Default Mozilla Firefox

I don't know if anyone else is having a problem,but everytime I try to get on this site using Firefox,it says this website is a reported attack site and will not even let me log in,I had to use Internet Explorer to log in.Just thought someone should know,maybe its just on my end,I don't know.

in Mozilla Firefox try clicking on the help file and Checking for updates.
I always use IE to access the DHC site but I just signed in with Mozilla firefox and had no problems at all.

I had to uncheck the box in their security part in their browser to accept reported attack sites before it would allow me to access this site using their browser.I have used Firefox for a few years and never had this happen to me on this site.I will just use IE from now on.

Open ads dropped the security ball!! That is a software that we use that rotates
the banners in the top right corner of each page that you see loaded. The virus was coming in on the ads that use javascript. So any time you loaded a page with that particular type ad you had a chance of your computer becoming infected.

You need to scan your computer with an updated virus scanner.

I received no virus from this on my home pc, but my brother spent all day cleaning all the junk off of his.

Google webmasters contacted us by email and we shut down the ads being shown in the top right hand corner of our site immediantly.

Mozzila is a google based company. That is why it would not load the site. Any time this happens DO NOT disable your security settings or access the site through IE.

Google caught on to the hack job and placed a warning on our site for viewers benefit. They did not remove the warning until we cleaned it off and had their tech guys verify that we were good to go.

Even if you did not get a virus from our site it is very important that you scan your computer anyway. Millions of websites use the open ads software. If you didnt pick it up here you could have gotten if from somewhere else.

I apologize for the inconveniece.

Anyone up for a hunting trip. Im taking my 30-06 and going hunting for hackers that have nothing better in life than to screw with the working man.
