It'll get fixed. The ad campaign comes from a pool, Doc chooses what types of ads he wants displayed, and sometimes from who. Malicious ads slip through sometimes. It doesn't take a whole lot of time to clear up, but we are talking a week or better before FF removes the block, if they ever do. :roll:

I can access the site via IE8 with no problem, but FF still throws the warning.
I have a photographic memory, only problem is, I ran out of film.

Same here. Neither MSE or Avira have tossed any warnings at me, Malwarebytes is quiet, basically everything the same as usual on IE8. FF won't let me in, though.

Yeah. Only two other sites than this I had visited were my online homework and Bill Owen's forums, both clean and constantly monitored by admins and techs. Plus, it had a download bar (uncloseable, by the time it had fully downloaded, it was too late.)

*BTW: What I was on was an XP machine; I dobut it would affect an Ubuntu install.
Viscious little bug.
Scam.
Deletes all restore points.
Prevents any antivirus from running properly.
Registry clogger.
Infects safe mode.

Yeah, definitely motherboards.org... I cleaned my laptop up, removed AVG9 and stuck the M$ antivirus on.. Tested it again with Motherboards.org and the M$ AV stopped it in its tracks (BTW, it is a Java exploit, stop Java and it struggles to get in)... 26th October and FF is still reporting this site as an attack site...
