    I have KIS 2017 installed. Few weeks ago, I noticed when I visit Amazon site a pop up comes up from KIS 2017 about cloudfront.net and gives me the option to discontinue or continue the site. I just discontinue.

    What is it and how can I make sure it doesn't come up.

    Thanks

    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    Thank you both.

    I have tried the link and it doesn't say I have 'cloudfront.net'. But when I go to Amazon site, it comes up with 'cloudfront.net'.

    To make things simple, there is problem:

    Application - Google Chrome
    URL - g-ecx.images-amazon.com

    Reason - Disconnect or Continue (I just disconnect)

    Any help?

    Thanks

    Do you have an adblocker? If not install uBlock Origin and see if it stops.

    g-ecx.images-amazon.com seems to be the site that Amazon use to store product images.

    It also seems that CloudFront is an Amazon content delivery network.

    It sounds to me like a false positive that you'd need to raise with the antivirus provider, unless it is a specific file on the server that has some malware or a pup in it..
