In the last couple of hours I've taken more steps to strengthen this site against hackers, but there will always be vulnerabilities that are harder to catch - basically, legions of hackers in poor countries can make money by finding new holes in code, therefore they always will.

If you get a virus/trojan/etc. warning from this or any of my sites please let me know immediately. Give me as many details as possible, either copy and paste text or with a screenshot of the details of the warning.

I will always try my best to keep this place secure, but there's only so much that can be done by myself and the team here. If you're not running any anti-malware, anti-virus, or a firewall then I highly recommend getting at the very least the Windows security software (which is a lot better than it used to be):

And get your browser vulnerabilities patched with Spybot:

Thanks for your help and patience. If anything comes up then please let me know ASAP!

After realising that there's no where online I'd host a screenshot of the AVG threat, I messaged it to you on fb, Mata.
It was from the search newposts page.
