Default Virus on the main page?

Google says it's this is an attack site.

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language…they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.

Thank you, Arhu, for disabling the ads. I did apparently catch something. However, after a few restarts and a return to the defaults settings for Internet Explorer as well as removing all passwords etc. it seems fine now.

Incidentally, Gameboomers and the Mystery Manor Site have also been the target for attacks by hackers, it seems.
Another reason to install Avast, free and superior + it has gaming mode if you want it to be quiet when it blocks stuff and updates itself.

you should consider trying to install those email accounts for such cases.
At the top of the page in the Contact tab there is a 'Contact us' option.

I think your ads have been hacked again. I got a virus warning on the front page. The GOG ad describes a spring 50% off sale. Clearly it's old and incorrect.

The ads are old due to some incorrect setting on my part. There should be no virus warnings anymore though as everything has been cleared on this side.
I'll disable them again though and check again.

Note, I got the warning on a OS X under Safari.

Now, I don't get the virus message.

No wonder, since the ads are turned off now.

Looks like I missed something somewhere???

Bart and Corwin should just admit that when it gets down to it, I will have the final say.

Hey, someone agrees with you, count your blessings
We banned him before this could get out of control…

Believe me, I will take what I can get.
After dealing with Corwin every Friday in DDO anyone agreeing with me is a change of pace.
