View From Purcell, Oklahoma: Danger! Malware Ahead!

Danger! Malware Ahead!

Anyone else getting these messages? They have just started in the last 3-4 days and seem random. Although, once a post has been identified as having malware that post is never 'clean'.
 
Below is the message I get from Google Chrome:

It seems that www.topblogarea.com is the problem for Chrome. Is this something that AR needs to check into or..........

Than -- just saw someone else's blog on this item.  They also were using Chrome, and they reported it to Kerrie.

Certainly makes me wonder if Chrome is over-sensitivce or is Explorer allowing malware through?

I don't use Chrome so I've never seen that malware message.  I'm on a Mac using Safari.  Things all well here (I hope)

Like William, do not use Chrome, and have not seen this.   BUT have seen a couple posts on this, so need to be aware of this issue.

I switched to Firefox and like it better than Chrome.  I haven't had any propblems.

I use Chrome because of Scribefire. It is the only blogging program that has been compatible with ARs blogging platform.

Than,

Thanks for the heads up.  Hopefully, I'll avoid the problem since I used Explorer. 

Take care,

Yes, these are everywhere and have to do with widgets that people are adding to their websites.

Than, I was one of the lucky ones who got this AR and I were on the phone, email etc the explanation was that it was one of the Widgets on the side of my blog..... was told that there were only a handful who were effected!
