Someone hacked in and uploaded malicious files, meant to gather info.  As a result, the "upload files" option has been disabled.
 
The host is attempting to trace the hack.
 
Anyhoo, many apologies for the problem.

Glad you're back on line.  When the "websites for sale" site popped up, I feared the worst.

Someone again managed to upload malicious files.  The host automatically shuts us down to minmize any damage that might occur.

That virus was removed months ago.  Google refuses to remove the warning, unless we allow them to place monitoring software on the site.  Which I will not do. I believe it's the result of a false complaint made to a gov. agency.  Our webhost runs a clean up every week, if there's anything unusual they shut us down and notify me.

So, no virus just google being jerks.

Do not know what it does mean, just want to inform you
