The HLSW website was hacked on Friday, 12th January 2007 at 5:40 PM (CET).
We were made aware of the problem early and took the website offline at 6:10 PM so that we could fix the damage caused.
The attacker added a small piece of code to our web pages that caused users to be redirected to another website which we believe may have caused users to unintentionally download malicious software such as "DiskCleaner". Instructions are available on removal, however, we strongly recommend any visitors who accessed any HLSW webpage between 5:40 PM and 6:10 PM (CET) to perform virus and spyware checks.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
