I am with talk talk and a website I was visiting has suddenly been blocked. It was working 20 minutes back but now I get this message:

Reported Attack Site

This web site at torrentsgalaxy.com has been reported as an attack site and has been blocked based on your security preferences.


Attack sites try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.

Some attack sites intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.


any way to get around it?

Presumably you're using Firefox, from that text. Is there not anything that says "Ignore this warning" in the bottom right hand corner of the big red box? I wouldn't really recommend it though, these warnings are there for a reason.

It honestly is a fine site, I have been using it for ages. Yes I clicked that and it took me to the log in page, however as soon as I enter my log in details, I get the same message.

Tools > Options > Security > uncheck "Tell me if the site I'm visiting is a suspected attack site" but be careful when browsing :rolleyes: I suggest you turn it back on when you're finished.

I got that message too using firefox when I just went to the address. But there is an "ignore this warning" link at the bottom-right corner of the box, like secretmessages said
