McAfee are telling me recently that this may be a dangerous site to visit as they found it exhibited one or more risky behaviors.
Is anyone else getting this or similar?  Would appreciate Administrator comments.

Hackers attacked the site a while ago and left some dodgy files on the server, but Bill seems to have got on top of it and all looks fine now. I'm not getting any warnings and I haven't noticed any odd behaviour for a few days now, so I think the site is safe. They also attacked some other sites associated with this one, so you may get some warning from those as well.

Yes The above is correct.
We have been under attack for almost 3 weeks now as has a major effect on several sites.
A lot of work trying to stay ahead of this but they have won a few times.
Right now were safe but how long I dunno
If worried until this settles run firefox with a script blocker installed ann only allow srmz to be trusted.
If something else slips in then it will block it.
TRying to stay ahead of this :)
