Jeff has always been a highly suspicious character.

Jeff recently said that he found out his blog had a shit-ton of malware, and that he had spent a long time getting rid of it all. It appears it's all back. I wouldn't go there if I were you.

He's aware of it. This is a post from the blog itself:

So Google’s reporting that this site isn’t safe for browsing. I’ve been fucking around here and there, trying to get the site clean again, but it looks like someone went through and hosed a bunch of WordPress installations that are hosted on MediaTemple. Even the other domains I host on this account had bad PHP files thrown on them. I need to do some grepping and some SQLing and some sobbing, then I’ll resubmit it to Google to see if they find it to be clear.
