Very odd Captcha from SiteLock; does it mean anything?
Today, on one of my sites protected by SiteLock, I got a bizarre captcha when I tried to access it, reading “V1 SHUTDOWN On 2018/03/01”. I also got an advisory that I can opt-out of the warning, and thar getting means that SiteLock has detected the symptoms of possible botware or malware on your computer. I do get intercepted occasionally by SiteLock normally.
Trend Micro virus scans never find anything, and this happens once in a while, but I’ve never gotten a captcha message like this.
Maybe it has to do with a Google anti-spam service like this.
