I'm not getting a warning about anything. When you try it, is there a particular site that is getting flagged?

Not gonna click it to see what's up, but you guys might want to check this post:

Newly registered user, first ever post, Dropbox link. It may be nothing but it smells fishy to me.

I googled them up based on their email when they registered because we've been getting a ton of spammers lately and I just check everyone. They're actually just a huge Joan Didion fan, as per the username.

Not sure where to put this...not ILX, but seems to be the thread.

I got one of those ransomware e-mails about three weeks ago. It got my attention because the subject line had a password I used to use a lot a decade ago but haven't used for ages. The e-mail was ridiculous and of course I didn't respond.

Didn't occur to me until today that a) I still use that password for ILX (an automatic login, so I never think about it), and b) my user profile links to my homepage, and you can get my e-mail address there.

So I'm not 100% sure the e-mail reached me via some ILX security issue (which is 100% my own fault for keeping my name and homepage on my user profile--I'm going to remove those), but it would seem to make sense.

Getting a Norton alert if I try to open all messages in Posts you had second thought about and decided not to post - put them here - something about network traffic from and/or IP ?
