Try clearing cache maybe? I have had no other reports and still not currently running OpenX ads. Going to give it a few more days off. ;)

Still never saw the issue here... but did see it last night (and today) on tvshowsondvd.com so I guess they caught the same "bug" from Google.

Thanks...I have not seen any other reports, nor does Google tell me that their is an issue detected with the site. So at this time I will keep them running.

I am guessing you pulled maybe a cached page or something.

But keeping an eye on it. ;)

Yeah, it is weird. You would figure it would pop up on your first visit to the site, but it acts randomly.

Firefox 17 is the one with the bug that never removes sites from the blacklist, upgrade to Firefox 18 or do the workaround here:

It does seem other sites are having problems, or were yesterday.

Yes, I had to again turn off OpenX here as again it was allowing the detection to take place. Augh.

Not sure why this just started today for me and others had this warning for months. I tried clearing all my browser history, but the site advisor is still showing red. Its not hurting anything, just wondering why it happened today and I can't get it to go away?

My large (>170K employees) employer is also blocking DBSTalk now as McAfee flags it as malicious.

Since the mobile stays in the vehicle during the work day I no longer have access to DBSTalk during a typical day.

There are a number of us on here who are affected

I also have to use my tablet at home until I do something about McAfee (Company-provided) on my laptop.

Unless you are seeing a notice from your own software on your computer saying it has intercepted and blocked malware that was being downloaded to your computer at that very instant, most such blocking notices are based on a list of sites with known (or maybe just reported) malware downloading histories.

Just as a site cannot be placed on such a list before malware from the site gets detected/reported, sites don't drop off such lists instantly, either.
