Clicked my GT bookmark for the 3rd or 4th time today and suddenly Google is warning me that GT is a reported attack site. When I told Firefox to connect anyway I got a stern warning about "badware." This was right after I set news.google.com as my home page, if that makes any sense.

Anyone else getting a warning?

I think one of the ads triggered it, or someone's taking advantage of the server issues GT has been having to insert some malicious code somewhere.

Same problem here in Firefox 17.0.1 -- I'm currently using IE to post.

It started very suddenly about 60-90 minutes ago.  I was in the forums browsing between threads when it suddenly popped up.

It was our ad server. Openx got hacked AGAIN. I have disabled all ads on the site for the time being as we look into this. I've submitted to the appropriate parties that our site should be clean now so warnings should disappear soon.

Echoing what's in the Feedback forum, we've nuked our ads to prevent this.   Sorry guys.  :/

ATB performed some investigative journalism and concluded the Russian mob is after Knightshade for refusing to review that adult-only game. I'd back you guys up, but I'm part French, so that won't be happening. (actually I'm Irish. And it's the weekend. So Im too drunk to help. But if this ever happens on a weekDAY, heads will roll!). <belch>

AdBlock Plus says "Never." And after not getting the warning when I came into the forum, I got it again when I replied to your post. Go figure.

What's annoying is that every time I get the warning again, my GT favicon changes to the international "do not enter" symbol. Have to set a new bookmark to get rid of that.

Me too.  Oddly, I get the warning every time I log on my home computer, and it pops up for the first 2-3 topics I navigate to.  Goes away after that.

Didn't see it at all from my work laptop at the office though.
