In a message yesterday I said

"I tried to access "Corella" through two paths, but on each occasion my copy of Nortons 360 blocked the response because of a malicious cookie so I do not know what they charge.  This should be an issue for ABSA to look at as i think they have been well and truly hacked!"

I have subsequently been advised by Robin Hide that he had been able to get into the Corella page with no problem.  Through a series of tests it appears that the problem doesn't arise at all for Robin, and for me only when my copy of Nortons 360 meets access to Corella through Google.  The only difference between success and a malware warning appears to be the anti-virus software (Robin uses an ANU based product).  I thus conclude that my version of Nortons 360 is the problem rather than the ABSA website.
