My virus scanner went off today when I tried to get to my site. It said it was blocking access to a malicious site. So, I checked the source of the site, and sure enough there was some icky script in every index file on every site associated with solonor.com that redirected users to a site that I will not mention here.

I’ve seen conflicting reports where some say it’s the ISP that’s been hacked, some say that I have a virus on my PC, and some say there’s something in Filezilla that’s stealing passwords. I’ve gone through and cleaned them all up, and I changed my FTP password to some gobbledy-gook that I’m sure to forget in another day or two. We’ll see if this mess comes back.

In any case, if your virus protection is going off when visiting solonor.com, I apologize.

    Seems fine to me. I would guess it’s something on your web host that’s been compromised. You might want to let them know, just in case!
