    I just took a peek and it was OK. Usually it helps if we know Mac or PC so others may help check. Gary

    Yes, I just got the following from Norton Anti-Virus:

    Vulnerability Blocked: Malicious Java Download 8

    I use a Mac running Snow Leopard and Safari 5.1.7.

    I'm getting a warning with Avast. I'm a PC running IE. Hopefully the website gurus will figure this out.

    Threat warning from AVG when trying to load the MOA Homepage through Internet Explorer.

    Went through Google: MOA Marketplace, got in.

    Deleted my Homepage Bookmark, now no problem!

    A lot of time this is due to an offsite ad server serving a malicious ad. The MOA site is now on at least one major Internet blacklist (aka the one used at my place of employment). This is not going to be fun to clean up.

    EDIT - Nice, looks like it is already unblacklisted

    It still looks OK here. It would be interesting to see if the notifications on this, for the both of you, went away with a cookie-history cleaning. Your computer could be retaining the "old" info. OM

    emptied it all but still get ..................... Trojan.JS.Redirector.ns.............

    can still sneak in the backdoor but tends to be a bit of a PITA. Oh well, will keep looking for an answer in this computer. Funny how different folks are getting it though. - Bob
