Deceptive site ahead.

I clicked on the "EA Vice President of Legal Adroitly Renames Lootboxes as 'Surprise Mechanics" article on the current forum activity  list and I get a big red page saying deceptive site ahead, back to safety page. I haven't gotten this on any of the other links and can click on the article in the main list fine without getting this warning. Any ideas as to why?
