Suspicious Connection Blocked

I just started getting this today from my antivirus Bitdefender when I connect to MMORPG.com, any idea as to why? Never had an issue before and have had Bitdefender for awhile.


"Suspicious connection blocked
now
Feature:
Online Threat Prevention
chrome.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to www.radwarebotmanager.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since websites must renew their certificates with a certification authority to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk."

    Might be helpful if you post the exact page URL that causes it. Is it at the base URL/site, a post, the forums, etc. Your Browser and version might be helpful. It looks like you're using Chrome.

    I haven't seen that in Firefox, but I also use Cloudflare DNS and Ublock Origin. I don't use a third party malware service either, but Win Defender hasn't barked at me.

    bitdefender is blocking www.radwarebotmanager.com due to it having an expired cert, nothing much to worry about I think.  Just one of the spam adsite being blocked or somesuch.

    BTW I have bitdefender and it blocking that site too for me on firefox when I try to go to it. 

    I'm not getting this message when coming to mmorpg.com though but then I have ABP and UblockOrigin  so most of that crap is already being blocked.

    A bot management program designed to let their money making schemes bot away but to thwart potential bot hackers.
    They didn't update their certificate.

    We just had a  W10 update.Ok not at home,way too difficult to type/see like this,used to big screen.

    Its not really a page url I am getting it is a pop up from bitdefender saying it blocked a suspicious connection and when I go to it for more info the message I originally posted appears. I only get it on this site but only since today.

    So probably something from the recent windows 10 update, thank you.

    Thanks for the info. This makes sense to me.
