    Been going to this site for years and all of a sudden two days ago my computer started flashing "this site contains malmare that can harm your computer". Anyone know anything about this?

    That site has a lot of problem from time to time, you just have to keep checking back in every now and then.

    They have a Facebook page where you can get info. Don`t think the problem has been resolved yet.

    Here is the link to the Google Safe Browsing site....

    It lists the problems they found with www.shotgunworld.com

    Their website code seems to have been infiltrated by some hackers and a few malicious bits of software could be installed on your computer without your consent....

    use the following link to find out the details....

    My guess is that you picked up a piece of intercrap that's going to ask you to run its cleanup software and then either sell it to you or freeze and hold your system hostage until you pay to ransom it. Way more common than you know!
