While browsing different sites on internet people frequently facing one big issue. While we are expecting the web page, one warning message displaying on the screen like this:
Attention Required! One more step. Please complete the security check to access www.abc.com”
People are becoming panic after reading this. They are suspecting that there may be a viral infection or something else happened in their system. To some degree that is true. Here are the exact reasons for the warning message.
Nowadays DDoS attacks on the websites are rising. Therefore every site is focusing more on the site’s security. CDN (Content Delivery Network) providers like CloudFlare are offering DDoS protection services to the websites. If the website we are visiting implemented this mechanism, more likely we may come across the above warning.
But not always this happens. If the CloudFlare CDN service identifies our IP address as the suspected one, then it asks us to complete the Captcha Verification to prevent the DDoS attacks.
Because of various reasons, our public IP may become suspectable. There might be a malware infection on our computer which uses our computer like botnet to make DDoS attacks on various sites unknowingly. If that is the case, your public IP will be marked as dangerous IP on the internet. It indirectly leads to the above security checks while browsing the internet.
First of all, check your computer with any powerful antivirus software for malware infections and clean unnecessary junk files. In few cases using the alternative browser help us to overcome the issue temporarily.
Sometimes there might be a problem with the ISP (Internet Service Provider) like Airtel, BSNL, Act Fiber you are using. If everything is clean on your computer, you have to ask your ISP to check if the IP or subnet mask is blacklisted. As an Act Fiber customer living in Hyderabad and maintaining my computer in perfect condition, I never faced the issue. So by correcting the above reasons, you can also get rid of the problem.
