I have serious security on my PC and it picked this right up! Be careful and run a maleware scan when you log off today.

I wouldn't be too worried about it, Robt.

I have had the site under the strict eye of a cyber spy. Just one, though. My other eye usually likes to doze off. My rear iris just gives out nasty farts.

I haven't seen that message but I have had security warnings after signing in here before. I have had a few virus alerts while clicking links posted on here too.

It's not just you! I can't even click on Opinions without getting that. I've copied it and sent it to my Tech buddy and we'll find out who is responsible although I have a feeling I already know!

I have the same issue, I can't click on Opinion without that message popping up, let me know when you find out. I just scanned my PC through AV and nothing came up.

Sometimes when I get a warning about a site, the URL is a McAfee warning and sometimes it's just spam.

This isn't spam. Someone has stuck that page up. I'm close now as I found the I.P. address info.

So let us go with the current theory, that is if 'soandso' has you blocked, you will see this. To do that they would need to be able to query the Amirite DB in order to see if 'soandso' had you blocked or not.

This would logically mean that there would need to be a bit of code that performs this operation on every one that clicks the page where it appears.

So, thereforth, it may well be an injection or exception.

You should be able to search the server logs to find it.

Hi guys - so this was not a hack. Somebody just made a post with a link to "ageofshitlords.com", so an image from "ageofshitlords.com" was being loaded on amirite. Google has this site blacklisted, so Chrome shows a warning when trying to display that image.
We've deleted all the links to that site and banned the URL.

Not so, James as I have been getting that warning since late yesterday afternoon when I try accessing the site either from my favorites or from my browser. I was able to get on now because someone sent me this link and from here I can access the rest of the site.

This is my mistake - I did not see it on this site - I saw it on the "bunny" site which is strange because there are only a couple of people who are on here that are on that site also. Sorry for the confusion.

No, but I would worry.
And just in case, I'd inform both of you!
