That was today?  I've done a complete server scan (all this scanning and backing things up is what is pounding the server, making it slow, etc.) and it came up clean.   Let me know if you see it again please.

I'm seeing the same thing. Happens when I hit the main front page (not the forums). I'm getting the giant 'red alarm of DEAR LORD SOMETHING BAD IS HAPPENING!' in avast!.

Same IP address as EngineNo9.

Let me paste some info:

"Object: 194.8.250.219/tds/in.cgi?default
Infection: URL:Mal"

Best guess is that this looks to be some sort of redirect/ad issue.

Note: This did not happen earlier today. Just started to happen when I tried to hit the site just now. Strangely enough, NoScript is not detecting or stopping this.

And according to Google, that IP address is just a total mess of infected everythings:

Quote
Of the 2815 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2010-07-16, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2010-07-16.

Malicious software includes 800 trojan(s), 164 exploit(s), 25 virus.

This site was hosted on 1 network(s) including AS43134 (COMPLIFE).

Interesting.  I didn't activate the google ads.  I activated the GoG ads.  I have deactivated them.   Once the ads are gone, let me know if you see this again please.

Thanks
