When I go to may admin > Extensions > module page I am seeing this message:

www.opencart.com
Checking if the site connection is secure
www.opencart.com needs to review the security of your connection before proceeding.

Ray ID: 234234324...
Performance & security by Cloudflare


No idea how it was added.
I did recently install an extension. Hope it not a virus?
Anyone else seeing this or what it is about?

This is a "simple" check made by cloudflare.
Why?
Because OpenCart tries to display an advertising banner inside the modules (at the top).
Unfortunetely OpenCart is hosted by cloudflare and therefore it could happen that the checks are not successful - then you will see such messages.

I'm also seeing this. It's where an OpenCart served advert should be. I guess Cloudflare is blocking the request to www.opencart.com. One of the downsides to using Cloudflare is that the basic version is not really suitable for APIs.

Displaying such ads (and calls to OpenCart in the background) can be easely disabled.

OK. It sounds like this is something normal as a result of opencart putting an ad in that spot, and using cloudfare.

Feel better now. I thought it was some type of hack.

Thank you for all the feedback.
