    MMO-Champion Malware Alert

    I was wondering if anyone else has been getting these errors when trying to load MMO champions. I am on a corporate network that is very protected, so Im not sure whether the issue is on my side or not. I am using google chrome and it warns me that there is malicious content within the site, I can link a screenshot if need be. It will let me proceed through the warning, but the warning concerns me.

    I had It a few days ago, but It was only on certain pages in some threads. so might've been links which caused it.
    Testing: Will probably be toooooo big.

    This could be your issue, or it might be someones signature. Chrome will tell you the URL that it is blocking (see the red rectangle below):

    I had the same thing a few days ago. It only happened when trying to get into the Path of Exile megathread though. Looked to be a particular ad that was causing it.

    Sometimes updated...

    Yeah, lots of sites are having this problem (not just MMOC or Curse):

    They just got mistakenly flagged; it's not passing on malware to anyone. Don't worry.
