    I've been going to a new fourm (forum.ih8mud.com) and so far twice this site has sent me an "ICC Profile TagData Overflow" attack according to Norton. Norton also says its a high risk. So, after the attack Norton blocks the IP address and I can't get back on the site. Anyone know what this attack is? And or why it's happening?

    XP with IE. I'll be surfing for a while and then it will happen. Strange

    QFT. I just visited the site with no problem.

    I suggest trying another browser.

    Norton is a good product. It's safe to say it's not overreacting to the threat, I've never seen it do so. Try using Firefox for a while and see if the problem goes away. If it doesn't, just fuck it and stop going to that website.

    Norton = the shitty shit possible. their products are pure crap. they are unstable, resource hogs, have slow updates, and cause nothing but problems.

    Check your hosts file. The only thing in it should be computers on your local domain and your loopback address. 172.x.x.x
