Hi,

Everytime I try to access LQ with Firefox (Slackware 14.0), there's a fat red warning about the site being infected with malware, and I get redirected to stopbadware.org.

WTF ?!?

Looks like the admins are working on this, and the offender (one of their ad providers) has been disabled for now.

If you had done a search you would have found that yesterday a thread was started about this along with many others that have now been closed because they all refer to the exact same thing.

Well, I first thought it was a problem with my browser, since this happened on several sites I regularly visit. I only took LQ as an example in my post. One only sees what is already in the mind, as they say.
