Is anyone else getting a malware notice when you go into a thread?

YES. I contacted a moderator, who said they're not showing anything. So it seems some of our systems are notifying about something, and some of our systems aren't.

Specifically - the sonata analysis forum.

I got it from the recital thread. Using a mac and Chrome browser and it was Chrome that complained.

I haven't noticed anything. I am using safari with my iPad. I'll check my desktop PC later.

I am not experiencing any problems with malware. Should I be? How did Malware get on here?

Yes - I get it on my PC with Windows 8 and Chrome on the "Is Perfect Pitch Cheating" thread. I don't get the warning looking at the same thread on my ipad.

Goodness no ... you shouldn't be.

However, it is evident that some people are. It sounds browser related. I normally access with Firefox (17.0.1,) and have now tested again with IE 8, and I use a PC. No errors/warnings for me.

I'm not sure how to contact PW admin, but sure they are aware of issue. I'd be happy to do more troubleshooting end user testing scenarios if it will help.

I doubt any individual thread or user is the culprit. But, somewhere along the line PW server has been infiltrated by some malicious code. This is my best guess at least.

No malware for me. I'm running the last version of Chrome (23.0.1271.97).

That's funny - now I'm getting a malware warning on the malware thread.

The message:
"Content from criticalmass.hu, a known malware distributor, has been inserted into this web page. Visiting this page now is very likely to infect your Mac with malware."

This is becoming frightening ... perhaps it is me, and I am infecting all the threads. Quick, someone tie my hands ... blush

Everything looks fabulous at my end though ... smile

One way to let admin know about the problem is to "notify" a moderator - Which I've just done.

So far I haven't seen any signs of Malware myself... I hope there are no serious problems brewing for anyone!!!

Yup. Malware warning from Chrome and Google.

It's not Pianoworld but an external image's host has been flagged as harmful. This happens to hosts all the time. The file in question is fine.

I will contact the inadvertent offender to stop the malware warnings.

Well, aren't you clever to have figured that out? Good for you!
I wouldn't have had a clue!

This was not far off the truth. As it turns out it was me. Or rather, the host site of my Kermit likeness that was the culprit. Bye, bye, Kermit.

Sorry everyone. Of course I had no idea. I will be more careful of swiped images (won't do this anymore) in the future.

Thanks so much, Devane for helping us get to the bottom of this.

Not so clever really. It's happened here a few times before. It takes about 30 seconds to locate to problem if you've seen it before.

@Greener, you're welcome.
