Visit both Coug & huskie sites. As of today I'm getting a warning that they're "reported attack pages." Anyone know anything about this?

What's "attack pages?"

I get a rather large popup that says:

REPORTED ATTACK PAGE!

This web page at mbd.scout.com has been reported as an attack page and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

Attack pages try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.

Some attack pages intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.



I'm not very computer savvy. Do any of you that are think this would be a big deal? It gives me the option to "ignore this warning" and proceed.

It may be ok, if you have a good anti-virus and web filter. It may be a false positive. Most anti-virus software errors on the safe side. I have Avast anti-virus with several layers of protection and I was able to access the site with no problems.

I hope this helps.

Same thing happened to me today on the Scout pages, OP.

Thanks Euro. I think my anti-virus is pretty decent.

I got a flu shot the other day. Does that work?
