    I'm getting malware alerts when I try to visit fixedgearfever.com. Be careful.

    I'm getting malware alerts when I try to visit fixedgearfever.com.

    Here is what google has to say:

    What happened when Google visited this site?
    Of the 114 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 16 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2014-01-30, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2014-01-26.
    Malicious software includes 9 exploit(s). Successful infection resulted in an average of 3 new process(es) on the target machine.


    I'm not trying to steer people away from FGF to come here. I'll delete this thread once google has cleared FGF. This is more of a public service announcement.

    I've seen in the past where scammers will post phishing links and whatnot in the classified ads and in the threads. I'm believe that this may be the case here. Or something with some syndicated ad service where FGF doesn't control the ads and the ad provider is somehow sending over infected ads.

    Apparently it was being hacked:

    I regret to say the sql injection hacks on a tired old website and the requirements of my life have really made fixing things impossible right now.

    Thank you for all the fun, memories and everything - it was a wild ride, but for now ... we are on the infield.

    Sadly, The world moves on.
    With so many new other options such as Face Book Track Groups etc and forums such as ours it becomes just a labor of love.
