    Malware warning

    Hey, just a heads up, got the following message while visiting the Steam Winter Sale thread in the Video Game Discussion forums:

    Danger: Malware Ahead!
    Google Chrome has blocked access to this page on www.mmo-champion.com.

    Seems to be happening on the first page, but not the most recent. Probably a signature or something.

    I just got this in the LOTR mmo thread in Video Games Discussion. Do we have a bad banner floating around again?
    Sir Robin, the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.
    Who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angnor.
    Who had almost stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol.
    And who had personally wet himself, at the Battle of Badon Hill.
