I just wanted to apologize to all the board members and administrators who may have seen my post about "Metalkult", I am sorry about the link.
In the past, that site was simply a music site and forum, that has in no way shape or form had any association with malware.
I will try to rectify the situation with the GuitarWorld.com webmaster, but in the meantime I hope that, in light of recent events, that you can forgive me for the post.
If I did any damage to anybody's computers, or anybody's data, I apologize to you.
I am sorry that I posted that link in the first place, simply because I didn't mean to put up the risk of a malicious link.
In the future, I will investigate deeper and work more interactively with webmasters to determine the security risks on these sites before posting them.

Thank you,
E. Jessen

Apology accepted. And welcome to Bleeping Computer. :thumbsup:

E. Jessen,


I clicked on that link last night, but no worries, I'm well protected.

Looks like that site has been severely compromised.

What is the current listing status for metalkult.com?
http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnos....com/&hl=en


Might be a good idea to get your own computer checked out.

:thumbsup:

Forgiveness is contingent on the delivery of cookies. :thumbsup:

I, too, am well protected. Avast! wouldn't even let me connect to the site in question.
