Yep just happened to me. There are overseers of the web who can "block" access if a site is a reported source of attack, I think.

It was happening to me yesterday in firefox on linux, and the pages were coming up pretty wierd, possibly because all scripts were being blocked.

What you trying to do to our computers Roberdy?

so questions,

what anti virus or firewall software are you using?
have you tried different browsers on the same machine and got the same problem?

It ain't doing it today, seems to be a yesterday only thing, kind of wierd.

No antivirus, I'm on linux. No software firewall, I do have a hardware firewall though, that is definitely not causing this.

Happened with different browsers on different machines.

word from HQ is that some malicious code got injected into one of the banner ads, it's been cleaned but caused google to flag the site for a while. That flag has been reset now so all good.
