Malware warning? Anyone else?

 I normally use Google Chrome as my browser and for some reason right now, it is telling me that the website contains malware. IE is letting me on the site though. Strange.

Did it to me too, so I'm mobile now.
When I clicked on the advance button to get more info it says there is nothing wrong with the site. No clue why this is happening.

yes I use firefox, but also have two anti-viral programs, and it took me at least five minutes to convince my laptop to let me on the site. and I'm now running all my malware and anti-virus searches....

 a little of both.

 

Quoting SamNStefanMommy:

 That is wierd. Either IE just sucks at blocking bad sites, or Google and Firefox are being stupid right now LOL

Quoting SimplyEnchanted:

Firefox is giving me a malware warning for this site right now as well
