Why does be matter you shouldn’t be using the same password on a forum that you use for your actual personal information.

Thanks AG,
I know you’re trying to help others.
If nothing else, It may remind somebody to change their password if they haven’t for a while.

Just goes to show that the malware out there is trying to grab any and everything it can. Thanks for the reminder to keep my Norton security up to date.

Your not bothering me but it’s kind of like the whole alder comments you guys are beating a dead horse. There have been numerous threads with this site is unsecure they need to change it blah blah blah. Like this one that already explains it http://lumberjocks.com/topics/256769 . No one called you a dummy so don’t be so quick to be defensive.

As this site isn’t HTPPS, yet over-zealous anti-virus software is going to do this from time to time. I also use Bitdefender, and it used to do it a lot, but I just added this site to the ‘exclusions’ and no more issues.

I’ve had Bitdefenders for several years now and this is the first time for this site.

Some people would rather hang around with the nubbies and talk about the weather and what they had for lunch than discuss real woodworking topics.

Thanks for the warning AG! Much Appreciated! I use Avast AntiVirus and have received similar Notices from them , but just that they Blocked it. They also mention the Missing “HTTP and/or The SSL” and they put a Permanent “Not Secure” ih front of the Web Address

I use the same Password for Some Sites as Avast also remembers them for me and I can change them whenever I want to.

I don’t understand why Anyone would Bitch about your Post. Your trying to WARN/HELP guys about a possible Danger and they’re Whining about it? Go Figure!!

Thanks Again Buddy: Rick S.

NO “HTTP or SSL” is Bad Enough but why are they now putting My Replies INSIDE the Block Quotes that I’m Replying to.
