Your link showed the same small image and I couldn't read the words.

You are referring to the main forum itself?

Do you get the same type of message in IE or Firefox?

Is it a google chrome message or an anti virus message?
If anti virus which one do you use?

Something may be finding problems with advertising or something related to it.

If you can exclude the site from being checked by whatever is reporting you may be better off.

Is anyone else getting any messages?

I'm not getting any in IE7 and Avast.

Looks like Crome's safe browsing displayed a false positive. FF has a similar feature that showed up when I went to -G's site a while ago, it works fine now.

I know we're pretty liberal here but shouldn't this be in the Forum & Website Feedback :?:

The hits on my web pages were problems.
A very long line of code was added at the bottom of every one stored at my host.

A google search gave me ideas of what to look for and I removed the code from all the pages.

I now have a good copy saved so all I have to do is replace everything next time, if it happens again.

My host has started forcing everyone to change their password at times and also tests the strength of your password as you enter it.
If it's not strong enough you can't use it.

I think the conversation is educational for many.

I do all my computer learning when problems occur.
