Many thanks to Nathanael for identifying and drawing COG's attention to this.

Our website hosting company has now identified part of the problem and cleaned the suspect files, though this will not be reflected in google for some time owing to google's cache.

COG will soon institute changes to the website to minimise the likelihood of the vulnerability being exploited again.

Thanks again Nathanael.

When I Google "stubble quail canberra" and click the result to the COG website it takes me to some pharmacy medication site.
