WOW ! Just today I received this notice.

Mozilla Firefox, Google, and my AVGAnti-Virus are all kicking in.

Is anyone else having the same problem with Firefox ?

Bit of homework on my part.
The same error is on both mine and Chris's computer.
My AVGhas also popped up stating who is to blame,
a site called jetzvorun.net (for God's sake don't go there).

I'm running my Spyware Destroyer now to see the damage.

I send you here, which lists the site by Scan McAfee SiteAdvisor:

http://www.siteadvisor.cn/sites/jetztvorun.net/postid?p=5181410

WARNING THIS SITE POSES SERIOUS SECURITY THREATS:
Threats on this and other malware sites may include fake antivirus scams,
malicious redirects, viruses, trojans, rogue installers, key loggers, droppers,
browser exploits, and a range of other security threats.

and a little bit of investigative work I did here:

http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?comments_parentId=99702&forumId=1

About sites that claim theirs are under attack from Google and
Firefox themselvesand listing them (unfairly) as Malware.

If you are getting the same red page, please reply
in the comment field below so we can tally some numbers up.

GOODNEWS! I have heard from the Adminstrators of Booksie !

We believe the site has been hacked and are working to find the problem and resolve it. Sorry for the inconvenience. - Booksie Admin

We now think it's from an ad that was running on the site. We've suspended running ads from this particular network. We have to date found no evidence of a virus in the code on the site. In fact, if you look at Google's report it shows no malware or viruses detected. We believe they flagged the site because an ad pointed to a malicious site. We are continuing to investigate. - Booksie Admin

Thank you.
