Ad causing financial websites to be blocked?

I am on an Mac version 10.13.6 with F-Secure Safe Version 17.7 


I have been trying to access several banking websites (Merriyl Edge, Vanguard, TD Ameritrade) and have been getting a "Harmful web site blocked" warning while in firefox and chrome with the same website warning:

Interestingly the warning is not triggered in Safari (F-secure extension installed). Is this something I should be concerned about?


  • Yeah, you so right, most times it's good to clear cookies, after all actions towards correcting this anomally is effected.


    But definitely, it is sure going to happen once in a while, because the web is already large. And new things keep coming into web. Ad causing financial web blocked is a serious issue and  Nasty C music

    Hi Sethu,

    I submitted the link via the website and was told it was not a malicious website; the issue was subsequently fixed. 


    However the issue has recurred again about a week later (same link), and I resubmitted the link for analysis. Per customer service it is not a malicious link, and am currently working with them to fix the issue. 


    Thank you for your help.
