forum has malware?

Warning: Something's Not Right Here!
bbs.archlinux.org contains content from web-hosting.tophostingcenter.com, a site known to distribute malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site.
Google has found malicious software may be installed onto your computer if you proceed. If you've visited this site in the past or you trust this site, it's possible that it has just recently been compromised by a hacker. You should not proceed, and perhaps try again tomorrow or go somewhere else.

I have a feeling this is wrong but thought I'd let you guys know.

Re: forum has malware?

Thanks, will notify the relevant people, though I think its probably a false alarm.

Re: forum has malware?

A forum post from 2.5 years ago had linked to an image from that domain. That post has been edited and the image removed.

@foutrelis, that is weird because I just went to that website and got a similar message.

Perhaps, the arch forum should cut ties with this website.

Which website? bbs.archlinux.org?

If a website in a domain that's not archlinux.org has some issues, that's their problem. According to foutrelis, the only "ties" we had was a single link posted by a user.
I don't think we're affiliated in any way.

Re: forum has malware?

Currently the warning is still showing up for bbs.archlinux.org sub domain in Chrome (but not in FF) . For the archlinux.org domain there are no problems. There had to be a post that had code/script which Google classified as mailware. Website administrator should login to Google webmaster tools and submit request for review.
