    Hello Everyone,
    Just went to the Eastmall site to order some more "Stuff" and my Norton Protection program, came up indicating that the site is "Not Safe" with 27 threats found...This is something new....About 3 weeks ago, ordered from them and no problem...Does anyone know what this is about?
    Don't want to order from a place that my computer said is Unsafe....
    Later, and Enjoy the Adventure...

    There was a thread about this over on the Eastmall forum. I think it depends on what security you are using. The other thread said they were using Norton.

    I have top notch security and no threats pop up when I go to their site.

    Yes I understand it matters what protection one has, but my Norton didn't trigger any warnings a few weeks ago concerning this site, know it does...so for me, that usually means something happened these past few weeks concerning the EastMall site....Again, just wondering,,,,because I would like to order some more from them...But, will not if it is unsafe....Later...

    This is why I absolutely HATE Norton anything. It's like a 4 year old child, happy one minute, and driving you nuts with "temper tantrums" the next. My advice, can the Norton and pick up either Avast (what I use) or AVG (my "back up"). Couple that with IObit Security 360, and you should be good to go (all these programs are free BTW :))

    As for the EM site, checkout is through PP, so you should be fairly safe. If your still worried, get one of the PP Security Keys, that way you've got the extra layer of security for your financial info :)

    Nortons went downhill once it became Symantec. I canned Norton's years ago. Besides poor performance, the tentacles it buries deep into your OS is horrifying. Try removing it cleanly without editing the registry. I dare ya! :p

    Saying that "Norton have problems" is not precise, a more precise phrase is "Norton is a problem" :D:D:D:D

    And 164.000 web pages agree with me:

    My opinion of Norton a/v consumer versions is that they're worse than the malware it's supposed to protect you against. The enterprise stuff is supposed to be better but I've grown to reject anything Norton. And yes, it's a pain to completely remove from any system it's been installed on.

    Hi,

    for clarification, "27" things" wrong with a site is not even feasible for one unless the site offered downloads and or links to unsafe downloads. Or of the likes. In which eastmall has never offered.

    I handle this site myself and see absolutely no legitemant reason for this claim. May I suggest that there is possibly something on your local machine that is deleting or changing the dates on the CS's within your browser/ system.

    It is also possible that other sites that have linked to eastmall.net have expired SSL certificates, and this is what norton is picking up.

    There is only one thing that could and if there were even any issue , which is still active, that could be throwing a flag, in which is the CA

    Which allows any data transmitted between you , ans the website to be encrypted, and like i say, it is good, or we all would be getting a warning.

    rick

    Rest assured, NORTON is the Problem. Get another firewall, AV package. But I was able to remove Norton from a hard drive and it was simple. And very gratifying.1: Remove hard drive from the CPU. 2: Take large heavy object ( I used a 5 lb mall-hammer) and CRUSH the hard drive. 3:Install new hard drive then reinstall OS. Now thats how I was able to remove Norton.
