Using Chrome I picked up a bright red "Malware detected!" warning on this topic page in the Accumulated Forum Knowledge.

The warning said it contains elements from the site members.multimania.co.uk

    Every similar case we've had of this has been a false positive on Chrome's part.

    members.multimania.co.uk appears to be the root URL for a free ad-supported hosting company. It would not surprise me in the least to discover that there are is all kinds of malware on the various pages people put up there.

    Chrome does appear to be casting quite a wide net, though, if it's throwing alerts for anything hosted by that company.
