    Probably cookies. Could be harmless.

    It's showing as a malicious toolkit, so I doubt its cookies.

    Its been like this for a while its actually the lead form that Daves running but i think it only shows on the main domain root.
    www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/ is fine as far as i know.

    Just some damn antivirus dont know the difference between an opt in email form and a virus

    Has been reported in the past daves call on to remove it or not. Its perfectly harmless yet annoying

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for the heads up.

    This is so silly that an optin form pop up is marked as virus by norton. Amazingly, it have actually blocked the BHW homepage for my system, i can only access forum by clicking on category. So weird.

    Another thing that was pointed out the previous times this topic came up is that actually NORTON 360 is bangin! I was anti Norton for years cause I got attacked with free Norton. Many of the most experienced BHers agree that N 360 is primo and the virus thing is a glitch. The only part of the group that gets that warning is "Home" for some reason.
