weird malware warnings in WP admin section (2 posts)

    Google Chrome has begun warning me of malware when I try to access my WP site's admin area. The actual malware site it flags changes each time, but when I proceed to the wp-admin section (I tell it to ignore the warning) and then view the page source, I can't find any evidence of the offending sites.

    I've also received reports from users that the same issue is occurring when they access the front end of my site at http://www.aaronrosspowell.com, but I haven't been able to reproduce this.

    I haven't installed any new plugins recently and yesterday I uploaded a fresh copy of WP 3.0 over the existing files, just in case one of them got improperly update. The problem persists.

    I'm not at all sure how to fix this and would love suggestions on what to try next.

    Thanks.

    Looks like you may have been hacked. The message I received suggested that your google analytics plugin was the source of the problem but you might also want to check through the following links:
