Default "Need to Find Drivers" sticky post warning!

Yesterday, I attempted to find an old 3Com driver using Kodo's "Need to Find Drivers" sticky at the top of the forum threads.

This list has not been updated in around 10 years. Some of the sites come up "404" (not found).

The site "driverguide.com" appears to be infected with malware: When attempting a driver download, it attempts to add the Babylon toolbar, a known malware threat. Even after clicking "decline" and exiting the page with "Alt + F4", Malware Bytes found and cleaned an infection left in IE browsing history.

Since Kodo has not posted in over a year, I'm posting this in hopes the MG Admins will remove the dangerous link and update the others.
