You shouldn't pull static assets from 3rd party sites like that. Looks like you've fixed it. You should also use W3 TotalCache, WP Minify, or a similar plugin to minify and combine your CSS and JS. You have a lot of files loading which slows the site down.

They apparently weren't pulling static assets from a 3rd party site. They were using a theme developed by a 3rd party. That theme is hosted on their own server but has the developer's name and URL listed in the comments of the CSS (which is fairly common practice). No assets were being loaded from an external site, but it looks like that URL in the comments triggered Google's alerts. That said, combining and minimizing CSS and JS would have eliminated the comments and prevented the issue with Google's scanner.
