Big Fish and McAfee Security

When I tried to go to Big Fish today with my desktop link, my McAfee Advisor popped up a warning advisory.  Just wondering if anyone else is having a problem with their security program or could it just be a McAfee thing.  I know years ago there was an issue with McAfee.  If it continues, I will probably call them to see what's the deal.

No, I didn't have a problem and I don't use McAfee.  Big Fish is doing maintenance to their site this morning.  I was able to see the home page and not much else.

I'm able to access just about everything other than the game forums.  They have been down for almost 24 hours.

Re: Big Fish and McAfee Security

I go on the forums because it's where my friend and I chat via messages. I'm on an earlier time zone than you. Yesterday morning the forum was auto directing to some dodgy site after saying one's flash player needs updating! It tried to go to calivapeking.com!! I pressed escape to stop it. Around the time the Mods usually come in they must have taken the forum down. Then today it has the maintenance page.
So my guess is that it was hacked. 

ETA: It's back now!

Re: Big Fish and McAfee Security

Thanks for your input.  I ended up doing a live chat with McAfee and did a live remote with them.  The guy added a link to BFG in trusted sites and it worked.  I have a feeling though after reading your comment, Fudge, that he just happened to do it after the main page was finally available, because it would not let me get to forums, just kept receiving the Whoa! advisory.  I remember seeing some link with Seoul something so also immediately cancelled.  Just tried everything today and it was fine.
