    Exclamation Urgent: RR phishing warning

    I just want to put this out there that I get this when I try to reply to a thread or create a new thread:

    Deceptive site ahead

    Attackers on www.rr-bb.com may trick you into doing something dangerous like installing software or revealing your personal information (for example, passwords, phone numbers, or credit cards). Learn more



    When I click on details I get this:

    Google Safe Browsing recently detected phishing on www.rr-bb.com. Phishing sites pretend to be other websites to trick you.

    You can report a detection problem or, if you understand the risks to your security, visit this unsafe site.



    I have a screenshot but I keep trying to upload it on here and it won't let me. Not sure if it would affect all browsers, but I'm using Google Chrome.
    What a wonderful day it will be when we hear the trumpet blasts!!

    Mindy, I'm going to attach your thread to an existing one that addresses the same or similar issues. The site owner is looking into the problem(s).

    If you're at RR-BB.com, you needn't worry about phishing, as that is the correct URL.

    Just FYI. I had this happen to me with another site---Lucianne.com. This happened every time I logged on for about 4 months---it would take me three or four times to access the site...and then after about 4 months everything went back to normal...it was the first time that I had ever seen this and now it is happening with this site although I personally have not had any problems accessing RR.

    I get the message of RR message board being a deceptive site if I type the web address into my browser. I get in fine if I go through the link in the main RR website.

    A few months back a way to get here through a web search was hacked. I wonder if that as anything to do with it.

    I finally got this warning and was able to continue after filling out a form saying they were mistaken about the site. I don't think it's just Google, although the Google name was prominent on the warning page... seems like there is a consortium of companies trying to make the web a safer place.

    As Steve mentioned upstream, there is at least the possibility that someone flagged this site as a phishing site...

    Just letting those interested that I am also getting this deceptive site message on FF v55.03
    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me....

    I use Avast Internet Security, and I get the message that the connection has been reset.
    The antivirus on my phone also blocked it as a malicious site, but I turned off safe browsing and got through. Didn't work on my pc though.
    I am using my son's iPad to for access ...this has been driving me nuts, since I started and ended every day on rrbb.

    I have been able to get access to the board without any warnings, etc. for the last 40-50 minutes, on my pc and through Avast, which had reset the connection.
    God and Todd, I assume...
