I apparently used ONE browser - Firefox - which is the one that gave me the 
 "attack page" warning.

THEN, I apparently used IE afterward to do, and got no 


If I go to FIREFOX and try to browse to I DO get 
this "attack page" warning. I have no idea what that means, if it's a 
"false positive" or what. I'll try to do a little research and figure out 
where the "attack page" warning is coming from.

BTW, I just had an interesting experience related to ENG-TIPS.

I typed just "" and got a pop-up (I presume from our firewall) 
that read as follows:

          Reported Attack Page!

          This web page at has been reported as an attack page 
 and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

          Attack pages try to install programs that steal private 
information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system. 
Some attack pages intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are 
compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.

However, note that typing "" works just fine.

Just thought I'd put that out there just in case there might be some here 
with less than rigid security set up for browsing the WWW.
