"Reported Attack Page" (Please read this post with Internet Explorer)

I received the "Reported Attack Page" message yesterday evening when I was viewing my blog using Mozilla Firefox. Well, I was shocked and wondered what happened. So I clicked on "Why was the page blocked?" but I won't go into details here. My blog loads fine on Safari, Chrome, Flock, and IE, EXCEPT for Firefox.

I still don't know what is wrong and to play safe, I've removed some widgets from my blog including my Amazon wish lists (arrrgh!). I've also removed a suspected file from my web hosting service provider. I requested for Google to review my website and hope that I will be delisted from this alert soon. Meanwhile, if this message pops onto your screen when you visit my blog, may I suggest that you try the following?

Below is the workaround to the issue until things go back to normal:

Go to Tools and click Options
Click on the Security tab
Un-check Block reported attack sites

After you've done this, you'll be able to view my blog. I hope you'd be willing to give the above steps a try. Otherwise, I hope you will continue to visit me using the alternative Web browsers I mentioned earlier. Sorry for all the trouble and thank you for your understanding!
