    Could someone tag the gamebanana representative here? I forgot his name. I'm not going on the site until this clears.

    The same happened to me. I still went in, and it all seemed normal. I'd like to get some extra information, though, since I might want to upload something today.

      You can still visit the page since I found nothing and I have my firewall set to max and nothing was reported. It might be a recent upload that they flagged.

        Sounds like a bad ad or two got in the rotation.

          That's exactly what happened.

          Hey guys sorry about this.

          Somehow a dodgy advert got into our ad provider's rotation and several high profile sites such as us and deviant art were flagged as malware. The problem has since been resolved and GameBanana is fine to visit again now.

            Since it looks resolved, I'd like to add something to this specific warning Chrome/Firefox tends to give. One of my client's Joomla websites was hacked and all files on the server were modified with a chunk of encrypted code that looked malicious. Google's crawlers scan all the websites around the globe for these kinds of codes and whenever one is found, it will mark the website as dangerous until the problem is resolved. I went on and did a full restore on the website and changed some passwords around, went into Webmaster Tools of Google and did a re-check. That solved my problem. Just my 2 cents for those who might get to handle these kinds of situations.

              I've downloaded like 10 skins in the past couple days and I'm fine. Ran malwarebytes and some other programs after I was finished and they found nothing. I also have NoScript which stops java from running and AdBlock though so I was fine from the beginning.
