any change to the forum?

Got this today when I went to get on the forum with Chrome (ie11 and edge work fine).

Did scans with avg and Malwarebytes, and they found nothing on my computer, and a google search of the page content says it is a legitimate page from Google Chrome.

That's a browser issue, in that our site hasn't got an SSL certificate despite using the https address. 

I discovered that it costs extra money per month for a static IP address and SSL certificate so that browsers dont give that warning. Of course it's BS as it pertains to out site. We don't contain nor link to malwate sites.

Sorry your having trouble SandMan, 

I believe this is a problem with your web hosts configurations and they should be able to fix this.

If you right click in the browser address bar where it says "Dangerous" thanks to google. You should get the dialog box showing the message and you can see where is says "Valid Certificate" Click on this and you can see the issue dates which are only 3-4 months from start to finish and should automatically renew every few months. this is a "shared certificate" and you don't need a static IP. 

I'm not sure if the host moved your site to a different server changing the shared IP or changed there policy etc. But everything checks out, look at the results below. 

For those not getting the message it's probably because you have the warnings turned off in your chrome settings. 

Ask your host why your current and valid shared cert is causing problems, show them your test results, if they moved you, ask them to setup the shared cert to work on the new server, etc. But in the end the host should be able to provide you with a shared cert for your shared server. Especially since this seems to be how it was originally setup. 

If they did give you a static IP and a cert and you have no problems, then this shared cert should work just fine for your needs. 

If it is an actual problem with your setup they should be able to tell you what that problem is or scan your site to find out, etc. Because of all the changes and forcing everyone to have a basic cert or suffer big red letter warning in the address bar.

It's better to have a shared cert that covers all your services as opposed to a cheap cert you install which typically only covers your domain name and not your email/ftp/etc. adding the wildcards to cover all this gets expensive and if your running a shopping cart and needs some guarantees and warranties it can get even more expensive. 

Hope that helps. 

I'm trying a couple site scans to see if something pops up, but I'm betting this is related to host configuration. 

Here is a report on your site showing No malicious activity or malware detected. for your index page. 

https://app.webinspector.com/public/reports/91947474 

push past the level one tech support reading from a book and request an administrator look at this and fix it or ask the host to migrate you to one of there servers that has the shared cert. etc. 

I usually have a stiff drink before I put in my call to host support, keeps my vessels from popping in my brain.
