Norton blocks Guitarchat

Question

Thought I might as well post this here, Norton thinks Guitarchat is dangerous, doesn't give more details. Maybe someone at Norton is a bass player? No issues with Basschat. Could just be a false positive, but I know that sites and servers do sometimes get hacked.

The SSL certificate is valid, so looks like an erroneous error.

It's not saying it's a certificate error, chrome would pick that up anyway before Norton.

To be fair, you can see their point.

It looks as though Norton Safe Web has erroneously blacklisted the guitar chat site. Some discussion and explanation here:

https://www.redkitecreative.com/security/norton-safe-web-blacklisting/

It seems that Norton has been doing this and getting it wrong for some time now, and their process for getting sites un-blocked doesn't seem to be very efficient.

Yet more evidence to support my contention that Norton is a worthless heap of junk. I certainly wouldn't pay money for it when there are many better free alternatives.

Yes - meant to raise this a few weeks ago.  My next build is a 6-string electric (yes - I know) so I was going to put a build thread there too but, at the moment, Norton really, really, really doesn't like it...

I wish they'd block the FS sections here

I wish Symantec was easier to uninstall than it is.  In some cases, you need to download a special tool from an independent supplier to free the PC from the clutches of it's code.  A bit like a virus. 

Kaspersky is leagues better.

Fall I know from an ‘expert’ friend is the software is buried in different areas of the computer and although you may think you’ve erased it, the prog still sits in various ‘places’ onboard...
