I checked the site, and Firefox's "net-nanny' kicked in on me as well,
so there *was* something nasty there. i doubt it was just FF. Usually
there's a bunch more websentry systems that share this info.

For me, no big deal. I just engaged a bunch of 'extra' malware shields
and clicked thru the nags. (Not recommended for most folks, I'm used to
doing this, I know the risks.)

The basic site is still there, looking at the ED-01 USB 3 stick specs.
(I'm waiting to see how that plays out)

I found no malware, but that doesn't mean there isn't something there to
bite you.

I'd suspect that Kingmax's web-dog has already killed off the malware,
but the various websentry stuff will keep nailing kingmax.com for at
least a week this way. I can't blame them, I've seen well-meaning but
worthless "cleanups" all too often.

Right now I'd advise waiting a few days until the "net-nanny" stuff
expires. If you need something *now*, email sales (at) kingmax (dot) com
(dot) tw , but let them know of this problem.

Meanwhile.... (and for all)

Get used to this issue. It's just another battle with the darkside
internet assholes who do this crap.
