I just tried to pin a hub, but I was told it was going to be blocked because the site was known to have suspicious activity.
I'm using Chrome. The pin was going to be from my hub about decluttering and organizing kids' toys, which does not have a red skull or anything. I assume it's not a problem with my computer, hubs, or the browser but instead because of the site-wide malware issue. Will this be a separate problem that will need to be resolved?
@ThePracticalMommy My guess is that this is related to the same malware issues affecting some subdomains.
We have made some changes to address the issues.
It is probably going to take some time for the non-malware state to cascade across the internet and other sites, depending on how often sites check the malware listing.
We hope the malware warning on the site to be resolved over the next 2-24 hours.
I imagine that's the case. The issue should be resolved in a couple of hours. If Pinterest is still blocking our links after that, I'll dig deeper to see what else might be causing the problem!
thanks so much for pointing this out!
Just tried clicking over to a couple Hubs from Pinterest- looks like we're all clear now!

On my newest hubs the little P for pinterest is not showing on the photos. Also sometime the pinterest icon on the left works, and sometimes it doesn't.

I don't have a link to anything malware that I know about. We can't even put HTML in our profiles any more. Where is this coming from? It's come up three times tonight when I clicked on older posts I have written here....

I chose to not have my stuff pinned on Pinterest, so I do not know the answer to my question. I am just curious. Do you feel that Pinterest, with recipes, images, and other pins, diverts traffic from your hubs?...

We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to...
