Yes, I have gotten it about 3 times. I'm using Google Chrome. Several people posted about it on NSBR as well.

Haven't had anything either, I've been using ie and safari, though I have had a few norton notices about things being blocked (while on the PC, but none on the mac at all), and it was running a little slower than normal on the site.

I just got another one. I'm using Chrome, but I guess it doesn't matter which browser we're using. This is making me nervous. I don't think I'm going to stay on. I'll try again tomorrow, but I'm not going to come back on for the rest of the day if I get another warning.

This is interesting - I'm only getting the malware notice when I try to access the NSBR. This is the message I'm getting from Google:

Safe Browsing
Diagnostic page for

What is the current listing status for
This site is not currently listed as suspicious.

What happened when Google visited this site?
Of the 184 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2013-01-25, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days.
Malicious software is hosted on 1 domain(s), including

This site was hosted on 2 network(s) including AS36351 (SOFTLAYER), AS15169 (Google Internet Backbone).

Has this site acted as an intermediary resulting in further distribution of malware?
Over the past 90 days, did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites.

Has this site hosted malware?
No, this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days.

Next steps:
If you are the owner of this web site, you can request a review of your site using Google Webmaster Tools. More information about the review process is available in Google's Webmaster Help Center.
My guess is that someone on the NSBR has either posted a link to the anormal blood sugar levels website, or has the link in their siggy, and that's where the malware is. I hope 2Peas is doing something about it.

I haven't gotten any messages about virus but then again I'm on my iPad & I don't usualy check the NSBR boards! Besides I think when you use your iPad it will stop any kinda virus or anything of that sort from attacking the IOS software. I believe it's built that way & that's why there isn't a anti virus software availbe for the iPad because its not needed! & this is why I'm a recent Mac user I HATE windows I have used them for many many years and without fail have had many issues & never any problems with Mac! Then again that could be the reason why there products are double the price! Totally off topic lol but I just wanted to say that if you browsing the site on ur iPad you should be fine and not to worrie!

Started for me yesterday, and it's making me nervous for sure! I get it no matter which board I try to go to. I am getting it for other sites too that I normally don't get malware notices for. I wonder if Chrome has "advanced" their software to catch more things. Hmmm?

Obviously I am still here but on my phone. It is enough to make me consider staying away though.

For those IE users who aren't seeing any messages, it is probably because IE is notoriously atrocious when it comes to security.

Yes, the warning is from
Google search.
But only through my iphone's browser..... I tried Chrome, Safari and Dolphin.
Trying to peamail someone and can't, because I am not offered a way to continue to the page with any browser on my phone.

Please put in support tickets if you can.

Both Firefox and Chrome browsers use Google's "attack" list. Google has identified TwoPeas as being compromised. You will not get the error using Safari, IE or any other browser.

This is evidently a problem that Google Chrome has been having recently, where sites are being blocked due to malware in ads. Maybe they upped their security setting somewhere which is now creating false positives. It was happening with some pretty big-name sites, it seems...

False Google Chrome malware warning blocks tech sites

On the bottom of the diagnostics page of the Advanced version of the "don't visit this page!" warning, it says that the owner of the site can go to the Google Webmaster Tools page and have a malware review conducted.

I did get the warning late last night while using Safari on my Mac. I scanned my computer using Sophos for Mac and it didn't find anything. Right now I am using the Two Peas App for iPad. I am not going to click on any links for now, just in case it is something coming from a link someone posted. There has been some suggestion that it could be coming from a posted link, an avatar or a signature that was recently changed. I hope that it is changed soon.

According to twopeas, they are aware and are working on it/corrected the problem.

However, it seems to be more widespread than just here.
