Thanks for putting this up. I’ve been hearing alot about Wordpress blogs getting hacked, and I think if Wordpress users looked at this article they could definitly gain some insight.

@axemedia - What is ironic is that this post was mostly written as a result of having been infected with a virus last week. We have since cleaned site and locked down the server the site is hosted on.I was fearful of Google tagging the site with a "harmful site" tag and had been checking it daily for last 2 weeks or so. It is only last couple of days I have not checked and really should of this morning before publishing a post on Wordpress security.Now I’m waiting for Google to respond to a review request so they can hopefully remove the warning. Oh the irony... the irony!

Fantastic post, especially love the Wordpress Firewall plugin. Wish the WordPress would make  this stuff standard.

Update: Google has removed the malware warning. Should not trigger any more warnings. We apologize for any inconveniences.
