Hello SLK55er,

BenzInsider.com has been hacked yesterday, which is why Google has blacklisted us. We've managed to remove all the infected content from the server and are now working on restoring the site. We're still looking through and making sure nothing else is infected

We're not quite sure how it happened, but we are working with our hosting provider in figuring that out.

For anyone visiting the site, there is no malware or viruses on the site, nor can you get infected by just visiting the site. The only infected parts of the site were the backend files, which we have now removed.

The site might act or look weird in the next few days until we resolve everything. Hope you guys understand.

Thanks
