Chrome lets you continue at your own risk - Bet it's an attack by the religious hackers that got my website a while back.

I didn't think to look for it. Just the first time I ever encountered anything like this on this site.

Glad they know hope it gets fixed soon.

After advancing at my own risk AVG kicked out a AVG detection and the treat was removed on my end ... It was a Exploit Redkit type 1952 if that helps and a URL name associated with it of (AND DO NOT CLICK IF IT LINKS IT OUT) of alpinepharma.cmartdevices.com/anzn.htm

OK for anyone coming here wanting to know what the heck is going on when they see a malware warning... here's the poop. A good number of major web sites have been black listed by google's malware algorithms in the last 24 hours. It is a result of a hack into a site used by an advertiser (NetSeer). Sites that have included the hacked advertiser in their web pages are now flagged. In most or maybe all cases from today the warnings are no longer pertinent, however proceed at your own risk. Best defense is a good anti-virus/web safety program. If you don’t have one then follow the recommendation of Google. Even if you do, then your mileage still might vary.. Good luck.

(Interesting tidbit.. apparently Microsoft's Internet Explorer didn't perceive a threat nor give a warning. But Netseer was hacked so maybe they should have?)

I was wondering if it might be advertising related, as I block most of the major advertising networks that explains why I didn't have any issues.

I think it's also Java related. I removed Java from my PC several weeks ago. I received a popup box on RR forums this afternoon telling me I need Java on this site. Never had seen that warning here before

Java just needs to go away. It is unstable and has more security holes than Swiss cheese.

Google flagged some suspicious Javascript - we're waiting for Google to remove the report/block

FYI, I'm on a mac and it's also effecting Safari. At least it allows me to continue.

Googles' diagnostics describe events over a 90-day period, what, this Netseer thing was the straw that broke the camels back? But Google makes no mention of it on the diags page. Better safe than sorry IMO, just put off my downloads until Google, StopBadWare.org and all the others give RR a clean bill of health - or at least a diagnostics description that jibes with what we know from experience

FYI, here is what's currently being reported by Google for Firefox. It sounds like more than just "suspicious" javascript. It's claiming that several instances of malware were actually downloaded and installed on target machines.

I am also suddenly having this problem with trying to get onto RadioReference.com.

It started around 6:43 PM Eastern Time. I was on RR and tried to click a link to go to the Forum, and I was redirected to a page that said that visiting RR "may harm your computer."

The site seems to belong to something called "StopBadware.org," and it says in the lower left corner "Advisory provided by Google."

I thought that I had a browser hijacking or some virus/malware on my computer, but I haven't found anything other than "BetterInstaller.exe," which I had Avast isolate and delete. (I didn't know BetterInstaller.exe was in my computer.)

Also, my browser history shows that right after I started having the problem getting to RadioReference.com, the title of the Forum page came up as "The RadioReference.com Forums - Powered by vBulletin." I haven't seen this before - this "vBulletin" thing. Could it be part of the problem?

I hate how these companies try to protect me without giving me options. I wasn't even USING GOOGLE!!! I wasn't on their page! Who are they to stick their noses into a website that I'm already ON??!!

I had to force my browser to go to RR (which took some work!) because these Big Brother Twits don't even give you an override option on their good-for-nothing "warning" page!
