HI UU mates,

Is it just me or there seems to be something wrong with Moku uke website? After watching Aldrine's coverage of Moku uke, I went to their website to check their ukes.

When I hit the home site, I got a page that scanned my pc and within 5 sec, it said my PC was infected. The URL I went to was www.mokuukes.com/

Unconvinced, from Google search, I found the Moku Island series site and went there. Immediately, my virus scanner blocked the site and displayed an alert saying the site contained harmful codes. The URL I went to was

Same thing happened to me but my AV prevented opening the page. I've been to their site back in November after they first posted on UU without any problems. I sure hope they resolve the problem.

I'm not getting any alerts in IE or FF. Have both MSE and Avira watching over my browsers.

But for safest browsing, I've been using FF with the NoScript plugin. It's not just "dodgy" sites like warez or porn. I have been hit before by searching for something as innocent as "ukulele tabs" and going to someone's personal page. Unsecure sites and those that carry third-party ads are often targeted by hackers who will inject a malware script that wrecks havoc.
