This morning, whenever I tried to open this site, I got a malware warning from Google saying the site was infected. It was legit, and gave all the monitoring and report details. I can open it from my iPad. Is anyone else getting this warning?

Yup, getting it on Firefox on lots of computers. There is a big thread in the R Forum about it too.

thanks guys - we have been working the issue and believe things are cleaned up. We are waiting for Google to rescan the site.

Just checked and it's still giving the warning as of 12:40 PM.

Ditto, got the "Swedespeed wants to install an add-on" and it tried redirecting / hijacking at the next Google search. I've been hit like this before, usually have to do a System Restore to get rid of it. Virus protection and spyware programs rarely catch or deny them. Crooks are always one step ahead of the programs.

My Norton Security caught it and stopped it. It said it was "Blackhole Toolkit Website 21". Boltedprior.net was the attacker URL. And the destination IP was 178.162.130.138.

It is no longer being blocked from my work computer, I need to get back to work :) and buy new antivirus software for my home computer.

So it was actually infecting IE? Firefox would throw a warning which you could ignore but then the site just acted normally, didn't load any plugins or try to install anything...

Chrome also gave some very strong warnings and details of the malware. It would allow you to open the web site if you chose to ignore the warnings, but said you would be encountering a high risk of infection if you chose to do that. I stopped there, so I have no idea if my anti-virus software would have picked it up.
