    The report is the same report that hit twitpic last week - StopBadware.org Thing is they have no right to do this and part of it is Google going nuts.

    Getting the same thing, my chrome browser runs java regardless of security threats, and it did actually get infected by malware, the report gave me these details:

    'Trojan:Win32/Sirefef.BC'

    Not much, I know, but date and time coincides with when I got on to conceptart.org, I would suggest that Java is turned off unless you really need to run Java based applications (like the attachment manager... I think that runs on Java)

    Just FYI staff has been alerted. I am not on a PC since Firefox and Google blocked the site as being malicious.
