Malwarebytes attempted to stop me from coming to this site because it was infected by a Trojan, true or false?

I run the paid for version of Malwarebytes, and I'm not getting a warning. Falls under the heading of %$#@*&^ computers.

Sometimes, though rarely, spammers will attack an ad site and one of the ads being displayed will have a trojan embedded. Since ads are displayed here and other sites, a malware scanner might find that before other safety precautions kick in (this is closely monitored, but sometimes things sneak through).

Other possibilities are a false-positive, or your DNS server was tainted (it happens...).
