Is Pocket GPS World aware Norton is 'blocking' the CamerAlert website as "Dangerous". Norton's related report https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cameralert.com%2F lists five occurrences of "Web Attack: Malicious JavaScript Redirection 6". I could not find any previous ref. to this in the CamreAlert forum.

I'm running the latest Norton Security and not had any issues.

Just noticed that it's highlighting CamerAlert.com where I've not been.

Earlier in the year the site DID get hacked but that was resolved shortly after - that was a chuffin' nightmare day!!

Anyway, there haven't been any issues for some time and we check it on a daily basis since then.

There are currently no issues with the site HOWEVER Norton Safe Web is giving security issues for the redirects that were detected months ago. Their page here: https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=cameralert.com gives the issues we had months ago but sadly the site does not give any information as to when they scanned it...

Domain blacklisted by Norton Safe Web: cameralert.com - reference
Domain clean by Google Safe Browsing: cameralert.com
Domain clean on Phish tank: cameralert.com
Domain clean on the Opera browser: cameralert.com
Domain clean by SiteAdvisor: cameralert.com
Domain clean by the Sucuri Malware Labs blacklist: cameralert.com
Domain clean on SpamHaus DBL: cameralert.com
Domain clean on Yandex (via Sophos): cameralert.com
Domain clean by ESET: cameralert.com

Only Norton Safe Web have us blacklisted with old issues that have been resolved for months...

After jumping through various hoops with Norton, they should now be re-evaluating the site.

Hopefully this will then resolve the issue although they don't say how long it will take...

Thanks for all that. Will now just ignore their warning and click through to CamerAlert.com.

Just selected CamerAlert.com from PGPSW site top level menu. Straight through with no Norton blockage so seems Norton are now satisfied. Thanks again.
