More,

I went to the page anyway, no images, just text. The source is all in one long line which is not helpful. There's ads and links to online casinos in there.

Maybe it's been hacked.

I found the same issue using Google Chrome ... differently with Microsoft Explorer 11 (11.0.31) I didn't observe any problem (the Internet security is set on medium-high level)

Differently if I go to the page anyway (obviously using Google Chrome) the website is displayed properly, without issues...

Looks like fba_026.zip contains a UPX compressed exe. Removed from site and requested rescan - could take 72 hours.

It's not meant to be - it's a modern site entirely generated on the fly and optmised for delivery. The CSS and Javascript are also entirely minimised.

That's part of why the site scores 98% PageSpeed and 96% YSlow scores.
