Has anyone seen this web page:?  (From the chrome history page)


The website generating the Security error is a1.helpcustomeronline.com.  I found it is located on a godaddy server in scottsdale, az.  ip is
<div class="visit-entry" style="background-image: -webkit-image-set(url(&quot;chrome://favicon/size/16@1x/http://a1.helpcustomeronline.com/cw6h6-x2200541287-oo0017/index.html&quot;) 1x, url(&quot;chrome://favicon/size/16@2x/http://a1.helpcustomeronline.com/cw6h6-x2200541287-oo0017/index.html&quot;) 2x);"><div class="title"><a href="http://a1.helpcustomeronline.com/cw6h6-x2200541287-oo0017/index.html" id="id-0" target="_top" title="*** Security Error Code 0x80070424" focus-type="title" tabindex="0">*** Security Error Code 0x80070424</a></div><div class="domain">a1.helpcustomeronline.com</div></div>
I don't have a picture because they got it on their computer and I was busy stopping it.  It wasn't hard to stop.  I stopped the google chrome process using task manager and then cleaned out the cache and history.   Malwarebytes found nothing. But there is no info that this is a bad site.
