    I was browsing yesterday and I noticed that the webpage http://adventurebuddies.net/blog/20...poles-vs-trekking-poles-whats-the-difference/ gives me the following warning on Chrome:

    I see the problem anywhere on the website's blogging area. I sent a notice to the owner of the website to let them know.

    What actual risk of infection is there to viewers of blogs with content from topblogarea.com? What is the risk of infection to Mac users by visiting the topblogarea.com website?

    Topblogarea.com was probably hacked and used to distribute malware via the content provided by its service.

    The risk of being infected by malware without you being tricked to explicitly install it is virtually zero.
