    Perhaps Tyler Longren (author of the Thumbnail Viewer plugin) can comment: visiting your site in Safari pops up all sorts of malware warnings. I was trying to check your site for more detailed instructions on using this seemingly very useful plugin.

    Thank you.

    Wow, wish I would have noticed this post long before now.

    Anyway, longren.org was infected with the go00ogle.net malware. This happened due to a problem with the Audio Player plugin.

    Some malicious javascript got inserted into the audio-player.js file from that plugin. After disabling the plugin the problem went away.

    Longren.org has since been removed from Google's list of suspicious websites, as you can see here:

    I also made a blog post detailing the situation here:
