Yes. It is a weird javascript issue which most certainly does not harm anybody's computer, but even after many updates and removals of bugs, it stills pops up. I have been in touch with Drew about 5 times now with exactly this same message.

There are other possibilities for the cause, all which are being addressed,
but going to http://www.rejectedunknown.com/ WILL  --- NOT ---   HARM YOUR YOUR COMPUTER!!!

Thanks for keeping us posted. I'm sure Drew has his magic elves tinkering away right now on a solution.

Just out of curiosity how do you know that?

We've been marked in Google's index as "hosting badware" and it may take a while to get rid of this.  I've requested a review of our site by Google.

Somehow, someone was able to insert a bit of javascript into our index.htm page.  We've modified all our passwords and access to the site in an effort to stop this and we're still looking into exactly how it was done. The main index.htm page appears to be the only one that was modified.

The javascript was not harmful, but would simply redirect users to other sites.  One of these sites was yandex dot com, which is actually just a Russian search engine (like Google).

I'll post updates if I get anything meaningful. Thanks.

Just a quick update, it looks like Google has unmarked us and traffic to the site is picking back up.

Please let me know if anyone experiences problems in the future. Thanks!
