Home Shop Machinist Site compromised ?
« on: February 01, 2016, 12:59:23 PM »
I'm getting dire warnings that http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/activity.php is compromised - giving me malware warnings. Is it just me or has anyone else had this.

Don't try and access it unless you are happy that your countermeasures are up to date

My AV is blocking it as well. I really don't go there anymore...

Checked it (not a member) earlier today on my phone, no problems... But on my home computer, blocked. Clicked thru, my anti-virus didn't complain (F-secure, and F-secure freedome VPN-tunnel). The owner and webhotel is working on it, seems to be a "false positive" so far

I had it too but being a maverick I went in anyway. There's a post from George explaining it's the HSM webpage not the forum.
