It seems like all these spammers are really becoming a nonsense for our site! hot smiley angry smiley sad smiley

When I wanted to open up the site, I got the following warning with links to these "reasons":

Thank you for the update.

I think we need the webmaster to look into this.

It will be nice if we can get advice on what to do if we were affected by the hack. Should we click "ignore this warning" or use other browsers that are not infected (Firefox in both my linux and windows partions seems to be infected even though I was on linux when I clicked on the link).

It has been resolved.

Small discrepancy between Unisa code and Osprey as it relates to the new Unisa template which was implemented last month. There was never any danger of malware being served by Osprey. Fixed now. I am not too impressed with the way Google marked Osprey.... they do not know everything...
