Firefox picking up malware?

I tried to refresh TechTalkz this morning and I received this warning, however I could access TechTalkz fine last night and it's still working in Chrome. Any suggestions?

Same here, but on Chrome. Now I'm on Firefox and everything is ok. What's going on?

It's ok for now. The forum is clear. I don't get the message anymore.

Re: Firefox picking up malware?

I was getting the same error too. This happened before. And it was fixed. But it could have happened again.
