This evening, every time I open a thread, I get an alert from Norton that my firewall has blocked an attack. This wasn't happening earlier today, and it doesn't seem to be happening on any other sites, or even on other pages on MDC, only when I open a thread (and I tried several different ones). Here is a screenshot of the alert from Norton:

500

And another one with the rest of the URL:

Thanks so much for letting us know and for the screenshot, Gaye! Fortunately, t was determined to be a false positive. More details here


I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!

Thank you for addressing this! I was worried my DH would say no more MDC for me!

Phew! I was hoping it was something like that! Not that it really stopped me from my MDC fix, I just figured that Norton would keep saving me. bag.giforngtongue.gif
