Thanks for the heads up. Am bringing this up to the team now.
The team is aware of this issue, Lenovo is currently working with the webhost on this. Will notify everyone once the site is back online.

The site has been cleaned and we have requested Google to rescan the site. The alerts will clear once the rescan is complete.
I would advise any customers who visited http://www.lenovoservicetraining.com/ion/ during the evening of Oct 17th (about 11 pm EST) through Oct 19th to run antivirus scans on their systems as a precautionary measure.
(Edit - the issue was isolated during the evening of Oct 18th)

We have closed the site temporarily for maintenance. We are taking this action as we work with Google to get the site rescanned and complete our investigation. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
Lenovo completed the investigation of the malware event on the service training video website (www.lenovoservicetraining.com). The malware was identified as a trojan of the JS/Gamburl.E type which can be detected and removed by a number of antivirus products including Microsoft Security Essentials.
Customers who visited the training site recently, especially between Oct 17th and Oct 19th are advised to ensure their antivirus utilities are up to date, and to perform a full system scan as a precaution. Google completed the site rescan overnight and found it to be malware free, however the site remains closed for maintenance and upgrade with an expected return to service during the week of Oct 25th.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
The Service training site updates are complete and has returned to active service.
