Just a note: the latest dev build of Google Chrome for Windows is reporting the AndroidCentral forums as a site that hosts malware. Dunno what steps you can/should take to get that nipped, but I wanted folks to be aware.

Frankly, every download I've ever seen here has been quality. Wonder if this is some kind of petty play to divert traffic.

Right on. Sounds like they were well on top of things. Bugged the heck out of me to see a site that's done me such good get mistakenly flagged.

Chrome warned me on my Vista machine and McAfee warned me in IE8 on my Windows 7.

Sure was happy no warning slapped my face when I attempted to access AC this time. :)

We first caught this around 8-8:30 am this morning with the warnings and immediately reported it to administration and they addressed the situation immediately looking for the problem. At no time was anyone's computers/phones in any danger to our knowledge :)

Thanks for everyone's patience.
