Looks like someone is using this site to phish, as 1) there is no way you could detect a virus on my computer and 2) I haven't been on this site in months. Please advise.

It isn't, but it's a pretty big part of the Turbine Community, with Devs occasionally posting here and supplying skin packs. So it's more along the lines of they want to know when people are trying to phish their customers - since presumably, only LotRO/DDO players would visit this site.
