McAfee Blocks Claimed Attempt at Connection

Postby wserra » Thu Jul 04, 2013 12:23 pm

On a few occasions over the last couple of days, McAfee has blocked a connection it claims the board has attempted to make to 208.73.211.183 - oversee.net. Oversee (which I've never heard of) says that it "uses advanced technology to provide online advertisers with highly motivated customers" - "over 14 million pre-qualified consumer leads/month funneled to advertising partners". Might folks like this do a little phishing? I dunno, but it doesn't seem outside the realm of possibility.

Has this happened to anyone else?

I'm not seeing any rogue code when viewing the site from any of the styles.

Perhaps it's from a linked image or avatar. Do you remember which pages threw up the warning?

Hasn't happened again. If it does, I'll note the page.

Thanks, web.
