Mods please check this -

if you go to this thread - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=253749.380

then try to navigate to the next page, currently Chrome is throwing a red flag, mentioning something about the site 'dearhusband . com ' being known as having malicious code distributed from it.  it looks like XSS to me.  Just thought I'd mention it.

do you even know what XSS is? The warning was triggered because there were 2 images from a blacklisted site. It's most likely a image hosting site that was hacked to distribute malware.

images in question:

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

An image is not a script, it can't do anything harmful unless you are on a very ancient browser.
