I played some absolutely horrid golf today.  I went to punch in my worst score of the year into my state golf association’s handicapping system and found this:

Of the 662 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 52 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2009-05-13, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2009-05-13.

This site was hosted on 1 network(s) including xxxx (FIBER).

I deleted the URLs so as not to drive any traffic to the hackers or to have any search engine problems myself.

I called my association and they’ve taken the site down.  I’ve been there.  It isn’t fun trying to fix all the damage.
