Just got this message while trying to look at the 'Musings of Emperor Ferguson' thread

Image

EDIT: According to http://safebrowsing.clients.google.com/ ... e&hl=en-GB it's something to do with an image uploaded by Jarv. Probably nothing to worry about but I thought it should be brought to somebody's attention.

I think it will be any thread in which Jarv's Meerkat image is featured. I'm sure it's nothing to do with him, proably just someone hosting malicious files from the same hosting company.

Ta for the head's up...

In this case, Multimania is the new name for Lycos' Tripod (been around years, since the Geocities days) - they're a free web space provider, so of course there's stuff on there that you don't want, anyone can sign up and upload crap. Any yes. images alone can contain secret, runnable code - if you're ever unsure, don't save the file you are nicking - do a screen copy instead and paste it into your image editor and save it so you know it's clean.

And there ends the lesson in linking to images (or anything else) on free web space.

Don't. :thumbup:
