Just a warning:
Google warned me of a possible malware when loading a page on this forum.

Sounds like over zealous noob-proofing on Google's part?

Er... somewhere in the speculation section. It wasn't a constant thing: it happened twice in maybe 50 page loads.

IIRC, the same thing happened in 2011.

Not trying to make you panic or anything, just saying I got this message.  Wink

I like how a person is depicted stealing virtual coins.

I PM'd theymos about this (and moved the topic to Meta)

Edit:

@OP
If it's rare I'm guessing it may have to do with an ad, did you notice anything consistent?

Google is a little too paranoid, sometimes, because if there were a vulnerability with images, we'd all be screwed - blacklist or not.

Well, there was once a major security issue with the way GDI handled images, actually:

But yeah, for the most part there haven't been any major exploits to the make the rounds in the last few years along these lines.
