Malware Warnings

I bought a couple of chilli seedlings from Bunnings recently and the grower was Floriana but there was not much information on the varieties so I Googled “Floriana”.

Both “floriana.com.au” and “floriana.com.au>products” immediately displayed these warnings on Google Chrome.

I have messaged them on their Facebook page to advise them.

Thanks for the warning. I was going to make a punnet about their problem, but realised it wouldn’t be even a little funny.

Just tried floriana.com.au - no problems or warnings. (Chromium on Linux)

Latest FireFox opened it with no problems even with my noscript etc active.

Latest Opera (Chromium based) opened it with no problems even with my noscript etc active.

The new Edge (Chromium based) opened it with no problems.

Epic opened it with no problems.

Good to see you’re using NoScript - it should be mandatory.

It can be too complex for some users, particularly for some sites that are safe but use a thing like stripe for selling. Knowing what to allow when becomes a bit of a guess for some users.

True. But if everyone used it, the people who design those ludicrously complex sites would soon learn better ways.

My thoughts as well but I’m not hopeful of that outcome even in the medium term.

It is now working without any warnings with Google Chrome, as it should be some 6 days after I alerted Floriana to the problem.

I revisited the site and this time there were no warnings. So whatever the problem/s was/were it is resolved.
