I was browsing this site and my router sent me a message that it blocked a suspicious site at 12:54:44 AM.  Checked my browser history and I was on this site.  It appears I may have been reading or clicked on a link in the "Sound Bath" thread.  


Here is the text:


Event number : 1

RT-AC87U's AiProtection detected suspicious networking behavior and prevented your device making a connection to a malicious website (see above and the attached log for details).Suggested actions:...

And the text of the message is:

2017-04-11 00:54:40 E0:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx attempts to surf a limited website ,the connection has been blocked

Any thoughts as to what happened? I'm thinking it is not site related, just want to verify...

Considering it's an ad-heavy local TV station news site, I wouldn't be surprised if something tried to pop up that didn't seem kosher.


I use the "Disconnect" software to automatically block/hide the obnoxious ads that TV and newspaper sites are notorious for.


I just tried the link again and it came up fine.

Strangely I had a couple of instances tonight as well where clicking a thread or one of the categories got me a server type warning.

I think its a glitch somewhere along the lines.....sweeping across many sites and links....

I was getting the warning windows from my Anti-virus, "site not safe".....and I was clicking into Comcast!

Ok, I was just reading this thread & I clicked on the blue forum link at the bottom & I was directed to a notice on this site from 2012 about going offline for a digital protest. It was something Robert had posted then.

I checked the security logs of the site for the ISP Matt and all is just fine here. It sounds like it was an issue with and not aw.
