    Lightbulb Does adding a web site to the exception list create a potential security vulnerabilit

    welcome to this thread,
    how are you everybody?


    if i gave a web site a trusted status by entering the web site address in the exception list, can that site now look at and examine all the files on my computer and add/delete and change files on my computer?


    thanks,
