False security alert

Postby pete » Fri Oct 12, 2018 3:00 am

Many users have seen the 'Attack site' report.

This is a false report and is being cleared by Google right now.

Meanwhile just click past the alerts - WE ARE SAFE - nothing has changed

Apologies for any inconvenience

The whole site is scanned and clean. It seems it will take google some time to realise this and they remove the warning (which is a false alarm) :cry:

We did find one page in HJG (historic jets group - we host HJG on our server) with an advert that lead to a free hosting website and it seems on that website there is a bad site. It's crazy how that can effect us .....

That page has been removed and the ad will not re-appear.

BUT 100% assured - simviation.com is SAFE.

I know simviation is alright.

I bypassed alerts and had zero problem. Also my Norton did not show up any issue.

Seems ok on my screen now.

ii thought I got it because I was on my laptop which still had win xp on it. I had since upgraded but not happy with the result. My hdd is 1TB and have 8GB RAM but even on the lowest settings FSX skips. I cant lower the FPS under 10 so im stuck with subpar permance :(
