    Opera 12 fraud warning



    I realize Opera 12 is as old as shit, but this is slightly worrisome. How did Broken end up on a list like this?

    We literally run no ads so I don't know what to tell you. Maybe Jenny has some info on why it might be on a list but there are zero warnings on any of my browsers.
    None on I.E., Mozilla or Chrome (and Google is the first one to panic if something's wrong) I don't use opera though, so I don't know what to tell you about that.

    I find it weird that your first pic says we're suspected of fraud and the second is malicious software.
    Maybe it has something to do with your "old as shit" (your words, not mine) Opera 12 browser. The site says the current stable version is 41.
    My HEVC/H.265/x265 videos can be played with either VLC or MPC-HC



    Does anybody know how the story really goes, how the story really goes, or do we all just hum along..?

    No anything runs here unless it's something to do with a imagehost. I do have a donor button from paypal here.

    This kind of message seems to appear with Norton as well. A friend was trying to access a birdwatching site and Norton flagged it as dangerous. I also use Norton and could access it normally. I'd say it's an error, but how did it arise? Good question.

    I too only recently started getting these warnings (using Opera 10.10 for just this site)
    Its now started popping up full page adverts. Popup blocker looks to be non-effective.
    Edit: Now looks like whenever I click anywhere, or on a link it loads up a about:blank or opens some nonsense advert.
    Hmmm

    I noticed that something has changed yesterday. I'm not sure why but I have a message in with the boss to take a look at it as I don't have full access in AdminCP to check everything.

    +1 here

    even clicking on the thanks button can open up some other page for me - seriously considering switching away from internet explorer 1

    Same here. I am getting full page spam pop ups every time I come to the site and often when clicking stuff.
