yeah just got it. Maybe the site is under attack. That won't be the first time unfortunately.

I'm getting this too.

Also, lots of redirecting to spam sites.

Must be browser agnostic, as Firefox, tagged this as malware / attack site too.

The issue will be fixed in next 24h. It is a very well known hole in the Plesk to add bunch of numbers on the end of each java script. It is not dangerous for anyone.

Hey everyone,

As Strok says, the site was compromised by a cracker who exploited a known issue in our server control panel software. The cracker then modified javascript files included in every page of the site.

We have restored the JS files and plugged the hole in the server software. We believe that should resolve the issue. We have requested Google review the site, which should remove warnings from Google search results and Chrome.

If, in 24 hours you're still getting the error, please be sure to let us know.

Sorry about this.

I too got the warnings, and am really glad the site is okay. I am still getting warnings--in fact I got one when I clicked the reply button just now (I'm using Chrome). Good to know that I can just click "proceed anyway." Thanks for all the fantastic work you guys do in running the site!
