Exploits/Malware

Two days ago I got this message:

The hosting for somersetweb.com has been suspended. It was suspended because there was a registration agreement violation.

More specifically,

Exploits/Malware. Permanent Suspension

I contacted my hosting company immediately. They sent me back the hosted data and I ran a scan with Malwarebytes, getting this list of VisualFORTH-files:
Generic.Malware/Suspicious, C:\SOMERSETWEB\VISUALFORTH\EXAMPLES\TEXTBOX64.EXE
Generic.Malware/Suspicious, C:\SOMERSETWEB\VISUALFORTH\EXAMPLES\LEDBOX.EXE
Generic.Malware/Suspicious, C:\SOMERSETWEB\VISUALFORTH\EXAMPLES\ONETEST.EXE
Generic.Malware/Suspicious, C:\SOMERSETWEB\VISUALFORTH\VISUALFORTH-6-1505.ZIP
Generic.Malware/Suspicious, C:\SOMERSETWEB\VISUALFORTH\EXAMPLES\LEDSWITCH.EXE
Generic.Malware/Suspicious, C:\SOMERSETWEB\VISUALFORTH\EXAMPLES\RPN-CALC.EXE

This software is stored on these locations since several years, starting in 2009, and never was rejected. Since a while more and more antivirus programs classify Win32Forth programs as malware.
There is a group of Win32Forth users which are trying to fix this problem, see Facebook, Google, and Yahoo groups:

Members of the Taiwan Forth Interest Group are helping a lot.

I hope that my webpage VisualFORTH.org will run soon again.

For now there is no download of VisualFORTH available, because all VisualFORTH website contents are hosted at SomersetWEB.com.
