It's very strange

and I am not at all sure what to say.
I do not believe that CNET supports secure login. Secure login uses web pages which begin with https instead of http, but I don't see that when I log in. I had to try that using Internet Explorer because I remain logged in to CNET in this Firefox browser I am using now; it remembers my login. IE doesn't, so that is a good test for me about this.
Just to be sure you know, http would be http://www.cnet.com whereas secure login with https will be https:// www.cnet.com (as shown in the address bar in the browser). I have disabled that secure link to cnet.com to make it non-clickable as it takes us nowhere.
We users would need to see a secure login for financial web sites, (banks, etc), or shopping sites, and so on, as it offers a layer of protection against identity theft in addition to strong passwords. But for non-financial sites like CNET, or for sites where no personal information is held, secure login is not required.
So, I am not at all sure why LastPass is giving you this warning.
A question or a few...
1] Are you logged in to CNET continuously, or do you log in every time you visit?
2] You say you 'don't remember exactly' the error message, but we need that. Are you saying it doesn't always show?
3] What does LastPass' Help say about this error message?
