AV threats

Back channel e-mails make it clear that lots of people are getting virus threat messages from Norton and AVG on Sailnet. Is it an advertisement perhaps? Regardless, it is a problem. I sent an e-mail to tech support two days ago with no result.

How about some help here?

Take the ads down for starters until you have it sorted.

Admin posted about this earlier today. Problem has been resolved. It was the OpenX ad management software which has been removed from the SN servers. Apparently it was Google and Internet Explorer (only) which saw the "threat". Google has been informed to revisit the site and correct their position. This may take a while mind you.

Yes, I saw it too on Mac/Firefox as well as PC/Chrome at the office. It has been resolved as mentioned above (Admin did respond on another related thread) and the site seems clear now.
