I don't know who is on charge of this kind of thing or if this is the correct place to post this but.... when I try to access Permies.com with my laptop I get a warning from my Antivirus that reads
"Bitdefender blocked this web page
The page you are trying to access contains malware.
Detected viruses: Trojan.JS.Redirector.AHT
Access from your browser has been blocked."

I can only view the site with my imac desktop computer.

Just thought whoever is in charge of things would want to know.

The address is www.permies.com/forum

My imac usually isn't bothered by viruses so I don't get blocked by my imac.

My laptop is a windows 7 machine using bitdefender as an antivirus and when I try to go to permies.com/forum I get the warning

However, I can go to the opening page that has Permies: goofballs that are nuts about permaculture as the heading and I get no warning. When I try to follow the first forum link from there to the permaculture forums I am blocked again and given the warning.

I'm looking into it. There are a lot of reports of this being a false positive based on Google advertisements - I suspect that this will be the case here, but I will check into it.

I've received confirmation from Bitdefender support that this was incorrect, and the detection has been removed. I assume that next time your software gets updated the erroneous warnings will go away.
