Virus Warning on thread - "How Light is Your Flywheel+Clutch?"

Several people reported to me a virus on a thread, "How Light is Your Flywheel+Clutch?" of my posting.

According to what I have heard it says:

"Content from Flat 6 Innovations, a known malware distributor, has been inserted into this web page. Visiting this page now is very likely to infect your computer with malware."

I have NO AFFILIATION with said error or its' origin. In fact, I am vehemently OPPOSED to people that do things like this!

I am not willing to speculate on how it got there.

I would like to have thread removed or copied to another location rather than be associated with causing anyone here ANY harm.

I think Jake's site got hit by something so Google lists them as a "malware distributor". I just tried and got in fine, Flat 6 Innovations

The issue popped up yesterday after a ton of traffic from these threads were directed to the "tales of a two piece crankshaft" article on my site. My IT department has it under control, but the host is taking their sweet time addressing the gripe with Google.

It'll be fixed in a day or two, the site has been scanned and no malware or etc exists.
