Copyright infringement email

Got an email advising I downloaded copyright content. I don't want to talk about that but the email is apparently part of the "get it right from a genuine site" campaign. However when I visit the site getitrightfromagenuinesite.org my computer tells me it is infected with a virus!

Can a mod deal with that link please? It did the same to me.

Hi there.

That's odd. The link works OK for me too.

Could you elaborate on what you mean by "my computer tells me it is infected with a virus"?

If you can, post up a screenshot?

It came up with a blank page, then set off my anti-virus, could be a false positive I suppose. There was a voice-over too saying puter infected.
