Every time I click on thesteadicamworkshops.com on "Tiffen International Workshops" (direct link: flysteadicam.com), I get a virus warning (even on different pc´s with different anti virus tools).

Can anybody approve this?

It's basically a health and safety warning to advise you of how addictive Steadicam is. One workshop, and you're hooked. Beware.

I get the same warning. This is from the "Google Safe Browsing" system. Most browsers have implemented it. What it means is that sometime recently, when Google visited the site, it found a virus somewhere on it. Usually, this happens when sites have ads on them, and an ad provider gets hacked. Then, rather than serving up ads, the space where the ad normally would be is serving up viruses.

Nasty stuff, really. I'd steer clear until that website no longer gives you the error (which it should whenever the problem is removed).
