FYI: Chrome (on my pc) just gave me a malware warning on forums.androidcentral.com. I SERIOUSLY doubt there's malware on here, but just thought the site devs should know my Chrome picked up this warning for some reason.

Thanks for the heads up.

I already contacted site administration and they are working on it now. Confirmed to trigger warnings on Firefox & Chrome.

@monkeypimp,

I believe its an advertisement that is triggering the warnings, at least from what I can tell watching the status bar load/connect to the pages... Site Admin is working on it now.

Thanks for letting us know.

Whew, thought I was the only one and my Mac was on the verge of implosion.

Still, I hope it's remedied soon!

+1. Firefox is blocking here. When I view the details it reports no threats from the server though. Glad I'm not the only one since its my work computer. Ha

Ditto on Firefox, but the details show no actual instances of malware on the site in the last 90 days. Very odd. Maybe somebody is trolling. Still, happy to have ABP. :)

It's clearly Verizon. Unsatisfied with the response to the Galaxy Nexus 4.0.4 update, they're going to bring us down, down, down!

Warning also on my EVO LTE using Dolphin

Perhaps it is this incredibly annoying "your opinion counts" pop up that is screwing with me today.

I came to this subforum to report the problem, I see you already know about it.

Just in case it could help, I received the warning about 60 seconds ago which was 6:27 PM Eastern time. I was going directly to my User Control Panel which I have bookmarked. I am using Chrome on MAC OS Lion.

I used apkafe the other day and realized there are quite a few apps that are quite weird

Welcome to Android Central! That doesn't have any direct relation to the original post of this thread, but in general, you should stay away from any of those apk sites -- there's a much higher chance of malware there.
