Indeed some malware has been uploaded to the nand2tetris web site through a compromised FTP account. This is a common and simple attack that affects many random sites; unfortunately we were hit as well. Meanwhile the malicious file has been found and removed it from the server. The www.nand2tetris.org site is now safe and things are back to normal. -- Shimon

Thanks a lot for the fast response.

Just want to say thank you also for the unbelievable course. I found this nand2tetris through your inspiring talk in TED. It is a wonderful journey for me in learning how to build a computer from a nand gate.

Thanks once again, Simon!
