    Most likely to scare new people away that use AVG.

    Actually that block message was sent by Google (I don't use AVG, but Firefox uses Google's Badware blocker lists, and it made that.)

    Don't immediately dismiss that particular message as a Hoax. While I haven't received any notices from my Anti-Virus software, it's not impossible for NWFA to get infected or compromised, then all it would take would be for someone to get a virus/malware/badware by visiting the site and reporting it.

    It looks like there was no infection here however. Always best to check. (I immediately logon with my phone when I see messages like that.)

    I received the same message and I don't use AVG either. It's definitely a Google thing.
