While on the Hubpages main site, my malware program goes nuts, blocking attack after attack. All other sites seem fine. I have noticed this on the site in the past as well. Anyone with issues/thoughts?
We have had issues in the past with certain malaware and antivirus programs incorrectly identifying HubPages as a risky site. We've reached out in the past but received no response to our request to have the site whitelisted.

We do have the very occasional rogue ad, but whenever people have reported issues with malicious code in the past, it's always been caused by something on the person's computer rather than anything from HubPages.

The Most disheartening thing is pages that over take me in Google search are in fact advertisements and few sentence pages. In...

Does this site have malware?When I joined earlier today my anti virus software (Avira) said this site had malware. I made an exception & haven't had any issue so far. Anybody else have a similar experience?

I knew it couldn't be that good forever, but I am concerned that it's Healdove that seems to be getting hit.
