Back from the Dead

>rent a car bulgaria, I’ve been a bit busy lately in the past few months. Tropical SEO got hacked (again), and a few months later, I finally got around to fixing it :-)
Google is still showing the site as ‘dangerous’, though Firefox doesn’t display a warning page anymore. Please comment if you’re still seeing a warning in your browser.

Glad you’re back! I’m still getting the warning for every page in Firefox 3.0.3.

In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message.
