Malvertizement Warning

I recently tried to log onto, what I thought was a safe website, but I received an alert from Norton stating "Web Attack: Malvertisement Website Redirect 23" was blocked.  The attacking URL was listed as https, which I thought was suppose to be a secure website.  Besides not going to that website again, and not setting myself up for any libel action, is there anything else I should do?

Https means that the connection is encrypted so it cannot be intercepted and viewed by a third party.  It has nothing to do with the actual content of the website, be it malicious or otherwise.  A malvertizement is a malicious ad that loads when you view an otherwise safe website.  Disabling JavaScript in your browser is the best way to avoid these threats.

SendOfJive - thank you for that information and link.  I read the link and installed NOSCRIPT.  I went to those two sites and this time I did not get any warnings from Norton.  NOSCRIPT did show 5 programs trying to load and I guess stopped them.  Then I could not get logged in to the community site, to send this thank you note to you?  I had to disable NOSCRIPT before it would allow me to log in.  What did I do wrong or how do I allow logging into Norton Community?

Re: Malvertizement Warning

NoScript has a bit of a learning curve.  The idea is that it blocks JavaScript globally by default, and you, the user, must choose which sites to allow, which you do by clicking the NoScript icon at the top of the browser and making your choices.  When you are on the Norton site, you would need to allow norton.com and ckeditor.com (the text editor used by the site).  The other sites you see listed are not necessary for the Norton Community page to work.  It is sort of trial and error once in awhile (especially when you start out) but you should get the hang of it in a few days.  Almost all sites rely on JavaScript these days, so be prepared to allow the sites you regularly visit or need to use.  The idea is that most of the third-party sites you will see listed in NoScript can remain blocked, thus decreasing you exposure to potentially dangerous re-directs to malicious sites.  Here are some links to get you started:
