Umm whats with this?

Post by J-Muss » Mon Aug 27, 2012 10:46 pm

I was looking at the "post pics of your guns part II" Thread and came across this while going from page 18-19.
Anyone else get this message?

I think I've seen it before but that would have been a long long time ago. I only recently started using chrome, so it was back when I was using IE.

My bet is that somebody has linked a picture from the website infinity tactical. If that website has been reported to have malware, anything linked to that website is gonna be flagged, and will shut down the whole page.

Edit*

I found the offending image.

it is an image linked by gotchya about his M4 S-System on page 18. it is also quoted in another persons post on page 19 explaining the error on both pages.

Archer is correct. This error was discussed within the gun thread itself and has to do with the image and the location in which it is hosted. Only users of Chrome see the error message, which is a good and bad thing. The bad thing is the fact that the page won't load. The good thing is the fact that its warning you about a possible site that contains malware.


I'll update the post to just link to the picture.
