Safe Web blocks website

A website I wanted to visit is blocked by Norton with a message "Dangerous Website Blocked". I want to go to the site anyway because I have been there with another device, and believe I can safely visit it (having also checked Norton for what the threat was). But when I click on "Continue to the site" I don't go there. Instead I go to a Symantec page: "Error: Page Not Found". Note: this happens in Chrome, but I just tried with Firefox and the "Continue" option works in that browser.

Hello Dave4252

If you give me the name of the site so it is not clickable, I can have the site checked out by the Safe Web Team.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Re: Safe Web blocks website

I'm not comfortable publicly identifying the website, because I don't think there is anything intentionally malicious about it. According to Norton, there is one threat on the site, identified as "Web Attack: Facebook Event Invitation Scam". It may even be a link in a user comment on the site. I'm pretty sure I can navigate this site and avoid getting drawn into a phishing scam, so I want to use the site anyway. My problem is that the "Continue to site" button does not work in Chrome. It does work in other browsers, so I think the problem is between Norton and Chrome. Ideally Symantec would fix the code so the "Continue to site" button works in Chrome. If you want, though, I can send you the website name in private.

Hello Dave

Let's see what the Safe Web Team says about this issue you are bringing up before you mention the site. They won't be able to check if your website is clean or not. Are you the owner of this website or are you just wanting to visit that site?

Have a Good Day and

Thanks.
