Are you downloading something.  Usually mirror sites are for handling downloads.

Re: Is this normal

For instances like that, if the site you end up on doesn't look good, don't go back.  You will run into oddities from time to time.  Sometimes just broken links, improperly made links.  If it was blocked, you should have no problem.  If you are concerned, you know the drill!

Re: Is this normal

Where are the messages coming from?  Norton or Internet Explorer?

Re: Is this normal

There is no problem. IE has blocked the scripting.  I use Firefox and NoScript to do the same thing.

Re: Is this normal

I think You missunderstand. I visit wwe.com often and sometimes when clicking on a page.. afer the page has loaded a blank ie page will very quickly open and close within the blink of an eye (I thought nothing of it). No warnings. recently while on wwe.com I got a warning about a blocked cross site scripting attack that was blocked by ie8. That makes me worry that thse ie pages that opened very quickly were attacks. Am I ok???

Its actually a whole different problem than the first post

Re: Is this normal

I didn't misunderstand.  If you have changed to IE 8 the response may be different than what you saw in IE 7. 

Cross site scripting (also known as XSS) occurs when a web application gathers malicious data from a user. The data is usually gathered in the form of a hyperlink which contains malicious content within it.

The scripting was blocked.  You are fine!  That is the reason for all the browser security improvements in IE 8 and FF among others.

Re: Is this normal

Nate -

The web site is going to serve up whatever it is programmed to send out.  There is nothing you can do about this; you are the client not the server.  Right now, it looks like IE8 has blocked this access.  I would think that you need to get the Parental and Privacy Controls add-in for NIS2009 and use the Privacy Controls part.  Eventually you are going to run into a web site that IE8 does not block; better to be ready then to have to try and undo the damage later.

Which brings up the best defense against malware.  A little thing someone on a different forum called 'Brain 2.0'.  The best security for your system is you.  If you keep getting attacked at the same web site, then don't go there.  Plenty of other sources for the same information on the web; one of the great things about the web now abundance of information from various sources to cross check with.

Norton 2009 have a 100% Intrusion Prevention Detection in Tests, so, if it was an Attack, Norton 2009 would have Detected and Blocked it.  If you are worried, you can always Run a Full System Scan with Norton and/or Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware in Safe Mode.  Are you using Norton 2009 Product?  If so, which one?  If not, what is your Windows O.S.?
