My virus checker throws up a warning about not being able to validate the site's certificate. It says it comes from *.ning.com, which looks a bit odd to me.

The checker says that hackers may be diverting it and stealing information, so won't let me onto pages when I click e.g. on the top 7 threads.

Can you confirm that everything is OK and that my virus checker is just being a bit too conscientious? 

Thanks!

Ning is the platform this site is built on; it's sort of like Wordpress for forums/social networks.  Nothing shady.

That is very strange. I will report this to Ning. What is your anti-virus software?

Aha! The name was unfamiliar.

I have just changed to Avast anti-virus on my PC. It may just be that I need to actively allow it to approve the site. No issues on my Macbook.

Sometimes validation certificates go out of date, and the anti-virus flags that up as well.

Thanks.
