I wonder if they are aware of the issue.  Usually, a webmaster will take down his site until it gets fixed.  It does seem to be more and more common to see websites infected by malware that is not put there by the owner.
 
Norton checked the site and found no problems.  http://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=lenstip.com
I'll run some other malware checks.
 
McAfee didn't find a issue 
 
Here is what Google says:
What is the current listing status for lenstip.com?<blockquote>This site is not currently listed as suspicious.
Part of this site was listed for suspicious activity 1 time(s) over the past 90 days.
 
I wonder why I get a different answer from Google when I checked just now??
