Update 22nd September 2009: Razer was alerted of an malicious attack to our support site this past weekend (19th September) by a malware virus or trojan. We had earlier taken down the support page for the past 24 hours to ensure all issues were resolved. If you have downloaded and installed drivers or firmware from www.razersupport.com from the 19th of September 2009, it is recommended that you visit one of the following sites for a free virus scan:
•AVG 8.5 - Download direct from download.com
•Avira Antivirus - Download direct from download.com
•Trend Micro Housecall - http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
•Avast Antivirus - Download direct from download.com
If you have been affected due to this incident, please write in to us directly at http://help.razersupport.com/us-en/email.asp or submit in a support ticket. We are also in the process of restoring all of our driver files and firmware. If you come across a broken link to a file, do write in to us at http://help.razersupport.com/us-en/email.asp with the subject "Missing file". We apologize for any inconvenience caused
