Malware Ahead!

10 posts in this topic

As of the past couple days, I've noticed a disturbing trend. When I tried to go to the [i]Kicking Struggles[/i] Thread in the "Other NFL Teams" Forum, Google Chrome blocked me from going to the page, warning me that dangerous malware from freeimagehosting.net had been inserted on the page. The same day, after chatting on the Dump Thread with no problem, I went to the [i]Was Justin Tucker Ravens' Pro Bowl Snub? [/i]Thread in the [News] Forum and received the same warning from Google Chrome.

It seems to me a bot account has been created on this Forum for the purpose of laying malware on the various threads to infect the thousands that visit this site. May I suggest banning images from the infected site in question, freeimagehosting.net? I've accidentally tied to post photos from questionable websites and br.com successfully prevented me from doing so, so I know that this would be feasible.

This is what pops up when I try to enter the threads in question (couldn't save the exact webpage, so I found something that looks exactly alike; feel free to try to get on the pages in question with Google Chrome):

This time it's safe. One of the mods did some digging around and research. The image is part of a poster's signature. It's just an image of a guy with a paper bag over his head. The image has now been removed.

Chrome doesn't like the site because of (count 'em) two bad hits to it in the past 90 days, but it does have a history. Report: http://safebrowsing....magehosting.net

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]I noticed the same thing, didn't think too much of it though. I just hit the back button and then clicked the link again and it went away.[/i][/font]

That gif is the gift that keeps on giving!

Anyone know what that scene is from?
