    Security check/ captcha

    Hello,
    starting today if i visit mmo-champ i get this security check/ captcha:



    I ran a virus scan that came up with nothing.
    Im kind of worried and annoyed at the same time

    Anyone else getting this?

    Think it strikes again due to the influx of spam. Can't be sure, I haven't had one yet.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    It has little with *your* pc or viruses on it and a lot about sharing the same ip pool from your isp with random spambots and whatnot. I do get it from time to time without doing anything unusual or wrong.

    It means Cloudfare thinks your IP Address has done shady stuff in the past.

    It's just a security check to make sure you're not a bot.

    I am a Curse employee that uses a company VPN and I still have to go through a "wait 30 seconds while we make sure you're not malicious" thing with Cloudflare on Curse sites.

    And for every few y'all see, there's a few hundred you don't because the filter catches them.

    If you're getting it that often, you might have some issue with your cache where it is sending you back in a looop? I dunno, try clearning your browser cache/cookies and making sure you check 'keep me logged in' on browser and see if that helps?
