I noticed this site was banned from adsense recently (happened to me as well on a site) Maybe admin is behind the scenes doing stuff now...

I'm getting similar things now too. "Malicious URL Malware blocked" so I'm going to have to close LS and clean the PC.

Sorry guys.

Using google Chrome developer edition in Windows 8 Release Preview, "metro" mode... same result. A warning from Google about malware. No viruses detected by Norton.

For those who are seeing issues, experiment with disabling javascript in your browser and see what happens. Doing so may make navigating a bit more cumbersome, but it might be good for comparison. So far, I've seen no issues and have not heard from the site owner. This post was added without javascript to test functionality.

-> Select 'Preferences' in the Safari drop down menu or use <command> <comma>

-> Select 'Security' icon in the preferences pane

-> De-select 'Enable javascript' in the 'Web Content' area

While in the security pane, click on 'show cookies' and search for 'gigafeed' and remove any such cookies. Also, select 'Only accept cookies from sites I visit'.

Close the pane

In Firefox and Chrome you can also use the AdBlock+ extension and then create a manual filter for "http://click.gigafeed.org" (don't go to that site).

Using Explorer. I will try mozilla next.

It locked up my computer, too.
