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.
If your PC had a virus/malware while you were on or posting on RZ, then it's possible it was detected, certain browsers picked it up (RZ uses Google ads, Chrome is clearly showing a warning message), so yeah probably something pretty minor. Awful sensitive security measures from Google or the host or someone though, not sure. Did you click on any of the Google ads, either by accident or not?
I don't think your original post accused RZ of anything, always good to bring that kind of thing to their attention (your PC was clearly infected at the time).
