Update: Malware False Flag Alert on the DP (Again); Also Affecting Tech Crunch, Other SitesSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Tue, 01/15/2013 - 13:47
Here's an article on the Malware False Flag:
Google’s malware checker on Tuesday started to detect ads from isocket‘s advertising network, distributed via the adsbyisocket.com URl, as a threat. The result is that sites using the advertising network are throwing up malware warnings on some pages visited by Google Chrome. These include TechCrunch, Cult Of Mac, and possibly others.
The article notes that Google has lifted the malware alert, so it should stop showing up here any time. As I noted in a comment on another thread, this is the third time this has happend to the Daily Paul. I'm familiar with the drill. I have removed all the isocket ad tags from the site, and resubmitted the site for a scan by Google. Hopefully things will clear up soon.
Thank you again for your patience.

I've seen the alert on Chrome and Safari. Other people have mentioned it. This is the third time it has happened. It is being triggered by the ad network. Very sorry about the trouble folks. I'll let you know more when I know more.
