I was on the site several time during those period. No problems, no malware, no viruses. My AV is current, my browsers are current, my OS is current.
People need to protect themselves. Expecting any website to be 100% secure is naive. I think the TS team did an excellent job of noticing, finding, and controlling the problem. 99% of other sites would not of even of let you know there was an issue at all. And left you totally unaware that there was any problem and/or that you may of been compromised.
I wanted to say something along these lines as well, only you said it better. Quoted for Truth, well said.
There is something so appealing about backhanding someone across the face with a shield.
I got the same warning despite having relatively up to date things, word of the wise? don't download stuff you don't purposely select to download, any site that offers a "download" should always be an automatic hell no.
