for the past week i ha en't been able to access fff.net due to cisco claiming there is a malware threat at this site.
i normally use computers at the public libraery, and they have all blocked it, and also my laptop on their network got blocked. the computers the librarians use gets through.

anybody else had this problem?

No, but a few months back almost every site I visited triggered a malware alert from my Avast anti-virus program. Even CNN.com.

Turns out my Steam account was installing something called AwesomiumProcess. After ending that process, the problem went away. I don't use Steam much anymore but when I do I always check to see if that process is back. No returns so far.

I look in here every day, sometimes more than once. I still have not experience any problem like you describe.

I have, sometimes it takes several tries to accomplish a login. It's a pain in the ass and has been going on for at least a month. I don't think its a virus. I think it has more to do with browser updates and this site being behind the times. That's just a guess though.

It is the computers at the Public Libraries, all branches. They use windows and I select Firefox so that it works since they don't allow Opera. The same problem occurs even with non-working products like Internet Explorer;

The computers used by the librarians are able access the site without problem.

Update.
This problem did persist, I think at least through December.

Now it is not a problem anymore. I have been accessing this site through the Public Library network again for the past week.
The Library PCs do seem to have new software, so perhaps that has resolved the issue.
I don't know if anything here has changed.

Just wanted to let you know the result.
