Could be a couple of things...

Date and time off on your PC....that'll give you similar errors
Outdated browser...but you'd probably get pop-ups or messages to update your browser along with these errors

More likely, it's the website, not a virus at all...just how they're set up. All depends on the protocol used when they set up the site
http vs https ("s" meaning secure).. https sites use encryption when exchanging information which better protects your anonymity. Not that anythings perfect, but it gives you an added layer of protection versus sites that do not use the "secure" protocol. GooglesChrome is just making a point to let you know...It costs a little more too..in case you're wondering why all sites don't go that route, Static IP, SSL certificate...

I get the same error.... Its an https: issue with the SSL certificate. Nothing has changed I am sure with the site itself.. it's just Google and industry nudging the web to use more secure sites

this is not the only site that has that not secure thing .

I think it's like bloocrab said, it is probably a Chrome thing or just separating the sites that have encryption and those who do not.
This site does not sell thru an online store like many others so no need. I would not worry, the Russians are not sneaking in

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

1984 was a warning, not a guidebook!

This sites insecurity stems from the political forum.

We don't sell anything so we don't have a store, so we don't have an SSL certificate which can be used to encrypt data traffic to and from the site and your web browser. If we sold stuff, sure it would be necessary, but we don't

I've always insisted that my bad posts in there were from hackers.
