KNOWN MALICIOUS WEBSITE

I received an e-mail from an association of which I am a member, inviting me to vote online in their annual general meeting, and providing a link to perform that vote. On clicking the link the next screen was a warning from Norton that the site to which the link led was a "known dangerous website". The web address of this screen was as follows:-

extension://bdaafgjhhjkdplpffldcncdignokfkbo/content/ui/blockedPage.html?originalURL=https://aa.virtual-meetings.online/login&reportURL=https://safeweb.norto...

I then telephoned the association and established that the AGM was being held and their e-mail was genuine. Now the Norton warning screen included a button whereby one could ignore the warning and proceed to the website. So I clicked on this button but the next screen was the same warning screen as before, with the exact same web address. Thus I had gone around in a circle. Is this caused by Norton or by the Association having the AGM?

The following are copies from within my “Settings”:

IMO it's just the vagaries of how you called the webpage.   
Try going to the website thru your browser address bar...not the email link.

Re: KNOWN MALICIOUS WEBSITE

Norton changed their opinion of the webpage and stopped sending warnings about it. I don't know exactly what caused their opinion to change. It's academic now, because I have successfully cast my online vote, but I didn't see an answer to my question. My question was not about whether Norton was correct in classifying the webpage as a known dangerous one.

Norton gives you the opportunity to ignore its warning and proceed to the webpage anyway.

On taking this opportunity I was confronted with the same warning page I had seen before. In other words i had gone around in a circle. Can someone address this specifically?

Curious, did you try Continue to the site, again?  
fwiw ~ I've seen Continue to the site reload the same warning page. 
Sorry, I cannot address this specifically.

Re: KNOWN MALICIOUS WEBSITE

I did hit "continue to the site" multiple times and had basically the same experience as you, including the screen that shows for a blink (which I haven't mentioned up to now) and the success on the second try (I think on one occasion it was the third try). But "success" in my case, if I remember correctly (sorry for this qualification, but at the time I wasn't expecting trouble and so didn't keep a record of every step I took) was only a limited success. After penetrating the Norton blockage, I had to enter my association membership number, satisfy the screen that I wasn't a robot, and then click to get a one-time PIN (OTP). I received the OTP by cellphone, entered it and clicked to proceed to the voting page, but instead received a repeat of the Norton warning page.

Regarding the website https://any.sm-brothers.com, I've hit it multiple times. On the first hit I received the browser-generated "Hmm, can't reach this page" or similar words (my browser is Microsoft Edge). On the second and subsequent hits this page did not appear. What I got was, for a split-second a screen saying "

ERROR 403 - FORBIDDEN

Why am I seeing this page?

Is there anything that I can do?

Understanding Filesystem Permissions

How to modify your .htaccess file

How to modify file and directory permissions".

After this split-second I got the Norton warning page, which allowed me to penetrate it on the first try, and then giving the "Error 403" screen permanently.

Regarding the website https://myiqvision.com, Norton functioned as you would expect it to function. First screen was the warning screen, and on clicking to visit the address anyway, the second screen was the allegedly dangerous screen. This happened to be something to do with testing your own IQ (I just looked at it).

The bottom line is, on the face of it Norton has a perpetual loop, or endless loop, in its programming, which I think should be reported to them.
