Sorry if this is not the place to post it, but the new link at SimHQ to a site that has Oleg doing a SOW exihibt got flagged by my Norton 2011 Internet Security as a Russian site that tries to install a Trojan virus in your computer.

If your anti-virus is not up to it, don't click on that link.

Hmmmm. My newly-installed AVG Free 2011 didn't find anything, though I may not have clicked an all the links at SimHQ. On the other hand, Norton does seem to have a reputation for generating false positives.

Did you report the problem to SimHQ?

Not a member there, and I didn't see a quick way to PM the mods. The Il2 guys were my first concern. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You may be right about the false-positive, but if it is, it's the first I've come across in several months of using Norton Internet Security. I've had cautions before, but never a flat out "Don't go there!" warning like this.

I'll check into it.

Thanks.
