I am getting the warning again.

This was funny at first, but right now I am beginning to wonder if your site has not been infected with some malware you are unaware of. You make the warning disappear, but it comes back, so I presume there must be something going on you are unaware of...

I am looking into it. From what I can gather is someone may have a signature that's got a malware link.

BTW I am not making anything disappear. That's the weird thing about this, how does it come and go. When you get it please get the page details from the warning you get. Cheers.

Ok when you get that can you view more details and send to me.

I have removed loads of site features and stopped certain code for signatures.

Any change?

I don't know the cause, my link is directly to the forum overview, and I don't see any details, just that the site is "blacklisted"

In non-technical terms, just what exactly is this malware doing? whats the risk?
(basically WTF is the malware doing? key logger or what?)

just checked with I.E smartscreen, link still clear.

Malware can be everything that's bad for your computer. Key loggers for example as you said. Mal stands for malicous, can be any kind of viruses I guess.

I told zapiy that him using an Amstrad CPC to run the forum would only ever end in tears but he just wouldn't listen.  :4:

This is extremely hard to pin down. There is no knowing what the threat level is but any threat level is more than we want. Like I have said I have scanned the main files and there is nothing in the files so there must be a link somewhere.

We will find it, what annoys me about these detecting program's is they say you have a threat but don't pinpoint it.

I don't get any warnings of any kind on either of my PC's using Google Chrome with Spybot and MS Security Essentials.

You can try communicating with the manufacturer of whatever software is flagging the site to find out.  Sometimes, there is nothing wrong at all and they are flagging the site for no reason.

Like i say there was a 'blip' on I.E on 360 few days back, smart screen filter gave a warning site had been reported for Malware, but that's gone now.

Friend of mine years back (techno-savy person) had spate of bad luck, via Firefox security update his laptop picked up a keylogger, he had PC wiped etc said 'I'll be bloody careful from now on!' (famous last words) then weeks after, fell for a scam email claiming to be from his bank, asking him to update his security profile, all they needed was current password etc etc, which he gave, thought no more of it until out shopping with the missus next day, went to pay, no money in account, been cleaned out by someone in USA!.

Could'nt believe he fell for that old scam, but just proves enough do.
