    OT- Geniesoft home page, a security risk?

    Hej!

    There are still some Overture users among us here, so I wonder if anyone else has had trouble going to Geniesoft's homepage recently. I was there yesterday without a problem, but when i tried to go there today, the page was flagged as an 'attack site' by Microsoft Security Essentials, which claimed there have been numerous loadings of malware by the site recently....

    is my MSE gone paranoid, or has Geniesoft been hacked?

    Anyone?

    Cheers

    I also got an alarm message from firefox, browsing from a different country than you, so i guess is not your MSE.

    The GenieSoft.com site has suffered for some time from intermittent security problems.
    I have read reports that the company hosting that website has had security problems.

    The problem has been brought to the attention of the owner of the site and GenieSoft.
    The next move is up to the site owner and the host.
