    That's interesting. I get on here several times daily on my Dell laptop, and have never had any warning from my anti-virus.

    it's the Pinstack site. I only get the notification from my AV as soon as I visit it. No other Web sites trigger that. I submitted a report to NOD32 and am awaiting response from them.

    Which AV software are you using?

    I am using NOD32. The Pinstack site trips my AV whether I use Firefox or Chrome browser.

    Hi guys, John at PS. MY AVAST has been blocking Pinstack for a week now. I do I solve it ? I have to disable the AV for 10 minutes, enough for an article and do it everytime I need to surf PS.

    The msg is this:
    MALWARE BLOCKED
    Object: http://pinstack.com/|>{gzip}
    Infection: HTML:Iframe-inf
    Action: Connection aborted

    I´m using Chrome. But it also blocks on IE.

    I hope this helps.

    I'll see what ESET says. I submitted my log files to them.

    There must be a bug if 2 different AV software programs present the same issue.

    What, if anything, changed at Pinstack since last week?

    I'll stick with mobile and Linux for Pinstack until I learn more.

    Thanks for the reports, I am will be investigating this issue today and get back to everyone. What's odd is that usually Google gets reports of a site having malware, and it will trigger an alert in Chrome/FF when you try and visit. So far that has not happened to me.

    I use Chrome and all I've seen is the site going to the bottom of each page I visit......no malware reports that I know of. I'm on my work PC which runs McAfee Enterprise or whatever the corporate version is.

    Don't recall anything on my personal laptop. All I'm running there is Microsoft Essentials.
