Here is the link : http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=17913&page=6

rapidas.webcindario.com is a known blacklisted website that can infect your computer with malware according to Google safe browsing.

This website
claims to contain content that is dedicated to women's sprinting in athletics including, biographies, photos, articles, rankings, records and statistics : mywot..........

Looks like you might be using an older version of Google Chrome, as can be seen in the screenshot in your initial post.

You may need to run some virus scans.

The latest version of Google Chrome is : Version 23.0.1271.64 m.

I prefer Mozilla Firefox.

The page displays it depending on what combination of adverts are shown, I didnt get the warning straight away, but if you refresh often enough it appears.

The version of chrome makes no difference, the information used for anti phishing comes from Google, not from within Chrome (Opera uses google anti phishing as well). The fact that you dont get such warnings in Firefox is not really a recommendation of that browser and its lessened security.

I use Google Chrome as a second browser sometimes. I had already opened the link to page six of the London Olympics Doping Thread in Google Chrome prior to my initial post to test out that link...... http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=17913&page=6
........to see if I could find the problem that Zam pointed out in his initial post.

I have phishing and malware protection enabled in Google Chrome. I am also using the Chrome extensions, Do Not Track Plus and Add Block Plus. I have reloaded that page numerous (30 odd in Google Chrome) times, to test it out, and I have not come across any problems whatsoever. So as you have already pointed out, the problem arises depending on what combination of adverts are shown.

I am also using the Firefox extension versions of Do Not Track Plus and Add Block Plus with the Firefox Browser.

It's not a virus as such though. This comes up if someone linked a picture or link to website, and the filter finds the website / picture bit suspicious.

Doesn't mean there's a virus. Delete the pic / link from someone posted in that thread on page 6 or 12 and it will be back to normal.

Pretty much correct, from what I know. In pwn2own, Chrome remains untouched. However, when you add the noscript app to Firefox (Chrome has a similar add-on) - you significantly increase your security, and decrease the ability of malware site to invade your box. The poster "TheGame", post #3, with the vid that won't close? They are infected with malware.
