    My virus scanner warns me that the site has mallware on this url (probably a banner):

    In what way does Avast think it is "harmful"?

    I use Adblock Plus and Ghostery so I'm safe, right?

    I use Adblock Plus as well, but I still get the notification. You might want to run for your life screaming.

    Which page are you seeing the warning on?

    Which avg program are you using?

    I tried viewing the link you posted, just shows as a complete black page to me sorry.

    I installed the freebie version of Avast and so far haven't had any warnings on either Chrome or Firefox on Chess.com

    Don't tell my girlfriend there's mallware here. She'll want to shop and I'll have no time for chess.

    Nothing wrong here. 0/10 risk rating (not that I know what risk it's referring to).

    AVG doesn't report a virus for chess.com but did say something about Lady Gaga.
