    I'm on my phone so can't see anything but does anyone else get the same on chrome? Or anything on any other browser? I have no idea what this pregnancy-layouts site is - something to do with tickers or something maybe? Do you think it's safe to look at it on my phone to see what it is?

    A google search doesn't seem to like them either (see pic) although I haven't visited the site. Might be worth asking SC to block their tickers just in case, or to investigate...

    That looks tiny - not sure if it opens any bigger on a computer. This one is bigger

    I assume it's because the tickers are clickable so it's detecting a direct link from here to there and it knows there's an issue with that site. So I assume anyone reading/posting on the forum is safe as long as they don't click on anything that takes them there. Will make sure someone checks it out though x

    Just thought you guys should know!

    It might put people off who are new because i imagine if you click in here from Google, it comes up with the warning screen xx

    Well it's not on there at least but I think you might be right that anyone using google chrome will get it when they're on here x

    I've had it a couple of times and I use chrome. I thought it was just my stupid security thingy (very tech me :lol:)
    It wouldnt let me access a couple of pages but that was all. Never had it for about a week now.

    Thank you :) It must just be that we have links to the ticker site that people can click on then. I'm not sure if there's an easy way to warn people if there are lots on here already so it might be easier to see if they can all be blocked xx
