    Has anyone else had Norton Block the BHW home page?

    It tells me: "an intrusion attempt by http://www.blackhatworld.com was blocked"

    It's calling the attempt " HTTP Malicious Toolkit Variant Activity 8 "

    I had to go into the Norton firewall settings and uncheck that particular intrusion definition before the home page would load.

    Does anyone know what's causing this? I've never had it come up on any other site.

    I assume Norton is misinterpeting what's going on but I'm just curious if anyone else has seen this?

    Thanks

    It's the opt in newsletter in the top right. The script is fine. Norton is retarded.

    That's because it doesn't allow you to leave google.

    Norton is a big steaming pile of shit. IMO its the worst antivirus for slowing your system and blocking just about everything that shouldnt be blocked, while letting through everything that should be blocked.

    If you want help on this - contact their tech support :) Post back here with what they say so we can all have a laugh at their expense.
