firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to rushfiles.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since web pages must renew their certificates with a certification authority to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk.

Re: Epic browser is blocked

Unfortunately much antivirus software has extremely poor "heuristics" which generate a lot of false positives.  This leads many to sometimes block Epic.

As long as you downloaded Epic from epicbrowser.com, you're fine and may need to white-list Epic in your antivirus software or disable your antivirus when installing Epic.

Please NEVER download Epic from any site other than Epic (that goes for all software, only download them from the official vendor).  There are lots of rogue sites that host software and bundle in malware (usually adware and other less malicious software, but nevertheless very annoying and often dangerous).
