    I just opened Glumtree in FF now and it appears fine .. no attack page warning.

    Maybe you browsed to a particular section last time where an attack thingidoodle (ad or script or something) was waiting to pounce?

    Dunno .. but as I'm looking at it, and a couple of saved ads I had bookmarked .. I have no problem at my end.

    I'm using FF v30.0

    Ahhhhh! replied too quickly.

    I generally don't browse GT all that much .. I had a couple of items marked and saved as bookmarks.

    Clicked on them and opened in new tabs each and all was fine.
    Within those tabs(of which I now had three gumtree main page, and one of each of my bookmarks) I went back to the borwse for ads tab up on their toolbar and then I got the same attack page warning.

    (probably a cache thingy on my end .. which didn't reveal the warning until I tried a newly created page or something).

    Errrrr .. for now, I'd just stay away(just in case)

    Also weird!!

    Safebrowsing website info re Gumtree
    This site is what I believe is used for firefox's security warnings and the basic premise as of the 27-06-2014 is that they scanned 7114 pages on the GT site and fond nothing.

    Oh well, one only has to look at the owners of G/tree to find out that they probably spend slightly less on security ( = in all probability $0.00 ) for their free site than they do on their own fraud ridden paysite ---
