    Default "This site may be hacked!" Message...

    Look, I know this site is trustworthy and doesn't contain anything that would destroy my computer, but you guys may need to fix this. I am not saying it is horrible or anything, but I can see the message show up on Google's results and the warning blares very loudly. I am finding it a little difficult to access the site some occasions, but I can still log in, relatively, with ease.

    Look, just saying you might need to check out the database, run a diagnostic or whatever is going on with the site. Maybe there's nothing wrong with it at all, it's just perceived as malware or such because of an update (some site changes). My software sometimes does that too when it recieves an update, but 9/10 it's very, very rare.

    Yeah, I pointed this out a couple months ago and it hasn't stopped since. However, I get more false warnings about viruses than I do real viruses in general so I doubt SCL needs to do anything. Something would have been noticed.



    Rest In Peace, Old Friend.

    yes, but it shows up in Google's database in their search matrix when I browsed it... That's why I said something.

    Oh no, my sensitive bank account information and posting history!

    I hope I'm not one day cleaned out or disgraced Milo-style from this!



    Rest In Peace, Old Friend.

    I noticed that when I try to visit the site through google search I am redirected by a url hijacker to a filehosting site which tells me the file hosted has been removed. Apparently the site was infected with malware designed to download more malware onto the user's computer, but since the hoster removed the download the malware has become harmless but annoying.
