Just looking at the link you posted but without actually clicking on it. It appears to be a web page created by a slingshot user. So unlikely to be anything wrong with the main Slingshot website.

It is fine, you can take your tinfoil hat off now. Honestly, this is why I hate Symantec and McAffee AV since they class a site as unsafe without a human actually physically checking it. Use Nod32 if you want real protection.

Unless you want protection from cryptolocker which I have to do this day never seen NOD stop, but have seen Symantec with 8 month old definitions, warn against.

We tested a bunch of collected Cyptolocker .exe's in house on our labs, Symantec was the ONLY one out of the 6 we tried, to prevent or warn.

As above (like repeating to make it clear): it's not Slingshot itself but a subdomain used to host customer's personal sites.

Why do ISPs still offer this kind of service? It's asking for trouble. Let people host things on WordPress, Google Pages and whatever else. Same for email. ISP email shouldn't exist. Shame this wasn't foreseen twenty years ago.

Yup I recall a few years ago when the ihug system crashed and a bunch of people lost work because it wasn't backed up. Just a terrible idea. It's not like there is any money to be made, vs the responsibility for it.

I think the OP should change the topic to reflect that it's slingshot subdomains.
