag it as unsecure as well, it doesnt take much time to switch.

    I was getting the same warning from Norton the past few days. It's fixed now. I have used Norton along with Malwarebytes on my laptops for years now with no issues. I wouldn't use my laptops without either one installed. They work great together.

    if u put one tool in the offline- not a active scan mode yes...if not both tools would try to drop the bad file in the quarantine...counterproductive!
