Security Check?

It's start to get on my nerves with more and more security check for some sites as I am very annoying by this. How to stop this? Anyone know?

 

I ran virus check and malware check but found nothing?

 

Is it issues at PN gateway security? Or Static IP Address issues?

Re: Security Check?

@goldenfibre It has nothing to do with PN - that site has obviously decided to introduce it's own checks to reduce 'robot' access. As you say, more sites are doing this, for exactly that reason, but some of the messages are a little ambiguous and unhelpful, to say the least.

Re: Security Check?

It kept asked me to check security check everytime I use this site: https://www.thinkbroadband.com/broadband/monitoring/quality/share/71eb837210b1d11b98c8c58acfb47dd7ac...

It say you are not secure connected verifying by cloudflare?

Re: Security Check?

I've checked by accessing both those sites without any problems or captcha checks, so it is (seemingly) a problem unique to you.

What OS and antivirus are you using?

Re: Security Check?

I have spend all night check anti virus and malware all found nothing. Windows 10 with latest up to dates. So I took SSD out and try other SSD with Linux Mint and check the same site , same things!

 

Must be plusnet gateway or static ip address misconfig?

Re: Security Check?

In that case, sorry, I can't help, but I would have expected more people to be complaining if it was a PN issue. How long has it been going on?

Given your obsessive behaviour WRT broadband perhaps cloudflare thinks you're a bot...

 

Though why don't you ask MrSaffron? Or have you been banned from TBB again?

Re: Security Check?

Strange no-one else is reporting it, and I certainly can't reproduce it.

Re: Security Check?

It is certainly something within your environment, but to be honest I would doubt it is the router - check the logs for any suspicious entries?

Re: Security Check?

All sites by digicert are ok but all sites with cloudflare are asking for security check by everytimes. I have ran test by cloudflare and come back with this result:

Firefox and Chrome:

Microsoft Edge:

Test to run check via this site: https://www.cloudflare.com/ssl/encrypted-sni/

Re: Security Check?

@goldenfibre - These prompts are usually the result of 'suspicious' activity coming from your IP address so you need to find root cause of it.
