WranglerForum compromised?

Hello everyone. I've been getting the website blocked by Avast on my PC for a while now. I'm writing this via the android forum app. Long story short, when I investigated the block today, I learned that some element on the site is connected to malware; frozerry-dot-com (spelled it out for safety).

If you're accessing the website from your PC, you might want to do a malware scan.

To the forum admins, visit the malware traffic analysis site for details. (www.malware-traffic-analysis.net/2014/06/05/)

I have been getting the warning that my security suite had blacked the malware also. I was wondering about this myself.

Thanks for the heads up everyone. If you're getting a warning from your Anti Virus about the forum please post in here. If possible when you post can you provide a link to the page you were on when you received the warning. This will help us pin point where the Malware might be on the forum.

I don't get a warning from Avast until I click a forum link from a search engine. I use Google mostly. Then I get the pop up claiming the page may be compromised. Surfing around on the forum on my PC, not problems.

Hopefully the uploaded image has enough information to give you some idea of where in the page the reference is loading. It was captured from the the "Page Source" feature in Firefox.

Whoops! I forgot I am also running Windows Firewall.

So, my computer configuration is W7 Professional (64 bit), Microsoft Security Essentials, Malwarebytes Pro, and Windows Firewall.

I browse with Firefox and occasionally with Chrome.

I use the same exact configuration at home, at my office, and on my laptop. Firefox and Chrome are both set up to sync favorites between platforms.

No pro-blems with this site.
