"Fraudulent" websites

DrudgeReport.com has been listed by some member as a "fraudulent" website. I see on another thread that Slate.com is also listed. The problem here is that people are playing games. Let's screw with conservatives or let's screw with liberals. This is time consuming and aggravating! For those on someone's political payroll or living in mom's basement this may be great fun. For those of us that are grownups, we like to see different ideas. So I hope Norton responds to these a little faster and recognizes that snowflakes and sidewalk commandos are messing with their billion dollar world wide business! For those that engage in this behavior, please show your true commitment for your cause and self-immolate. To Norton, 20 year old websites do not suddenly become fraudulent. It is their livelihood!  symres:C:\Program Files (x86)\Norton Security\MUI\22.8.1.14\09\01\coUICtlr.loc/KNOWNBADREDIRECT.HTML

And old web sites can get hacked, and suddenly be malicious. You can check the URL with www.virustotal.com to see if other security products also flag the site. If they do not, you can report false positive indications here https://submit.symantec.com/false_positive/

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

And I just got blocked from foxnews.com. I might have to change my virus protection...it appears that someone at Symantec has it out for conservative users. I've been using Symantec/Norton products for over 20 years, but I've about had it with this nonsense.

Re: "Fraudulent" websites

www.foxnews.com is not a fraudulent website.  Neither is Drudge Report.  If Norton wants to get into politics then they should mind their own business.  I have several advanced degrees in politics and law and am quite able to distinguish fact from fiction.  

I also read MSN, NBC and all kinds of news sites.

Re: "Fraudulent" websites

Not sure what is happening with this. I have tried all the sites listed here as being blocked, and I did not get any blocking.  Win 10 and NSBU 22.8.1.14

Maybe a geographical issue. I am in Canada.

Will be interesting to see what Norton finds out about this.

I've had no problems here from Oz either.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Hello

From what I have seen in the Forum, EarthLink WebMail may be affected also.
