Re: Malware Warning--Again!!!

It seems that SailNet has been reinfected. I attempted to connect this AM and our system went bonkers. The follwoing is the Avast blocking message:

Infection Details

URL:javascript:false;Process:file://C:\Program Files\Internet Explore...Infection:html:Iframe-inf
Warn your friends to avoid this website
Other messages followed in quick succession as I attempted to maneuver away from the site without shutting down our system which I finally did.
