    This happened to me (at work...) yesterday. Site was down all yesterday evening too. Sounds like malicious code but I don't think it's a 'virus'.

    I suspect it's the jealous people from the Ford-Fiesta owners club...

    You need to go to java website download the latest version, also you need to remove java enviroment 2.41v from add and remove programs (xp) or programs and features (vista or Windows 7).

    Once you have update and removed the old version google and anti virus will not pick it up as being a virus, it is just a coding problem which is fixed by doing the above.

    If you need help with the above here is a link to javas website: Why should I remove older versions of Java from my system?

    It's caused by this iframe at the top of each page removing/upgrading java etc isn't going to fix it they need to find out what caused it and patch it, I see that they have upgraded the forum to vBulletin 4.1.2 overnight but this still needs to be removed from the header template or an offending plugin which has got into the vb loop.

    Avast has kept me off of audi-sport for 2 days :(
    Malware detected or something.
    Does site have a twitter page? I hashtagged "audi-sport" for some info but nothing found.

    I emailed the hosts of that particular domain, and they've suspended it. So anyone who was getting warnings, they should start to die down. The admins still need to take some action to remove the actual exploit code from the top of the forum and to get themselves removed from Google's blacklist, but it should actually be safe to visit again now.

    edit - I see they allow guest posts (i.e. from me!), so I wonder if that's how the exploit has got in, some kind of vulnerability in vB exploited by a random guest user (or even automated bot) who hasn't had to login and pass any kind of humanity tests...
