Hi!

I suppose this is an issue of my browser but I thought I'd let you know anyway...a few minutes ago I clicked my zappateers bookmark when a fake virus warning website appeared on which I certainly did not click any of the presented links. I made a screenshot, clicked the zt-bookmark again and entered the site with no problems. I don't know if that fake site has anything to do with a security issue regarding zappateers (since I do not understand the problem).

The fake site had this URL (see attached picture, incomplete URL displayed in my screenshot), ending with html?url=http://http://www.zappateers.com/bb/index.php like using the ZT URL...I don't know how that shit works.

Isn't Vodafone your Internet provider? You may get such a warning when trying to enter a site that isn't considered to be "safe", meaning it's not running the https protocol, which is the case here. Obviously they also want to sell you some antivirus software Wink
