Every time I click on an external link I get a warning page instead of the actual link.
It seems your redirect thing is classed as "Malicious" and "Dangerous" by Trend.

I just came on to say that as well.

Seemed to be links to ebay that really upset trend micro.

I seems to happen on and off but can be quite irritating. Not sure if the fault lies with the service PH is using or Trend.

Trend I would think.

That service is a piece of javascript which basically appends a little bit of affiliate code if you click out to sites like eBay or Amazon. If you buy something, we get paid a small referral fee.

Nothing sinister about it, and it doesn't place anything more malicious than a cookie in your browser.
