    If you view the source of the page, you can see that a user by the name of Matt Grum posted an answer and included images that come from his website. – Rebecca Chernoff Nov 29 '10 at 16:47

It looks like Matt Grum's Website is hosting malware - intentionally, or unintentionally, because he links to his site in a response to that question, it is throwing the malware warning.
