Problem with other dev site?

before I go any futher..

DO NOT GO TO THE SITE I'M JUST ABOUT TO MENTION, UNLESS YOU KNOW IT'S OK TO DO SO.

Right then, is anyone having problems getting into iphonedevsdk? I tried getting into it this morning and instantly got a "web page warning msg" and now google is reporting them as being a site that might "harm your computer" everything was fine last night, I was wondering if anyone else is having an issue with them?

Probably someone posted a bad link on this forum or they've been hacked and now it has been black listed. This happens a lot but fortunately they can ask google to re-evaluate the site once it has been clean up.

Yeah, even trusted websites can suddenly be hit with a virus. I was using imageshack regularly for years, then all of a sudden (about 1.5 years ago) chrome gave me a warning. I ignored it because I'd been on just a few hours before and got hit with a nasty virus. Had to reformat my PC.

It's not the first time either.
Happened 3-4 times last year.

is attacking the website, but im
just speculating here

iphonedevsdk is often flag like this.
sometimes when I didn't have my daily drug of forum post, I just ignore the message and hope that my antivirus will protect me..

Nothing happen to my computer... yet.

Got the warning too, got in anyway, nothing has happened so far. Sounds safe.

Happens a lot to that site. Given that nearly all the people that visit that site probably have ITC accounts (if not access their bank accounts as well), it's a goldmine for hackers to place trojans. I will only visit that site every once in a while on a PC that I don't use for anything else.
