I run IE9 and Norton Internet Security and I did not get any message of a problem.

Edit: I just used Firefox to come here and it gave me this. I bolded some of the text.

Some use proper blocking utilities, others don't.

Giggly is hardly any kind of security authority and is likely falsely flagging an ad of some kind. It may be OK as a search engine, but should not be trusted beyond that.

I'd be surprised if Google's attorneys would allow them to flag a site like this without concrete evidence of malware. That said, Google probably has a spider that clicks on every link, and I agree the culprit is likely one or more of the advertising links on the site.

Hi All...

I do not see any issue currently with the site itself and the main protection providers is not reporting any issue.

I am also thinking it came from an ad. Seeing that Google Adsense is suppose to fileter any such ads, I have left that one on. However we also run OpenX Marketplace which I have turned off at this time.

However, seeing it s "flagged" for some unknown reason, it might stay flagged for X amount of time before the flag is cleared. I can see no way to clear it.

So, well, we shall see.

Looking over the report from Google, it is not site wide as only 36 pages were reported today. So I am more and more guessing an ad. I have gone to some of the pages reported in my Google Webmaster Tools area that said are bad and can find nothing on the pages themselves or in any links etc.

Thanks

I have now submitted a request for Google to review the site to rescan the content in hopes to clear the message. So we shall see what happens.

Sure, this time of year of all times. Augh!

Right...As Mentioned...I have asked Google to re-scan us as the issue came from an AD and the provider has been removed. Now we need to wait for them to rescan and verify we are good.

THEIR IS NOTHING WRONG with the site itself and I have already removed the OpenX Marketplace that let the ad through. So we are just now waiting for Google to rescan.

Thanks

I guess I should have said something last night. Norton kept locking up the page load because of the ad site generating repeated popup messages about the "malware." It's not a problem this morning.

Got the same thing too, using FF 17.0.1. Knew it had to be a mistake.

Thanks to the site admins/owners for looking into this. Can't be easy to do this time of year. :)

I just got the warning when coming to the site - and this appears to be after you've removed access to that ad site.

We were hit with something similar on the vBulletin board I administer. I was able to clear the problem and get Google to unlist us.

I'll PM you with what we found.

Same thing just happened here. Had to uncheck the "block reported attack sites" box in Firefox just to get back here.


I'll bite. Where can I find a, "block reported attack site" box in Firefox to uncheck.

Could I instead click, "Ignore this warning" in the lower right corner of the warning message window?
