Default Brewgadgets.com warning page

I clicked on the Brewgadgets.com ad and got a page saying it was an attack site.

Never ordered from them but the site seems legit and I don't get any warnings. The whois record is the same as the physical address of the store listed.

This is what I get from Google. When I clicked the add from HBT I got a warning page also.

What this means is that the site has been distributing malware. It does not mean that the owners of the site are malicious or committing fraudulent acts.

The most likely scenario is that the hosting provider is not as up to date as they should be with security related patches, and the bad guys have put some content on the site that the owners are unaware of.

Default Update on Brew Gadgets

Hello everyone,

Yesterday our site was attacked by a third party and supposedly they uploaded malware to our site and Google has detected it. We are working as fast as we can to get this problem fixed and are in the process of switching web hosts to a more secure host.
