I'd been meaning to ask why my anti-virus trips on these pages. Luckily it prevents the trojan from loading so I haven't thought twice other than considering contacting the mods.
SO now Google blocks this site and my browser is giving me an additional warning on accessing this site.
Mods? Can you pressure your host to scrutinize the advertisers and get rid of the viruses? I'd hate to see it bring the site down.

We're looking into it right now. You're correct - something has been loaded into some part of the site. Be careful.

If any member has the ability to get into their internet protection software and look at logs, please do so and make careful note of just when your systems began to detect abnormal amounts of intrusion hits - attempted malware downloads or the like - and post meaningful results here.

If you are running a late Windows OS (Vista, 7) you might want to get off the Internet, do a Windows Defender update (in Control Panel) and perform a full Defender scan.

Where it says "2132 pages we tested....13 pages resulted" used to say "1800 pages.....2 pages resulted" earlier this morning. Tapatalk works fine, though. Good luck.

You don't actually need tapatalk anymore. There is a native Cadillac forum app.

The virus warning is gone today. Back to normal. Mods, did y'all find the trojan?
