I get it too, and probably everyone using Firefox who has not switched off those warnings does.

If you bravely ignore this warning, all you currently get from forums.radioreference.com is a HTTP Error 503; I suppose they are aware of it and are fixing the problem...

I go to radioreference.com at times & use firefox as my browser, have never had any warnings or problems with the site; kinda strange Huh

I'm in country=USA, state=OHIO, county=MAHONING.  Search out frequencies to listen to for counties of TRUMBULL, COLUMBIANA, & PORTAGE.

I use Norton, and visited the radio reference site several time in the last few days.  No warnings.

They appear to have fixed the problem, no more warning with Firefox or Chrome and the forum is back.

They use vbulletin for their forum and there was recently an exploit for it; maybe it had something to do with it: http://slashdot.org/story/13/10/09/1253209/dangerous-vbulletin-exploit-in-the-wild
