Google Lists SCORE Website as Dangerous


January 18, UPDATE!

Now its being trumpeted that SCORE was getting help to solve the problem. A so-called world class racing organization needing help. Seriously, Baja Racing could not in a million years make this stuff up.

C'mon SCORE, step up and spend the money for a real site. Get it over with.

If things couldn't get worse, they have for SCORE International.

Google, the worldwide internet search leader, has determined and flagged SCORE's website as dangerous and damaging to users. HERE IS THE LINK SET UP TO WARN INTERNET USERS.

Here is the Search Results Data Display for SCORE on Google:
This site may harm your computer.
The organization that puts on the Baja 1000 and other famous races. - Similar pages""

What's behind the warnings? Quoted:
"You can choose to continue to the site at your own risk. However, please be aware that malicious software is often installed without your knowledge or permission when you visit these sites, and can include programs that delete data on your computer, steal personal information such as passwords and credit card numbers, or alter your search results."

If the Baja Mexico Boycott/Widespread criminal wars, lack of proper safety equipment, emergency communication challenges and the lack of any respect for the race results produced by SCORE itself wasn't enough, now Google has no respect for SCORE International's site. The warning against visiting the site is pronounced. The warning is on every SCORE search item. Hey SCORE, You're OWNED!
