Got same warning on FireFox running on Fedora...

I was right in the middle of 136 pages, reading about XMOS USB to I2S converter and when I clicked next page the screen went RED and I was like WTF

So, is this realy a treat to my computer while I am reading topic full of knowledge or what?
Best regards

EDIT: I noticed that pages took more time to load than before...

Seems we are somehow on the Google blacklist at the moment which means all Firefox and Chrome users are getting an alert. (Linux and Windows 7)

AVG (win only) does not report any issues.

I got the same thing, both using Google to search for a topic, and also on a thread tab that I never closed, but just refreshed to show new replies.

It could be due to bad code in an ad, but my money is on some idiot reporting the whole site as part of a x-mas eve prank. Given the timing, it'll be the end of the week before they fix it.

It's kinda weird but just happened to me too in Firefox, which uses Google's blacklist. I'd guess an advertisement led to some malware.

It's from Google. May be their Webmasters Tools can get more info.

Weird when they blacklist the site without any diagnostic info.

Using the latest Firefox, and Chrome, I don't see any warnings come up. However, I have checked with Google Webmaster Tools and it looks like the problem stems from an image someone posted in a 2010 post.

The image was hosted from a remote site (img3.tinypic.xxxx - I have replaced the domain extension with xxxx), which has been hijacked recently. The thread (it was very short) has now been removed.

I'm going through the process of getting Google to re-scan.
