I don't know if this kind of post is allowed...however I know that there is quite a few members here that are on there also. Anybody know what's up with the HGS forum? I keeping getting a google error report saying that the forums are a reported attack page...

Hm, well it was working fine earlier, I have never had any trouble with it attacking my computer...

I hit the ignore button and it just showed my a bunch of html code.

Farmpony, I have received that message a few times now whenever I venture over there. THEN my McAfee Security pops up and says I have a virus, so my Hubby had to run a virus scan because of it and low and behold, there was a virus from that website.

I got this when I googled it again, but then I found another topic to click that took me to a page that said:

I think they just updated their site.

Nope that one is messed up too, it pops up the same attack site. Maybe someone hacked it and planted a virus, happens a lot according to my computer nerd hubby and my computer nerd housemate... I would be careful guys, best to not go there any more.

Hmm. :/

I just recently had to have all my data wiped...basically "reset" my entire system thanks to the bug I got on it. Don't especially want to go through that again...

I suggest that if you have been on any sites lately that have done that(especially HGS), you run a virus scan on your computer as well as a spybot scan. "AVG" and "Spybot Search and Destroy" are great and downloadable, it is what my 2 comp. geeks use.

This is what I just got:

I too, am on both sites. I got the message the other day, but only once and since then I have been back on and have not received the message. I did do a scan of my computer and I came up with no spyware, malware, or trojans.

I did also see that the site is down for repairs.

I tried to sign on an hour ago. My antivirus warned me that the site is currently hosting Malware and was dangerous. I signed on just long enough to post a warning about it and will not go back until the issue is resolved. I endangered myself enough to post the warning. Luckily, I have a great system that protects me very well.

I sure hope it is rectified.

I JUST tried it again and the warning is still there.



Hmmmmm....I just did a quick scan and a threat was found and eliminated. It was an info grabber. My short visit to HGS might have been a mistake. Luckily the thread never was able to activate due to antiviral program. Whew!

Hmm, I don't know then. They are saying that it is just a fake warning, but who knows. Oh, just saw that one of the mods commented that it should be fixed by tonight. Who knows though. It hasn't sent me a warning today...I hope it gets fixed for everyone soon.
