    There can be a couple of reasons for this.

    1. Some spam-bot purposely - or some REAL user accidentally - posted a linky to an attack site here on PnP. In lots of cases, it's on posts like, "What is your favorite _____?" and then they have, "Well, mine is ____, and I can download it free at www.omg-bad-site.com.biz.GTFO" The LINKY is to an attack site, so McAfee sees PnP as supporting attacks. The mods are pretty quick at getting rid of stuff like that... but it takes a while for McAfee to catch up to reality

    2. The site is hosted by a third party (like 99% of sites), and some OTHER attack site is also hosted by the same bank of computers. While PnP is still cool, McAfee sees the entire server as being infected... to include PnP and any other legit site on the servers.

    McAfee is paranoid - like it's creator - but it's thorough. Unfortunately, innocent sites can get caught in the cross-hairs.
