I'm getting this also, only from squiffy2 posts. I'm taking the warning seriously, and am not opening posts from squiffy2.

I suspect that it's a false positive. I don't see any problem with his posts to the forum.

Hi all,

I have contacted Google to have this warning removed!

The server where my charity humour site resides was was hacked about 4 months ago, and malware was spread across all sites, not just mine.

It was picked up within an hour and the sites were all taken down, servers cleaned and sites reloaded.

Why Google has suddenly, after all this time added one of these warnings is beyond me and this is why I contacted them first thing this morning to have this rectified.

The current security log on Google for my site confirms that there has been no malware etc on there for over 90 days (see below)

I had already removed the link to Squiffys House Of Fun Laughter for MS from my signature, so am not sure why or how this warning is poping up..
