Philly Speaks back up, again, hit with malware insertion

As of this morning, the forum has been cleared and most browsers should stop offering the warning, according to an email from Philly Speaks founder Wil Reynolds.

We know something is up with popular web forum Philadelphia Speaks whenever the comments and emails start rolling in.
This past week, Philly Speaks was offering visitors a warning, declaring the site malicious.
As of this morning, the forum has been cleared and most browsers should stop offering the warning, according to an email from Philly Speaks founder Wil Reynolds.
“We had a malware insertion in vBulletin,” Reynolds wrote. “But we’re back up, just waiting to get back on the clean list for Google and Trend Micro.”
Part of the resolution included updating their VB forum software, which means a different look both in browsers and on mobile devices. More tweaks are expected in the coming days.
The forum was hacked back in May and has faced other set backs after replacing popular Phillyblog last fall.
