Anyone else getting a Malware warning from Google when trying to log on to HeliFreak?

I did yesterday but when I looked at the report it didn't show that there were any issues found, not sure why it was flagged if their own test shows no issues.

The reason I asked is because I could no longer open up my mail. I had to change my password in order to receive my mail and thought it may be related to this warning.

It appears the website has been attacked. My anti-virus detected a malware that will compromise your computer. I performed a full virus scan and removed the file. Allowing a compromised file on your computer can cause problems. The largest one could require a format and reload. I made my living as a computer professional so have a bit of experience in the field. Perform a full virus scan NOW!

This was posted on HF....

HF site contained one infected zip file containing Phoenix custom Heli skins that was uploaded by a good standing member who has been contacted. No software was installed on anyone's computer without opening the file. It makes it tough. I want people to be able to share files and upload the types they want but then stuff like this can happen.

Unless you have been installing stuff in Phoenix you downloaded from here in the last few days, you did not get it from here. Sorry guys. S now no more zips for a while or upload them to a file sharing site and link to them.

Yup. My Avast! virus scanner throws a huge red warning page when trying to go to HF.

Just got the new parts put in...took a pic of the new shaft and it is PERFECT!! WOW, what a difference in how this thing flies now. I went ahead and put the 'McpX blade grip bearings' in there too with a touch of CA to hold them in place. The other new parts sure make this how it shoulda been outta the box! Now...I have another issue...do I get another one of these, or do I get a 300x??? Christmas is coming up, so I need to know which one
I actually like this one better than my Nano-cpx!!! It is so steady now!! I've really been able to flip this thing and keep it under control! I LOVE IT!!!

Now, I guess I need to sell my Msr, McpX, T-rex 250 so I can fund another 130x OR the 300x!! I think I'll keep my Blade 400 3D...never been crashed

Yeah this is a great little heli, I am loving it...super fast and responsive
The only thing I dont undestand is the huge gear, which did rub on the elevator servo..and the slack in the shaft. Both very easy fixes just surpised that it still needs done

According to HH, they have only had 1 person that reported the gear actually touching the fet on the servo...the guy at HH said you can't get a piece of paper between the gear and the fet, but they don't touch...ok, that's still too close in my book, but oh well. The slack in the shaft? I know that the tail gear box wasn't pushed all the way on with my heli...I got it pushed all the way on, and I put a tiny dot of CA to keep it from sliding back, and I haven't had an issue with that since...To me, this is a better heli to learn on than the NcpX...more stable. I flip my nano- and it takes about 30-40 feet of space to get it back under control...right now...newbie at flips :P Still can't hover nose in for more than a few seconds, but I sure can flip this thing!! I'll tame down the Nano for inside flying...but this heli...have I mentioned I love it?
