      Your alienware gaming laptop photo has an attribution containing a link to that site, and HP is correct; it is a potentially harmful site.  Remove that link.

      I will add that your RSS link to your "latest" hubs is likely to cause trouble, too; as time goes on that link will change to different hubs, hubs that may well have nothing to do with the hub on gaming laptops.  Unrelated links (and you being the author of all of them doesn't count as related) are unacceptable; all must relate directly to the hub they are on.

      Then, beyond all that, did you get permission to use photos from those other sites?  There is a clear notice at the bottom of "fresh laptop reviews" that it is copyrighted; you must have explicit permission to use their photos.  And that is true whether the notice is there or not; virtually no photo on the web is free for the taking unless specifically stated so.

        Thanks so much for offering all that help and feedback on the Hub, wilderness!

        Joseph Muendo, it looks like you removed the link in question, which is great.

        This is what i call "first-hand" help and actually it is one of the reasons why HP is more "human" than other sites out there. Thanks wilderness for being helpful to us all.

    When you see warnings like that, someone may be trying to hack your site(s)...it is in order that YOU take some further precautionary measure to seal up your own security, or Hubpages will be forced to do it for you - for THEIR security.  Waiting for Hubpages to do it could have negative repercussions for you.  What I would do is delete the item(s) they say could be causing the problem as best you can.  If you are trying to cooperate, Hubpages will help and finish the job for you.  But how do they know if you are not encouraging the hack or doing it yourself if you do not move first.
