Hi Paul,

 

Thanks for the heads up.  We're well aware of this however, for 2 weeks now have been working hard to clear it and have had to hire numerous security professionals as well.

 

The problem turned out to be a user who signed up on our forums with a "spammy" name that starts with "via" (full term withheld to prevent any problems on AVSIM).  The list of new users is shown on our forum site home page.

 

Then, according to our security advisors, we were reported by a google user which activated our "flag".

 

We can absolutely confirm that there is no hack or security/malware issues at any of our sites.
