When I try any link within a thread I get a message that says that api.vigilink.com has been reported as unsafe

This website has been reported to contain the following threats:

Malicious software threat: This site contains links to viruses or other software programs that can reveal personal information stored or typed on your computer to malicious persons.


Is there a problem?

All the external links on AO go via Viglinks. You've probably got an overly sensitive security setup on your machine. I believe Viglinks can be turned off by visiting this page; VigLink - Opt-Out

That sounds like a caching problem, possibly due to the slow speed that AO appears to be running at the moment.
Did you do a screen capture?

Looks like a recent MS security update has triggered this as it's not just us; getting a new Microsoft warning message on links this AM - AVS Forum

It's not something that you need to worry about; Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page for api.viglink.com

No as at work ...

At first i thought I'd imagined it then happened again but with a diff style advert.

The first said I was the 9999 th person to visit AO ... thought I'd won something ...

the second just said it was an advert for AO ...
