yes, its all about ads,

6 domain(s) appear to be functioning as intermediaries for distributing malware to visitors of this site, including 173.214.255.0/, moreclicksearch.com/, trafmulticheck.com/."

Its an easy fix, and they can take care of it quickly no worries.

Today was the first time I saw this warning. Is it safe to post articles?

Yes - the development team are working on fixing whatever caused the messages, but it is probably linked to an advert.

I know that sometimes it has to do with ads. Had a client with a very good website but used shady ads, eventually got a evil ad.

Same here, in fact I had to "proceed anyway" just to get to this page.

I'm also getting it on instructables emails today because I have images turned on.
