    Skyrim Megathread Malware?

    SO, wasn't sure where to post this, but i tried clicking onto the Megathread Skyrim discussion, and Chrome blocks it, Saying there is malware on it :S

    The message it gives me "Content from X website (not sure if i can post it's name?) a known malware distributor, has been inserted into the webpage. Visiting this page now is very likely to infect your computer with malware

    I'm going to go ahead and move this over to Suggestion & Feedback.
    But before I do, do be adviced that ads or media embedded or even perhaps something in someones signature might be coming from something that in your country is blacklisted by Google.
    I also would advice you to provide as many details as possible. I see you're in the UK, which matters, since ads are region-specific.

    If it helps, I started on page 1 when I clicked the thread to test.

    I'm guessing not an ad then (I know, I'm clever, right?).
    I'll ask if someone might remove the offending piece of media.

    Searched the HTML code with Chrome, this is probably the problem.

    A Skyrim screenshot is being linked from http://www.fohguild.org.

    It is: http://www.fohguild.org/forums/attac...r1l_uk.bmp.jpg

    Oh, it's FoH, it's some guild that has a bunch of random stuff and generally has some issues apparently. It's someone's sig link probably.

    What appears to be corrupted is a image from the site fohguild.org (http://www.fohguild.org/forums/attac...r1l_uk.bmp.jpg to be specific), where the site is possibly under a malware attack.
    The main source of the picture is from http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...7#post12619027 as the OP has a direct quote to that post.

    EDIT: Heh, researching around makes posts come

    Linking what doesn't help? The post that holds the "main source" of the "thread corruption"? :b

    Glad that's nothing serious, i thought it would probably be an add or something someone had linked, that's normally the way it is

    Oh no, it just may make others get the error on this page.

    I don't think it'll pop the warning unless it's an embedded <img>, actually.
