Sounds like it is not a big deal, just a warning that needs to be removed.
Google's results help shed some light on it I think:
If it's just a false warning, then it must just be a complete coincidence that this site had anything at all to do with the problems I experienced, I just thought the timing was odd, seeing as I "appeared" to have become infected sometime during the Reds/Cards game Sat. and between that time and Sun. seems to be when users of this site began experiencing the "warnings".
Let me add that I am one of those morons that always lets their antivirus expire and then basically runs their computer unprotected. I have purchased 4 new computers since 2006, done the same with all of said computers and have NEVER had any infections, etc. (just getting rid of tracking cookies, etc. via running ad-aware or programs of that ilk). Yesterdays malware infection was my first time experiencing such a thing. So I could have picked it up somewhere else and it just chose to "show itself" after the game yesterday.
So yeah, this site may very well have nothing wrong with it at all, I just wanted to report the problems I experienced after reading that others were getting the warnings. As I mentioned in a previous post on the matter, this particular form of malware seems to be going around like hotfire in the past 3 - 5 months or so.
