Norton Internet Security malicious warning message

Some people using Norton Internet Security have reported being blocked when they attempt to access their Wild Apricot site. They get a warning message about accessing malicious site. We had some people opening new Wild Apricot accounts and trying to usу them for 'phishing'.

Instead of putting the malicious warning message on those specific sites only (these sites have already been taken down), Norton is putting the warning message on ALL Wild Apricot sites. We have since contacted Norton to report the error on their part and we are now waiting for them to remove this warning on our sites. We will let you know as soon as this is resolved.

For now users can either disable Norton altogether, or use a different computer / browser without Norton installed.

        The issue has now been fixed. Norton whitelisted WA sites at approximately 2:49am EST.
        We asked Norton to contact us first whenever they have any concerns about any Wild Apricot hosted sites. Hopefully we will not run into something like this again in the future.
        Thank you for your patience and understanding.
