BEWARE - 8dio website Virus infected right now

Beware if any of you are purchasing from 8dio now, wait until their developers fix the infection.

Might be worth emailing support to let them know, along with any info that Kaspersky picked up.

This is the same company that forgot to renew their SSL certificate a few months ago.  

EDIT:  And now the site is down...

(Is 8DIO.com the new JRR Shop?)

Pretty sure that was a false-positive from Kaspersky. Not the first time a software installer has been flagged for that same supposed trojan. 

[EDIT: I was wrong about that. See Matthew's post below]

No it wasn't a false positive.  They were really infected.  Something had injected some code into their menu system loading something from a corrupt Wordpress site.  This wasn't the software/downloads but rather the website itself.
