Hello. Whenever I do a search or view a product on eBay, I get the "Fraudulent Web Page Blocked" screen, claiming that "this web page is a known fraudulent web page. It is recommended that you do NOT visit this page". The homepage of eBay is not affected, only searches and items. Does anyone know why a perfectly safe site that I visited just last night is suddenly prompting this reaction from Norton?

I can also confirm this. I can only guess that the web protection definitions are faulty, but im not sure since I havent searched ebay for anything for a while prior to today. Hopefully it gets worked out.

What version of NIS are you running? Support - About.
What operating system and service pack do you have?
Have you manually run LiveUpdate, rebooting as necessary, until no updates are available?
Is the search you mention the search provided by the eBay main page?
Does this message appear for all pages on eBay except the main page?
I just tried a couple of searches on eBay.com and did not get any warnings. Can you tell us what search phrase you used, so we can try it for you?

This is confirmed. It must have been a recent update (today) as I buy and sell on ebay a great deal. Ebay will need to be notified as well. Home page appears just fine...leave it to look OR search at another category and Norton jumps on it.

I can confirm this too. Just for anything for the ebay site (enter search item and click search) will trigger the warning.

Norton version 22.214.171.124
Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit Service Pack 2
Ran Live Update until updates were complete

Those of you having this problem....
Are you logged in to an account, or just visiting the page?
Are you on eBay .com or .ca or other?
I am not having this issue with my NIS 126.96.36.199

I just got off of the phone w/ebay customer service and they are starting to get a steady flow of calls pertaining to this situation. My best guess is some sort of anomoly was issued in the latest automatic update that caused this. Ebay indicated that they were "on it" and thanked for the input.
