People are getting a warning instead of Pitpass when they go there. If you click on a link for explanation, you get the following. I'm guessing (hoping) its some advertiser that's the problem. I did notice a thread about problems viewing Pitpass; maybe the problems were caused by an infaction.
What happened when Google visited this site?
Of the 2 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 1 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 09/01/2008, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 08/31/2008.
Malicious software is hosted on 2 domain(s), including viacodecright1.com, viacodecright2.com. _________________ Those who forget they're passed are doomed to repeat it.
How many more threads are we going to get on this?
As I've posted elsewhere...
Rest assured, Pitpass is 100% safe, there is no malicious software, nothing that can do any harm – as the Google ‘warning’ actually says.
A problem arose on Sunday 31 August 2008 when a third-party attempted to hack the site.
The hacker attempted to add a link to embed a page hosted elsewhere, no malicious software was actually hosted on the Pitpass site, but the embedded link would have appeared as part of the pitpass page, just like the sidebar ads.
However, we (by which I mean Chris and Phil at SysExcel) were on the case within forty minutes and no damage has been done. If you read the Google ‘warning’ it clearly states that “the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 08/31/2008”.
