    Yes, unfortunately the Swellinfo ad server got hacked today, and has caused a huge headache.

    This issue has been solved now, and there is no malware on the site anymore.

    Most likely there would be no harm done to any users computer. The only time there woudl be an issue is if you clicked on any ad banners - today only. If so, it might be worth running any virus scan or diagnostics you have on your computer.

    The issue has been resolved, but unfortunately is now on the Black List, so that warning message will keep coming up until we have been removed from the Black List. Hopefully soon.

    What up a headache. Hackers are the scum of the world.

    The site should be cleared off the malware list... Pleas let me know if you notice otherwise.

    Sorry for the inconvenience. You can blame those darn hackers that spend their time trying to ruin the good work of others.

    Hey dude, I'm anti-auto-virus detection program, so once I read this thread tonight, I ran a program i have to see if anything was there and it was. I don't know if it came from this site, I never clicked on any ads, but i just thought you should know that when I ran the scan, something came up in a 'registry' file or something. If this helps, I don't know, I just thought the info may help. I'll send the log file to you if you want.
