Anyone else getting "BlackHole Toolkit web attack" from the newtek homepage? Just thought I'd let you guys know. Might be nothing.

Well, avast just went bonkers when I went there so seems to be an issue at present.

Or perhaps it only attacks people from Manchester?

The main page results in Kaspersky listing a Trojan download attempt, blocks it. I've already email customer services and tech support regarding the error. I have a bookmark to the forums and don't get the error. Tried to go directly to the Lightwave page as a test to read the newsletter and it reports the trojan from there as well. Think I'll stick with the direct bookmark.

@snosrap my mate at work said the exact same thing. Virus makers need to get lives. But as South Park once said, "How do you kill something with no life?"

So any word on if this is fixed?

Last I heard was yesterday morning, but MIS/IT had been investigating it since the previous day by then, was continuing, not found any actual problem at that time. My virus software here doesn't report an issue, either. It may be a false positive, don't know, sorry.

Just so you know, I used my NT Main Page bookmark link and had no issues. My AV software is Avast.
