Uh, no I did not forget anything. I pointed you to the page and the problem. I did not intent to sensationlize anything. I did not blame Instructables or say something like why did you not notice this. I simply said this is what my browser Chrome and I found today. I posted the page where I first encountered it and the problem. Anyone with a brain can read the report themselves and find out specifically the problem. Sadly the general populous can read it. I would have emailed the administrator directly but this was the only method available to me to report.

"And did you notice that the evaluation is not for Instructables at all, but rather for one of the banner-ad servers ("creatives.more-banners.com")?

Clearly Rorotofu didn't actually read what he decided to post."

Yeah no duh! Did you notice that I made no reference to being any fault of Instructables. I read exactly what I posted, so bite me. If you want to read into things thats your problem. The banner advertisement service is being displayed on this site. On top of that 13 different pages I tried Chrome restricted access to this site on all 13 pages. Not on all pages but only when that banner advertisement service was displayed.

The only thing that would require infection would be the user to click on that banner advertisement. I had to use Firefox with noscript before I could get a clean run. So before trying to take offense to something maybe you should think about the situation logically.

If the site is providing or displaying content which could lead to malware for users would that not be something that should be brought to attention?

Maybe you should read the full thing yourself.

"What is the current listing status for more-banners.com?
Site is listed as suspicious - ----->!!!!visiting this web site may harm your computer.!!!!!!! <-------

Part of this site was listed for suspicious activity 2 time(s) over the past 90 days."

All it would take as I said before is the user clicking on an advertisement from more-banners.com . Personally I do not care. I would have never even signed up for an account I just wanted to make what I found known so the site admin can address it and this was the only way to do so. I just wanted to look up plans on a earthbox.

Did you leave off this telling part for a reason? "Of the 207 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2009-05-05, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days."
And did you notice that the evaluation is not for Instructables at all, but rather for one of the banner-ad servers ("creatives.more-banners.com")?

Clearly Rorotofu didn't actually read what he decided to post.
. Not nearly as sensational if that part is included. ;)
