When I went to log on this morning I got a security warning from Chrome that MT's security was at risk...

couldn't verify some security document...  I've run into this a few times before on other sites.

Now I just noticed the red bar across the https in the address bar at the top of the page.

Is it my Chrome acting up or is this something that just happened?

I'm on a PC with Windows 7 and running Chrome!

I just checked on Firefox and the https:// doesn't even show up there...

never noticed that before.

I would guess that the MT security certificate expired. 

I did not realize that MT had a secure protocol available so I my bookmark is to the http site.

I get it regularly on my ancient browser.  I believe it has to do with the ads, not the site.  I ignore it.  If it was an issue my norton would flag it.  It don't.

I get a pop up once a day when I sign into Monroe Talks. .its a survey about Toledo's Buckeye Cablevision offering $50-$100 items if you give them your credit card to pay the freight of about a $1.
Buckeye says it's a scam.
I only see it when going to Monroe Talks.

But mine is from Charter...   otherwise all the same...   interesting :-\ :-\ :-\

Same here, but mine are usually Asian Massage Parlors, or some site where supposedly a male can hook up with some hot looking MILF's!

The warning lasted a couple of days and then disappeared...   no problem since then.

I get it ocassionally (got it this morning) again.  I believe it's not MT but rather the certificates on the pop up ads.  Even if the ads are blocked, the sertificate if expired will show in your screen.
