Yes, page 2 of the RIP Carrie Fisher thread gives it to me. Says neo-geo.com is an unsafe site. I assume someone posted a link to the neo-geo.com forums because of this...

"neo-geo.com forums , hacked ?" viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50975

Gunstar, what thread(s) gave you the warning?

Can a mod remove the link from that post so no one gets the malicious site warning?

Yup it's link poison, though the fact ng's forum does it for weeks now seems to make no sense to anyone over there either. Stupid false positive or something going on. The malicious complainer default to browsers is picking it up, but the added layer of anti viral from various apps with browser plug ins don't see anything. Very suspicious.

Maybe they've got an expired certificate or something otherwise out of date on the server.
