I'm kinda new to this whole spyware/malware removal thing. I've had Spybot and Ad-Aware for a long time, and ran them religiously, but I still ended up with an about:blank hijack.

Anyway, that's not the reason for my post. I've been trying to access the SpywareInfo home page for a few days now, and it comes up as "The page cannot be displayed." Is the site going to be fixed soon? Or is it just me having problems with it? Thanks!

I've been having the same problems too. According to another thread, the site is under attack.

If you go directly to the forums here (via www.spywareinfoforum.com), you'll get in with no problem.

GD Web Terrorists!

I guess posting Version 1.98 on a mirror site would end up having that site attacked as well huh?

And I'm pretty certain we _all_ know which group is doing it, don't we?
Signature file is under revision. This will be back shortly.

Well, I have been experiencing the same problem very often in the last two weeks... It seems that some people will never get the message... and stop being bad! :evilgrin:

Tuxedo Jack, I am not sure which group is doing this... Can you help us guess who that is...? I am really curious... Curiosity killed the cat...

Thanks! :bounce:
