It appears that Google believes our site is spreading malware. Have we tracked down the source of this?
FWIW, I'm always willing to help with this kind of work, as I know the other admins and moderators
are probably a lot busier than I am (at the moment).

I meant to post the same complaint. Something is causing the Malware warning to come up.

Hey guys,

This is a known issue that will soon be completely taken care of.
The malware warning is a legitimate warning due to a php exploit that crackers are using to inject base 64 code into the php files that will send your browser pop up screens that redirect you to naughty sites in Russia. Make sure you do not click these links unless that sort of thing floats your boat. You should get the same issue when you visit the vistapedia site. In the near future, we are going to migrate the sites to a secure machine so these issues will be completely resolved. In the meantime, we periodically clean up the php files and it takes a few days to get cleared from the google harmful site list. The only issue is that the crackers usually attack once a week at this point. Thanks for the patience everyone.
