I've notified the webmaster but it seems nothing has been done. Google says W124 forums infected.

All I know is the powers that be are supposed to be working with Google to resolve this issue. Don't know why it's taking so long.

more specifically, it says a page on the w124 section references malware on host 87.248.180.0 ... this is hard to search for, because the link probably references a hostname that resolves to that IP

it is getting old going through that chrome warning every time I visit.

You have gone to the forum with no ill effects? I have stayed away.

AutoGuide admin is very aware of this problem and Google has assigned the case to one of their tech specialist. No one I am aware of has been infected in any way. The problem also doesn't impact every forum member. I haven't received any malware notifications. Others have found the threat notice on Firefox, chrome and Windows 10.

As soon as the problem is resolved, I'll let the forum know.

No block this morning using Firefox. It is concerning though.

Thanks
