Just clicked on Jenny's link, and it did not give me that message. I have Avast.

Probably something that was already in your Internet cache, doing a delayed reaction thing.
Wadjet Eye doesn't use a redirect.
You might want to scan your computer and delete your Internet cache.
The sneaky stuff installs itself, then does nothing for a while, then resurfaces to redirect you when you try to go to a valid Internet site.
So it's not like Norton is wrong -- it's something that took over your browser so it's not going to the site you told it to go to.

EDIT (Feb 14, 2016) -- since oldbroad isn't the only one who gets this message, that means the problem is less likely to be from something in cache (or Flash cache) and more likely to be something Norton doesn't like about the site itself.

Until we know for sure that this is a false alarm, I wouldn't recommend anyone visit the Wadjet Eye website. "Nuclear Exploit Kit Redirect 4" is some bad stuff and can be polymorphic (polymorphic infections can't be detected by signature).

It must be Norton only. I got the same message. Ugh!
Will clear cache.

Didn't work. Got the same message.

How exactly do I clear my cache? I looked in How to for Dummies but I guess I'm too dumb for that. It didn't help me.

The Norton scan and MalwareBytes scans were clean.

OK, found it by googling. Did it. Still get the Norton block.

Did you delete Flash cookies and cache?
They are in a different place from regular Internet cache and cookies.
Nuclear Exploit Kit Redirect 4 often attacks through Flash.
I have Flash disabled by default, and I'm not seeing any message.

EDIT --

Those of you who are getting the warning, do you also get it when you go to Google's cache of the Wadjet Eye website at EDITED.

I see that Google cache that you linked to.
My Flash is "never activate".

Why don't I move the tech questions to glitches.
Give me a few minutes and I will do that.

Do you get the Norton warning with Google's cache of the Wadjet Eye website?

No - didn't get warning on Google Cache but I did get the warning when I clicked the "current page" link of the WadjetEye games main page on that Google page.

BTW - ran Malwarebytes also. Clear...

I'd be interested to know whether anyone who doesn't have Norton is getting the warning. According to Norton/Symantec, Nuclear Exploit Kit Redirect 4 is bad
https://www.symantec.com/security_response/attacksignatures/detail.jsp?asid=26991

Nuclear Exploit Kit Redirect 4 is polymorphic and changes its signature, making it much more difficult for anti-malware programs to detect (unless it's caught in the act, like while you're browsing).

I still don't think the problem is at Wadjet Eye -- but it might be coming through scripting in an ad (possibly the Facebook ad at Wadjet Eye).
