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's two other threads going on this already. You may want to check this one out.
Yea I got the same lil redirect last night while editing a hub as they are talking about. I Updated my antivirus just now, again and running a link checker now.
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?

I read a hub on this subject and tried to figure it out myself, but I am honestly still very confused on how I would go about doing this. If anyone has any tips, suggestions, or step by step instructions that would be wonderful!

Hello,I've been working hard over the past six months per hubpages and have what I think are a number of nice, interesting hubs. They are getting read quite a bit but few other hubbers choose to follow me. I sometimes will run a query of a topic I'm interested in (like the singer Neil...
