I tried opening India -FOrums Login page.. a weird web statistics tool I never used/authorised was attempting to install. since i had adequate security, I had a warning and i shut that down.

Since I did not want to complain randomly, I checked it with Google's safe browsing DIagonastics.

Google says 3 pages resulted in malicious software being downloaded without user content and the  latest of the 3 days is specified as today.

For me the login page generated a software download which I did not authorise

I too encountered a similar issue this weekend. And thankfully, had the security software in place. The Safe Browsing check I ran listed 5 trojans. Instead of putting the onus on the members, the admins should take some action. It really wouldn't help the website's reputation, if Google starts including the tag 'This website may harm your computer.' in its result listing.
