Site listed as having Malware in Chrome

I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues: YES
My site's URL (web address) is: www.creativepanes.com
Description (including timeline of any changes made): My site is flagged as containing malware in Chrome but only to some visitors. I've visited in all browsers on both PC and MAC, through different IP addresses but don't get an issue.
 
I've had the site verified through Google webmaster and no Malware was detected. Will this warning go away or is there something hidden that needs to be removed.
 
The visitors that mentioned malware are from South America, if that would have any kind of issue on it.

Using Chrome from South America here, and I don't see any warning. I doubt that warnings are limited to a location, what's harmful for some is harmful for everyone.

Was your site hacked recently? Or were you linking to a malicious site?

I don't know if I'm linking to malicious sites for sure as it is inspiration blog with links to hundreds of sites. We've visited each one and haven't found any issues, whether these sites have been attacked since I don't know.

It looks like you are getting some random/intermittent cross site warnings.  If you are getting a warning on one or more of the pages of your site in browsers such as Chrome, Firefox or Safari and your site is not (yet) flagged by Google it is probably a cross-site warning. If browsers such as Chrome detect code on your page (scripts, iframes) that load content from or redirect to a flagged site the browser will throw up a warning. The warning will not identify your site it will identify the site that is hosting the malware that is being loaded on your page.  SEE:

They do not occur every time you visit your homepage so can not tell too much.  One of the sites that came up in the warnings is newportalse . com.  Maybe they are one of your advertisers??

Thanks Redleg & ironcito.
 
It looks like there is something infecting. I've enlisted Sucuri and they're currently going through the site to clean anything that might be infected.
 
Hopefully that will do the trick.

Would really appreciate any information on what Sucuri finds, it will no doubt be of value to other site owners faced with the same hack.

It appears that your site is running wordpress, and is probably using a theme which incorporates the recently-exploited timthumb plugin.
 
Try these links for ways to update timthumb/delete the exploited code:

Sucuri found the issue mentioned by NuclearBlast. and cleaned the file. I've been told that the issue is resolved but I've added another post to the site and since then I've received a warning from a Firewall plugin that I've upload to WP, so it may not be fully clean.
 
Heading in the right direction though. I'll try the links NuclearBlast mentioned and post an update

Site all clean.
 
Subscribing to Sucuri seemed to have done the job and the firewall is doing its job.
 
Thanks everyone.
