IT is looking into this. He has found nothing and the only site that has it listed as a problem is Google, so he has a request into them to see why. :(

Here is what he said last night, "From what I can find, there is nothing wrong. I've put in a request to have the site reviewed by Google since they are the ones that blacklisted the site. Everyone else says the site is clean." So we are waiting to here from them now. :(

Will keep you posted.

I got the same alert, but when I clicked the "More info" button it said that at the last 90 days, the site has been clean and malware free.

I have not received any warnings from home. However yesterday at work, I was blocked out of the gallery and the forum but could get into the store. I figured it was work telling me to 'work'. [although on Thursday- no problem].

From Ginger: The reason the site was flagged appears to be due to a security patch from Vbulletin. The current version we use could not get further updates. So I have just purchased the newest version of Vbulletin ... Bad news/good news... I was not to excited to spend $200 on the new version, but now we will have the most recent updates and possibly some fun new features. Stephen is working hard to get the new version installed and everything back up and running - error free.

UPDATE#2: The theme seems to be correct now and users of IE10 can now use the return key for a new line You should be able to edit posts now also.

UPDATE: I'm having to redo the theme so the site may look a bit messed up for the next little bit. Please bear with me.

This is just a test post

Thank you, Stephen for your hard work on making GS run smoothly from the back-end :D

and that sounded SO wrong!
