Regarding Today's Downtime

Some may have noticed that today (Tuesday), ArloNet simply showed up as "Account Suspended". This was due to the fact that our hosting provider while running a routine scan on our website noticed a possible Malware threat on the site, and took it offline to protect the account, the server, and others. I'm in the process of going through things and doing a lot of cleanup to make sure everything is safe and secure. While I don't think that anything malicious was spread, it's better to be safe than sorry. In that respect, I'm going to make a few recommendations.

If you are on a Windows machine, you may want to download and scan your computer with one or the other (but I personally would do both) of these programs... They are all free and highly respected:

SuperAntiSpyware:

MalwareBytes Anti-Malware:

If you are on a Mac, chances are pretty slim you picked anything up... But if you'd like a little piece of mind (or if you share files to people on Windows systems), I'd recommend:

Sophos Antivirus for Mac:

Thanks for your patience as I get things back online. Right now, most things seem to be up and working but if not, please let me know by replying to this message.
