I am also getting warnings when I try to open the on demand color theory thread.
using chrome with avast.
Well I can't delete spam visitor messages or posts - I've been editing them as fast as I can. At least I can still ban the bastards.
Also not sure if related, but I get this issue too in some boards (Crit board doesn't give this warning to me) and I did the re-boot virus check that Avast can do and found some viruses in the Mozilla files. Not 100% sure if they came from that, but might be good for other people to do this same check just in case.
Do I need to be worried at all about posting/visiting here until this gets resolved?

I did a full Malwarebyte scan last night - came up with nothing. If you're to date I think you might be safe - it's a pretty old virus. I have everything on my computer backed up.
At this point I cannot reach the site at all. Connection resets. I am on my iPad right now.
I have firefox and avast and I keep getting the malware blocked warning. It doesn't seem to matter what part of the forums I'm in. Any new navigation within the site causes the pop-up. I don't feel comfortable finishing the CHoW with this wackiness going on.... Please fix or I'll have to go to cghub instead...
So no end to this? I tried windows explorer (yes i had to sink thta low) and that's even worse, no suprise really
Not yet. I've done scans of my computer with several programs and nothing has infected it, so if you're up to date, you should be okay. It's just very annoying.
Not worried about getting infected, most virusses are pretty lame and dont do that much but I cant access my usercp or the image loader and some random pages just wont show. Like you said annoying
Even getting this far has been a task
I had to put conceptart.org to my website exclusions for the moment. I'd rather not do.
Is there no admin? No technological higher power??? No lordly figure who in their benevolent mercy can answer the veritable "what the?" coursing through my simplistic brain? Because I'd like to keep on visiting my own sketchbook here as well as the challenges (which I try to do weekly). Alas, the silence is staggering. At any click on the forums I find a " HTML: Script-inf" whatever infecting my computer. False positive or no, it seems I'm not the only one...
C'mon, folks, someone in the know pipe in already...
They're on the case, but it is the weekend. Hold on for a bit.
Phew, Ok, so I`m not the only one...Well, at least the SB subforum is still intact. :I
Okay, I've heard from Jason. It'll be sorted, but it might take a bit of time.
Good to know it isn't just me. There are TWO different kinds of infections Avast is detecting whenever I try to browse around the forums. One of them is JS: Redirector-MA [Trj] and the other is HTML:Script-inf . I hope that helps!

I'll try and get an update. At least I can ban & delete even if it is the long way round.
Hmm, my homeputer with works solely on Avast constantly gets viruses in this place: ComputerName\AppData\Local\Mozilla almost every time after I've visited part of the site that gives the warning, but my workputer that works on the new Avast-Windows Defender mix never gets any warnings or viruses in here.
Same situation here - Avast at home and virus warning everytime on the site but my office antivirus - Eset Nod32 does not detect anything.
I also get a malicious site warning from Opera when trying to log in or when going to the conceptart.org home page .
Avast, warnings everywhere, some pages don't even loaded. I always could find a way to get over it till now, I need to be able to see my subscribed SBs - but now I'm absolutely unable to send a private message. A few minutes ago it was okay.
Hopefully the problem will be solved soon.
For me this mainly happens when I try to click links from an email, it also occasionally gives me an error page. I'd put what it says here but I can't get it to occur again.
Posting from phone. I cant go to the forums. Its blocked by my antivirus-ad aware
Nice, now my "internet provider" is blocking the forums for malware, using a proxy atm.
