Opera claiming malware on the site. I need your help!

Wiki - Gallery - Forum and More. Discuss them here.
If you go to the forum in Opera, it says there is malware on the site.
I need your help tracking it down,my hosting provider says they can not find it. And I have no clue what is going on

it's probably coming from the google ads and is not actually on the site.

Yeah.
One user said his antivirus software popped up with an issue too.

:D

At least 2 forum users have been infected- Both using IE
Id ban IE from the web if I could.

Someone reported it as Trojan:JS/IframeRef.K - But I cant find out what to look for on the server side.

i honestly think the malware is coming from the banner ads and not from the site itself.

all green lights on this scanner, no malware present:

http://siteinspector.comodo.com/public/reports/12596378

http://siteinspector.comodo.com/

same thing with the one i linked to earlier, except for the one blacklist entry with Yandexsafebrowsing

FWIW, i agree with frib, its likely a malicious ad - there's certainly plenty of them out there. i have yet to see a warning on this site on my end. but then again i tend to see many targeted ads and not so many random ones. someone with cookies turned off (or different interests!) is probably seeing a whole different group of ads.

So weird.
Does anyone's anti virus trigger on this site? I can try turning of the ads and see if that changes anything.

Id ban it if I could. But a good deal of people have no choice at work. The irony of IT professionals forcing IE to make the network safe.
