    I'm getting a page showing this warning when viewing a website in Safari. Doesn't happen in any other browser.

    The site is owned by a business that I know to be legitimate.

    Anyone else seen this?

    The site itself may be legitimate, but it's also possible their site has been compromised by a hacker. If you manage to get around the warning I'd suggest surfing the site with JavaScript disabled and don't download any files until the warning has been resolved.
