Maybe Justin should look in this????
I am getting this too. On Safari i get the page telling me and on Rogers i get warnings for it.
I'm going to PM a mod or admin about this...

I too had a problem this past week and when I ran a scan it indicated malware. I couldn't figure out where it could have come from as I am only ever on my four daily websites I visit.
Today my computer has a major virus and I'll be getting it looked at in a day or two. I hope admin can find out how to block this from their site.
Glad (sort of - you know what I mean) that someone posted this - now I know that others have gone through this too.
If you have any tips or specific software you use, post that info too.

I haven't seen that malware warning, but there were some inappropriate adds a week or two ago, advertising for lingerie with a scantily clad woman and using words that would not be allowed in the forum. Don't know if there's any connection.

Unfortunately, the software we use for the front page was deemed "End of Life" some months ago and the company producing the software is no longer updating the code with security updates. As such, some malicious person is using a security hole in the front page software to insert code into some of the articles.

I have identified the security hole and patched it. Although it has been fixed, it highlights an important issue that needs to be addressed. As a long term solution, we will be converting to a different CMS that is still in development and will continue to provide security fixes. Unfortunately, this is a difficult transition and may take a few weeks to complete.

We'd like to stress that what is happening is in no way affiliated with WI, or any of its advertisers, and if we can identify the culprit, there will be legal consequences.
