Site news update regarding security warnings

Just to let you know that our host providers have scanned our servers for malware to the deepest levels and have not found anything to explain the Google security warnings many of you have seen.

In fact it's unlikely that the e-group is actually a risk factor at all because we now suspect that the warnings were triggered by suspicious banner ads on our siblling site, DPNow. Those ads would not have been shown here. We have now terminated the source of ads that we suspect is the problem. Google also points out that DPNow is not an intermediary for the malware and has not detected any malware in the two days since we stopped the suspected ad stream.

Our sites will remain on the Google list of sites they feel they need to warn visitors about, but there is a mechanism for us to apply to be removed from such lists and we are starting this application procedure and hope that the warnings triggered will soon cease.

Thank you very much for your understanding!

Ian
