Whenever I visit hubpages.com site, my AVG Internet Security gives a warning stating that hubpages.com is vulnerable. It says "This site might be vulnerable. Sharing personal information on this site is not advised. Learn more".
Even when I exit the message, it comes again after 3 or 4 seconds. I don't get this message for any other web site. It comes only when I visit HubPages.
Anyone knows why it is coming like this? I can of course include Hubpages.com as an exception in AVG. But why it is coming like this?
I'm having this issue again too. Maybe an older version didn't have this false positive, but the current one does. I did click on the link to stop getting this error message and that does work.
My apologies, I thought AVG had cleared this for us. As you can see, their website lists HubPages as safe, but apparently they have not updated the software to reflect the same.

Every time I use Hubpages, I always receive warning alert from AVG. I often ignore it but constant warnings just made me post this. Is Hubpages really safe to share personal information.

Adsense sent me a message that says that my publisher ID is not in my Hubpages and HowTheyPlay ads.text files. My earnings are fine generally, not too concerned, just wanted to bring the issue to your attention.
