I got a big red screen last night telling me that LocostUSA was a known Attack Site.

I posted this on the FB page because I had no other way to notify anyone. I notice that someone else got that as well.

I got through this morning but I am on another computer and it was already logged in to the site.

I too had a red warning screen. Something about Malware on the site.

Site owners must be late on the vig.

I told them not to borrow from the Russians!

Well...it's as safe as it was last week and last year. But it seems we're on Google's poop list as of this week, as far as I can tell. So, you can go directly to the site with a URL like http://locostusa.com/forums/ and you should reach it successfully, as opposed to a Google search result. But I believe other malware scanners use the same source data or similar heuristics, so some folks may still be blocked.

The aggravating thing is that I have been through Google's webmaster tools, and not found anything that explicitly names what the vulnerability/issue is. Although I'm pretty sure I know what it is, I'd really like to know what *they* think it is, so I can fix everything at once.

I just bypassed the warning screen and came in any way. I was worried that someone had uploaded a file that was triggering that.

EDIT: I just realized that the icon for Locost in my Favorites list is now the red warning circle

"Visiting this site may be harmful"

Homemade car builders are such a plague on society that we're now labelled malicious. ;)

I'll start flying the jolly roger above the garage.

My AVG SW sees a HTLM/Framer virus. I'm only able to post via my phone.

It's a virus that inserts itself into header.php files it appears.

Software updated. We'll see if this gets us whitelisted.

Google claims it will take a few days to get reviewed again.

Google?
Now THAT is an attack site!

I've avoided them for a long time now since I actually do care a bit about my privacy.
