    I guess thats the right term, and I guess this is the right place to ask.

    The last couple of times I opened Glocktalk, I received a Web Site Certification request popup concerning a site called peosoldier.army.mil

    I chose not to accept the certification and connect to the website in question...

    Anyon else getting this? Should I be concerned..?

    I got it 2 times.I didn't read where it was from.I didn't accept it.I thought it was from a link on the thread I was reading.Like one of the pistures or something.Maybe it's one of the ads on GT.

    It's in this thread. Blame gruntmedic. It's not phishing though.

    Phishing is when someone pretending to be ebay or your bank sends you an email asking for data relating to your account.
