Anyway, I don't think that message you got was related to Sailnet.

But where is the malicious code that someones AV software is detecting? Is there an advertisement which is causing it? Did someone post a link to a malicious website in one of their postings?

CharlieCobra, I saw the fake Google link but where did that come from? Was it just added to a random place on the sailnet website? Or in an advertisement or someone's post?
It just popped a redirect to it, probably when a rotating ad ran.
