    When I go to this site (, in the status bar, it keeps saying something about I did a Google search on the domain name and went to the News section and appears to be an issue with a site that has bad files to do with the site. I tried going to the site on both my Mac and PC and get the samething. I think it something on the site's end. Here's a link to the news article I got from Google. So I'm guessing that some sites, including this particular one, have some files are their server that are hindered by this porn site :confused:

    Anybody else getting this in their status bar? I was getting a little worried as I first noticed this thing on my Mac with IE an Safari. Then tried it on my PC with Firefox - samething.

    Any ideas?

    Well, your site is hosted at Affinity same as the Silly Billy site stated in the article.

    This sounds like Affinity's security was breached, or possibly its an inside job (Hypothetically, slip an underpaid staffer $500 and you'd be surprised at what you can do...)

    Here is the contact for Xeofreestyle if you want to alert them to the potential problem

    Didn't know that both sites had the same web hosts. I don't really even know who they are, just saw their site once and like the Flash they did :) I'll see if they catch the problem within a couple of days, if not maybe I'll shoot them an email and inform them.

    Thanks again! :)
