Do you have a specific malware plugin or just base functionality in chrome? I didn't see any errors on that page when using chrome (I usually use firefox, but have chrome installed).

I'm seeing that warning too in Chrome. Pretty sure it's a built-in detection. No idea why, though.

Ah, here it is. I guess I didn't read the warning very closely.
Content from members.lycos.nl, a known malware distributor, has been inserted into this web page. Visiting this page now is very likely to infect your computer with malware.
What's triggering it is the avatar of the user named Vincent Vega. Of course, it's not malware or anything close. It's just being flagged because of the domain name from which it's being served.

Thanks for the detective work, Eli! In firefox, I got a warning when I went to the site directly, but don't get it with the image linked in. I removed the avatar and will PM the user just in case he hasn't seen this thread.

Can those who got the error please check if it's fixed now?

Chrome popup alerted me

error message is -

I removed it from user Infinity and sent him a PM. Okay now?
