    I'm not getting any warning message from it. Maybe one of the ads being displayed for you has some malware in it?

    Nothing here. Then again, I block most ads, so...

    I already got it just from opening this page.

    I'll try and see what's wrong with that thread, hold on.

    Also moving this to S&F.

    It's probably someone's signature but I can't really find out whose exactly...

    Or a script kiddie managed to inject a line of malicious code in somewhere. Infecting legit sites isn't exactly a new tactic.

    What I meant that the someone is trolling Codex because the site is unavailable right now for this issue which I believe to be false flag. Didn't know they were part of any ad things for MMO Champ

    Okay, I know whose sig it is. I'm removing it now and see if it stops and I'll PM the user about it.

    Give me a few secs.

    ---------- Post added 2012-12-31 at 03:06 PM ----------

    Okay, it's taken care of, I'm PMing the user about it, so there shouldn't be a malware warning anymore.

    If there is, just PM me or post here.

    And oh, the user I PMed should also receive a malware warning when opening my PM but it should be okay since it doesn't redirect to the site that is flagged with malware.
