Got this today 'Attack Page'

Was visiting 'The Street,' which is a website dealing with the stock market. I visit this site frequently. Today, each time I tried to go there I got the above warning. This was a bright red warning (scary) which covered the entire screen. It said the website I was trying to reach was launching something or other, dangerous. There was no identifying information. I clicked on 'more info' and it was a Google warning. Never saw this before and I'm wondering if it was legitimate.

Probably so, I would stay away from it for a while, it likely has one of the drive by type malware infections on it some where, usually in an ad that was hacked. The website does not know till they start getting reports about it.
Google does now do warnings if a site can harm you.

Thanks Raven. It must be cleared up now as there's no problem going to the website. I didn't know Google had any sort of security set-up!
