When I started to browse this forum as usual today, I got the following warning message from Google, followed by the following diagnostic?

Everything is fine over here. During my last browsing session yesterday (which ended approx. 2 hours before Barbara's post), nothing strange either.

Right now, thhat "attack page" stuff is preventing access with Firefox, telling me Quote:
Of the 44 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 31 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-05-14, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2012-05-14.

I'm using IE instead, which doesn't subscribe to the Google service.

I am using Firefox. I also tested using Internet Explorer. However, it may be that once I have chosen to disregard the notice, it may take effect until I restart my computer. I will restart now and see what happens.

Good morning guys,

It is safe to use the forum and wiki. The "Blogger Home" was somehow infected and contains unknown code. If I cannot fix it in the next couple of minutes, I will just take that section down until I get time to investigate further.

Best regard.
Frank

All fixed-up, although I still don't know how it happened. Will load the latest security patches later today.

The site is clean and I've requested a Google review.
The warning will, unfortunately, remain until after we cleared the review.

I don't get the message anymore, so Google's warnings must have expired and it recognizes it as safe now.
