    CreditCard Request

    Anyone know why this site would request credit card information as soon as I log in and continues the entire time I am logged into the site. My firewall picks up the request. I seldom have this problem with any other site.

    Thanks,

    Part of the issue is my internet security and settings. but I have found out since the first post that it has to do with security on the site. I will have to make changes in how information is stored on my system to keep this from happening.

    Thanks for responding.

    Run ad-aware or spybot. Sounds like you have some un-wanted adware applications on your puter.

    How would your firewall know the site is requesting CREDIT CARD info? Are you sure the site isn't trying to set a cookie and your fire wall is noticing that?

    A basic firewall simply monitors traffic flow and has no idea the content of the request.

    My firewall may not be the correct way of putting it, but my security shows this site requesting informantion that it beleives is a request for credit card informantion. It does not happen on all the computers I use, only one. It may be some of the settings I have on the security for that one computer.

    Thanks,
