Ominous isn't it. How does the saying go, "I wouldn't even touch that with your puter!" :eek:

Same thing via mobile. If you search with Bing, the warning doesn't come up and it goes straight to site.

Has anyone considered emailing CY? I rarely go to their page since they removed any and all information about their previous models. Ridiculous.

Recent traffic on their Facebook page says they were hacked recently and infected, but the website provider/host/whoever, (I am not an IT guy) says the site is clean, and that the warning is a latent Google thing that will disappear once Google swees the site has been "sanitized"

Here is a quote from their FB page yesterday:

Here's a statement from Catalina's web provider dated Monday August 6, 2012 Time 11:00am

Ron,
Due to the attacks on your website, they ran into this information. We have been clearing the malware off, and resetting the website after each attempt.attacker from future access.
Google has a protection scheme that most people aren't aware of. If their servers detect any malware on a site when preloa... ding a cache of the site, it will pop up a warning. This automatically goes away after they pull it up a couple of times afterward, with no malware. This happens in multiple browsers. People aren't aware that their browser is going to Google BEFORE going to the website that they typed in, even if they didn't search for anything.
As of this morning, the website is still clear.
