I got on just before NOT through Google, but through the link on T&FN Facebook page!! I clicked on the blue T&FN link at the bottom of the FB logo!! Sent me here.....no more malware warnings!! (I'd clicked on that same FB link numerous times the past 3 days.....always getting the Google malware block!!)
There's a note on the front page (in Day's Best Reading) that says they've solved the problem by removing the offending ad.
But as others have observed, there doesn't now appear to be any advertising at all here. That may be good for malware prevention, and some people may prefer not to have ads anywhere on this or any other website. But that's like preferring not to have commercials on tv shows. Somebody's got to pay the bill for this stuff. I would hate to see the financial viability of the site jeopardized by the absence of advertising revenue.
Whatever is going on, let's just hope it's temporary.

You couldn't click through by 'accepting' the warning (last option on the alert page)?
I don't know about aaronk, but until last night, I had to override 2 warnings for every prompt, but at least I could read posts even though it was time consuming.. If I tried to post anything though, clicking through the 2 warnings in order to submit my comment automatically erased the post before it was posted, and brought me back to a blank posting field every time...
Well, it was fixed for a couple of days. Now I'm getting the malware warning again, but this time only on Firefox. Last time it was on both Firefox and Chrome. Damn! Let's go back to the old days when we communicated via letters to the editor....uh, never mind.
I got hit on my cyberworld last year from the T&F NEWS Malware.Emails were being sent out to all my people regarding all types of things.I was deeply concerned about someone sending out porn,and even more disgustingly child porn or something.I had to change passwords,etc.And try to warn,and tell my people that I did'nt sell the general spam sales pitches etc that were sent without my permission.Looks like it is finally fixed.Thank God.
Several years ago, I returned from a trip to discover my email account had been frozen because someone had sent 10,000 pornographic spams using my screen name. It took a while but I was finally able to convince my carrier it warn't me..

These rogue posters are a threat to this site. I hope ADMIN can do something to stop them.
Just don't click on their posts, and if you accidentally do, don't click on any links in it and you'll be fine. They can't do anything to you unless you click a link, the message board software doesn't give them the capability to inflict any real harm unless you go to their links.
My machine rebooted (via Microsoft) last night and when I clicked on my short-cut for the Home Page and the Forum I got the warning page. I clicked the 'ignore' and went right to the page, then clicked the Home Page link and did not get the warning page. I have not gotten the warning since the firs fix and run Firefox.
Thank you, guru, for adding to the list of things I need to be worried about. Having read the Homeland Security material, and a couple of websites referring to it, I see that I should probably be doing something, but I haven't the slightest idea of what I should do or how I should do it. I don't even know whether I have Java on my computers and, if so, what versions.
