I myself have not encountered anything of malware, spyware, Trojan activity of any kind or pop ups or security breach messages at all on the forum when loading (all tested will a clean cache), browser Firefox 20.0.1, internet explorer 10 x64 bit, security software: Zone Alarm Security 2013 pro edition, plus malware bytes 1.75 pro

tablet devices used
Ipad 2 , safari, Perfect browser (latest versions)
Android tablet 10" and Arcos Gamepad tablet both running, opera Mini / mobile (latest versions)
LG p990 smart phone using it's in house browser and Opera Mobile (Latest versions)

from personal (past) exp, if there's something there, Malware Bytes will find it-bought a ye olde PC off mates mother, just for olden day PC gaming, thought i'll run Malware Bytes, just to be safe, mate says he's cleaned PC, the amount of high risk threats it found (looks like she visted some 'curious' sites in her time online, lol), which other Anti-Virus scans failed on, convinced me of it's worth.

Well, now WOT is also giving poor ratings to the site.  Not sure what is going on.  It says the site has been listed as having malware by a site called Yandex.

Whatever the problem is it must be solved somehow. When the site is flagged on major browsers no new visitors will come.

Yandex still seems to be listing it as potentially harmful site.

That's my issue here. No major site or company is listing the site. Only a Russian search engine with connections to Opera and WOT.

But rest assured I am removing stuff to see where the issue is and then bring everything else back.

What annoys me is I have registered with Yandex and the only page with a so call issue is the frontpage. So far today Yandex had told me the site is clean and has an issue twice. How is that possible. Do viruses play hide and seek now lol.

Our hosts have now completed a full check of the server and it found no issues..

Also today at http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/ret ... amer.co.uk we are clean..

Unsure what was causing it but it would be more down to good code be confused as bad code.

Glad to hear it. Opera/Yandex still flag RVG as scam, but at least with Opera's vanishing market share that will not have a big impact.

What link? I just get a warning whenever I visit RVG, like on the pic I posted at the beginning of this thread, and a red warning beside the URL-field all the time.

I suppose Opera is working with Yandex, and Yandex  still has RVG blacklisted.
