    When i logged into fishlore today, i got a warning that this site might contain malware that is "extremely harmful to your computer" did anyone else get this message? Seemed pretty odd to me. Do any of the moderators here know whats up?

    thanks for the help

    I also received that message and ran microsoft security essentials, and it cam up with a virus tracking. I have never had that happen before.

    Got that too with AVG. It was when I tried to open the DIY nitrate remover thread.

    I got some kind of warning at the top of the bar, like when something want to run an active x....first time I got something like that.

    I'll move this to Forum issues so Mike sees it.

    yes I got the same thing when I opened up the diy nitrate remover. Im thinking the mods might want to remove that post. something is wrong with it. I think it has a virus attached.

    Could someone sticky this to the top or sticky another post similar to this so other form members know about he virus? and maybe this could help them.

    I got it today too. My Avast popped up with a Trojan warning.

    One thing makes me curious about this virus. It is that: Who would want to give a virus to fishlovers? Seems like an odd thing to do.

    I got the Google Safe Browsing warning when attempting to visit the main forum page, , so it is not specific to any certain thread.


    Google report:  
    Norton report:  

    The Google report says it has "suspicious content", but no reported instances of actual malware being downloaded without user consent.

    The Norton report indicates a potential JavaScript exploit, further details of which can be found  .

    So to be clear, there is no virus, at least based on the warning I received. It's an attempted JavaScript exploit, which is a risk anytime 3rd-party JavaScript is trusted. Use Firefox and NoScript if you want to be safe, until Mike can isolate which ad or script is referencing this domain.

    Lol was just going to say I had the warning pop up on Google Chrome :p
    Hope Mike can track it down.

    I haven't received any warnings. I'm not sure if that's good news or bad news.

    I'm running Avira.

    I didn't get any either....

    I got a warning, but not the same language as the 1st post. I was just trying to open up the forum homepage, not a specific thread. I cancelled out, tried to reopen, and it was fine.
