Pask Website - Malware on Website

Over the past couple of weeks the Pask, Paske One-Name Study website has been attacked by an "antivirus 2009" alert that has spread wide over the Internet. This rogue anti-virus software installs malware on the website that redirects to other sites for the download of this same rogue anti-virus software.

In non-technical jargon it was a scam to convince the person looking at the website that they had a virus attack, and that they should purchase the software to overcome this.

There was no risk to your computer, it was not a virus. There is no need for you to do anything. However if you are concerned, you can download one of the programs created specifically for "antivirus 2009" removal and scan your computer with it. One of such programs is available at:

This issue has now been resolved, and you should not have any problems accessing the website.

Many thanks to all those who notified me about this.
