Re: Antivirus

What is the message that you are receiving related to Facebook? As stated a virus engineered for QNX is extremely (9 foot tall ants with top hats) unlikely. 

Can you please indicate the error message you are seeing? It sounds like you are getting a certificate error.

Re: Antivirus

If it is just a "security connection cannot be verified" or the like, ignore it. Click on Continue.

 

It's not a virus.

Re: Antivirus

It is a certificate problem. It states: verify this certificate then states you are connecting to: graph.Facebook.com - or - apiece.Facebook.com. Then there is a drop down window with 3 choices 1) *.Facebook.com. 2) Verizon Sign, Inc. 3) Class 3 Public Primary Certificate Authority.   It keeps popping up even when I decline.  I have a Blackberry PlayBook - OS. Version 2.1.0.1088

This browser sometimes asks for you to accept a certificate, especially on free wifi. If you say Deny it will keep asking. Try  Accept if it's a mainstream website. Or do as I do and give Facebook a wide berth.
