There's a modaco site issue area for reports like this. How do you think the staff are going to find this here?

Since google bots randomly browse pages and download attachments (I believe), it might've downloaded an intrusive bootloader or root unlocker, hence causing the trojan warning.

Saying this since every unlocker I've downloaded had a trojan warning (it does have a pretty trojan-like behaviour, gaining control of a device).

I see this is now fixed, but it's a scarey reminder of just how much Google controls the internet. I use Firefox, and until this, I never realised that Mozilla are dependent on Google's blacklisting system which appears to be built in to the browser, even on direct bookmarked links. Any ideas on how one eliminates this, other than just unclicking the option to check sites? There are no alternative sources?

I'm still getting the red 'reported attack page' every time i come on the site.Not straight away,just at some random time when browsing the site,usually after using the back page arrow.
More worryingly i got a 'your computer is infected' bogus scare page with the assosiated 'click here to fix it' bullshit scam this morning.Stupidly,i closed the browser before noting where the scam link redirected too.If it happens again i'll try and get more info for you.

Perhaps clearing your cache & cookies will help with the warning coming up.
