As many of you know, many of ALA’s wikis (including YALSA’s) have been the victims of a malware attack. So, when you go to the any site that uses http://wikis.ala.org as its URL, you’ll get a red screen notifying you that this is an attack site.

ALA has removed the file causing the attack designation, so our sites are safe again, and is working with Google to remove the warning. We’re hoping this will be done very quickly. In the meantime, we have found out that the site is opening without any trouble in Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience. For updates, please check the YALSA Blog, the YALSA Twitter, the YALSA Facebook or YALSA’s electronic discussion lists, and please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at skuenn@ala.org with any questions.
