      I got the Exploit Blackhole Exploit Kit warning too, just visiting a persons profile.  Oddly, I realized I wasn't even logged in yet, I had just gotten to hubpages.  This concerned me that anyone visiting the site could find this immediately. 

      I feel fortunate that my security caught it.  I hope to be reassured soon that this will end, so that others don't consider this a site to avoid.  I know others have worked so hard as well to put a lot of original content here and hope this is the first and last time I deal with it.

      I have not had all the others that I have heard about.  Just this Ex. Blackhole Exploit one.

    There are no ads on profiles. What's up with that...?

      Yes, I wonder that as well, paradigmsearch.  It was viewing a profile only, then it showed up.  I am confident the HP team will address and then share the answer with us so we don't have to be wondering if it will happen in the future, surely?
