Virus Warning
« on: December 15, 2014, 07:34:34 PM »
Hey Admins, there's something posted on Page 5 or 6 of the Demotivators thread that is tripping a Malware warning here at my work. Wanted to let someone know so it can get removed, I've enver had that warning on any other page here.

might want to just message them directly....  or report this thread.... ;)
When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

I think the thread is this:
http://www.jimbutcheronline.com/bb/index.php/topic,43037.0.html
But I had no warning. Anyway, that happened to me years ago with pages that had links to specific pages which had privacy rules that my work computer didn't like. I mean, they were no actual virus.

Edited: My intuition says is reply 65 for its link to another forum, but could be 68 for the specific mention to malware.

Missing you, Md 

There are many horrible sights in the multiverse. Somehow, though, to a soul attuned to the subtle rhythms of a library, there are few worse sights than a hole where a book ought to be. Someone has stolen a book (Terry Pratchett)

Hrm seems to have been cleared up, just went back and looked and it doesn't seem to be tripping anymore.
