"All that means is one of the advertisements being shown on here has been reported - to Google by users - under the presumption that it spreads malware. It isn't PbNation it is the advertisements; furthermore you are unlikely to get a virus unless you click on the advertisement itself.

I would suggest you keep your firewall on and likewise with your anti-virus. If you do not own an Anti-Virus I suggest these free ones:

Avira
AVG

Stay safe!"

It could also be a result of links to websites with malware, perhaps in various threads or signatures.
