    That could be a holdover from the problem we had back in October. The site is now scanned multiple times per day to detect changes. There have been none since the hacks were removed.

    In the future, please PM me directly for problems like this. I don't read every thread in every forum.

    I visited the front page soon after reading it this morning, and neither Chrome's malware blacklist nor Trend Micro's WRS on my router reported anything abnormal. Could it have been caused by a specific ad?

    Unlikely. More likely the flag was set during the October problem and hasn't been rechecked.
