No more warnings from Google Chrome on either of my computers now.

Many, many thanks to Martin for working to sort this all out and for explaining things to us!  :clap:

Yay, that's great! No more warnings from my version of Firefox either. Glad this site didn't have any serious issues because it didn't appear to be a false alarm.

It was definitely not a false alarm, Christina.  I actually had a trojan downloaded on to my computer without my permission, but I thankfully had Mircosoft Security Essentials to stop it.  You can't be online without any protection these days thanks to hackers and others who seriously need a life.

Martin, thanks for your help!  I doubt changing hosts would prevent everything as it's still the internet and anything can happen.

Glad to see this issue resolved. I've stayed off the website when Norton first stated giving me warnings. Then Google Chrome started giving me warnings. Now that I checked this morning, it's all clear. Sorry Patrick for not being able to respond back to your messages lately, been kinda busy with other stuff.

I must have those features disabled. It worked fine for me the entire time from both SeaMonkey under Slackware and xombrero under OpenBSD: http://wlair.us.to/remote/img/shots/1372873238.png

Today's the first time this week I haven't had that ominous red warning message appear.  I'm glad the issue's resolved, because I was scared away from the site for the past few days.
