I just received a Red Skull on one of my hubs, "One Hundred: What Does it Mean?" This hub was published back in October 2012 and is just now getting this message. I went in to check and can't for the life of me figure out what the violation is. Has anyone had this happen? Any ideas on how to resolve this? I'm stumped!
Go to your My Account page and click the Hub Violations option in the black box on the upper left. It should give you the details of your violation:
Dear tillsongitan . . .what Christy said, or email firstname.lastname@example.org and you should get the answer.
Thank you both! Says it links to Malware or phishing sites....guess the "sale item" are unsavory!
If you go the the hub there should be a link near the top -- click on that and it will tell you which link is causing the problem
This sort of thing can happen if a site you've linked to has been hacked. The violation info should tell you which link is causing the problem.

Just got home from the hospital and checking my HP account I found the Red Skull of Death on my Social Services hub. I read my hub over, couldn't find any violations and when I went to check my account again the Red Skull of Death was gone. Anyone have any ideas? I'm glad it's...

One of my hubs has a red skull, but it doesnt have the 3 links to one site? Why?One of my hubs has a red skull next to it saying it has 3 or promotional links to one site, but it doesn't. It has a number or links but all to different sites, no duplicates at all? I dont understand why? Any ideas?

I have two hubs with red skulls for malicious code warning. My links are to Flickr, Viglink, and other hubs. I cannot get rid of these things.
