Malwarebytes flags BG for phishing and even when logged in in I get forbidden when trying to post. Just me?

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access this resource.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


Well this worked but if I try to qoute no joy, no idea.Any ideas or advice, could be a glitch with malwarebytes but I really don't want to turn off my anti virus software and it's only just started happening.

Techie bods?

It certainly doesn't look like you are flagging anything at the BG end. It might just be malwarebytes. I am not familiar with that.

You're showing up in the server's error log. It specifically mentions "Matched phrase ..." and a specific site which I can't mention here or I get the same error. Let me do a little homework and get back to you.

It seems that our web server prohibits any reference to the site "img bb dot com." I shall be pursuing this with our hosting service forthwith.

Thats strange, I posted a photo upped there not that long ago and I know at least 3 others here use the same image host.

Thanks for looking into the situation.

Any ideas on the phishing flag from malwarebytes?

The img.bb problem was caused by a particular rule in the Apache webserver's ModSecurity module. I expect these rules come from a service to which CanSpace subscribes, so it's not unreasonable to expect the occasional faulty rule to sneak in. Everyone please let us know if something like this happens again.

As for MalwareBytes, I see nothing in the logs, so without more information I refuse to even speculate.
