It means that the site contains malware.
And indeed, it does. And quite a lot. :)

Yes. On my test machine (XP SP2, all patches, IE7), it immediately started a download of a couple of Trojans... :o
Stay away from the site.

Was that caught by Avast Home? If not will Avast Home catch it? Maybe it's time for me to buy Avast Pro ;D.

there is increasing number of attacks on web hosting sites (usually free/cheap hosts) to inject 'malicious' scripts into pages hosted there ...

so if You got redirected or infected on till now safe site it this may be why :(
