Suspected Virus/Phishing Site

Hi touch arcade.

I came across a site today, while trawling google for any mention of my game. It seems to contain an up-to-date replica of the TA site, presumably by proxy.

But when I clicked a link on it Chrome started downloading a very suspicious file called "Product2327_Distribution2402_Partner8066.exe" .

My anti-virus didn't think anything of it, but I'd guess it's a virus. Deleted it straight away.

The site is at, obviously I don't recommend going there:
http :// toucharcade [dot] macfansforum [dot] com

Just a heads up!

Yeah there's tons of these Google spam sites out there. Not a whole lot we can do about 'em. :-\
