# Aw, man
After losing some friends and family members, I've been thinking about the web properties we leave behind for quite some time now.

Scrambled Edd leaves behind a website - eddsworld.co.uk - that currently resists visitors because of a malware alert, probably resulting from some spamming twunt injecting naughties via his blog. (Excerpt from Google report: 'Of the 102 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 3 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-03-27, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2012-03-15.')

Perhaps with the right contacts/permissions, this is something we can tidy up and sort out on behalf of his loved ones so Scrambled Edd's site can serve as a reminder of what a talented and clever chap he was, instead of a platform for some spamming tossbag.

# ^ this
The virus is very real. My sad-looking laptop with its reamed bootsector can vouch for it

# According to his twitter, I think
It got rectified and is just awaiting a rescan by Google.

Hope his friends/family keep the domain and hosting running.

Sorry about the Malware threat currently on my site, the problem should be fixed, just need to wait for the warning to be removed by Google

# I hate to be a wet blanket
but that was on 8 march...

... and according to Google 'the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2012-03-15' (i.e. a week later)

So the rescan has happened and there's still some cleaning up to be done.
