I am a Mozilla Fire Fox user and a Norton user. Lately, I've been getting several messages from Norton about malicious domain attack 21 that have been blocked. The attacks appear to be coming from wpad.utopia.net. I submitted a case to Norton; however, they've deemed it a 'false positive'?

Is anyone else getting these attacks? I'm not aware of any way to stop someone from attacking my PC. I guess I should be thankful that Norton is doing its job! computerdeath

Thanks,

I google "wpad.utopia.net" and got a lot of hits. Most were greek to me. You might do the same.

Here is some information on that attack.

Try to not go to that website/domain - they will probably use your "visit" to start tracking you?

Thanks guys,

I just finished working with a tech from Norton. After deep system scan my computer was determined to be virus free. The tech took over control of my PC and installed additional safety measures to keep it secure. I now have the Norton Safe Search and Norton Safe Web activated.

All is well, no more malicious attack messages! thumbs_up

Thanks again,

I also use Firefox both at home and work. No issues so far. Although I have been experiencing trouble with Mozilla Thunderbird. It seems to get stuck when sending mail. The mail always gets sent, it just stalls out when copying sent mail to my sent folder. It's been doing that for a few days now. If it doesn't correct itself soon I will have to pursue getting it resolved.
More so a nuisance,not crippling yet.
