What's your idea for The Knot?


I've noticed today that every time I log onto my wedding website or theknot.com account, I am continuously getting pop-ups from my antivirus software that a "BitCoin Miner" is trying to attack my hard-drive, from your website. I would get your software people to look into that if I were you! It's not good!

    I also saw this, picked up by Symantec EndPoint. Reported as JSCoinMiner.

    Also the SSL Cert for customer service is invalid. Really hoping this isn't compromised.
