If you had visited the SHP index page (http://www.sierrahelp.com) anytime this week - please update your virus scanner and run a scan on your systems.

An iframe had been added to the homepage. It has been fixed, but it looks like it was intended to install scamware.

And to be clear this only applies to the main FRONT page (www.sierrahelp.com) and does NOT apply to any of the other pages within the site or forum.

Well, I only visit the forums (I have a direct bookmark here), but I'll still scan anyway. I've needed to do that for a while. :)
